Now he has an angel's eyes

Jeff Healey, the blind blues/rock guitarist and singer who fought cancer for most of his life, has died at age 41.

Healey was a rare talent – a self-taught guitarist who drew accolades from such legends as George Harrison, B.B. King and Stevie Ray Vaughan – and he was a joy to watch and hear.

The video below, a concert performance of his hit “Angel Eyes,” was shot in 1989 in Germany, when Healey was just 22 years old.

Rest in peace, Jeff.
