coincidences and music trivia
So tonight I'm watching the voice, and Barrett
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Tj2xslr0Yc
is in a battle with a blind guitar player and singer by the name of "Blind Joe".
Barrett had performed the Jeff Healey song "angel eyes" in his blind audition, and I picked up on the odd coincidence that he was now fighting to stay on the show against another blind guitar playing musician.
Took me back to the movie "Roadhouse", a Patrick Swayze movie that Jeff Healey had appeared in and performed the soundtrack before.
I knew that Healey had lost his battle with cancer, as had Swayze.
Dang internet.
I trip over to Jeff Healey's site and find this little tidbit. Musicians sure have a good time.
Healey had played a set with Buddy Miles in a small venue Smile

Buddy passed away 4 days before Jeff. I don't put any special importance on these coincidences, but I do find them interesting when they seem to tie unrelated things together. Or lead me off on a few hours wasted in google. ( I did listen to music along the way Big Grin )

I'm not taking the bait there. No way. <stepping away from the computer>
