Jeff Healey was born in Toronto Ontario in 1966. He started playing guitar at the age of three and at 17 he got a band together Blue Direction. Soon after he met Joe Rockman (bass) and Tom Stephen (drums) they formed a trio The Jeff Healey Band. In 1988 they cut the album "See The Light". I went to see him on his first tour of England .. he was unbelievable .. the band were incredibly tight and they ripped the lid off the Rock City in Nottingham. The venue was packed solid with folk climbing on tables just trying to see him play.
