    Default Jeff Healey, 'Roadhouse' singer, dies at age 41

    Legendary blues guitarist Jeff Healey has died, his publicist said Sunday. The Canada rock musician had battled cancer for his entire life.


    Healey, 41, had also lost his eyesight to the disease.


    The musician had performed with such great guitar players as B. B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Albert Collins.


    His band, simply named the Jeff Healey Band, has sold more than 1 million albums in the United States.

    Don't know who this guy is, but it's still a shame that he had to die so young. R.I.P.

    I'm sad about this. I really only knew one or two of his songs, but I was always amazed how he learned to play the guitar when he was so young that his fingers wouldn't fit around the neck and so he played backwards. I didn't know it was cancer that robbed him of his sight, I thought it was a birth defect.

    RIP Jeff

    Only 41 and gone forever, I didn't know he'd fought cancer all his life, either.

    What a tragedy.

    'Angel Eyes' was me and my first girlfriend's song.

    Bye Jeff.
