Another one bites the dust

The Associated Press is reporting the death of Canadian guitarist, Jeff Healey. Known for his unsual laptop style for playing the guitar, Healey died from cancer at the age of 41 in a Toronto hospital Sunday. Healey had battled cancer since age 1, when a rare form of retinal cancer known as Retinoblastoma claimed his eyesight, says the AP.

This loss is especially heavy as Healey was the linchpin in Rock Club's efforts to put together the first ever physically challenged supergroup, Rock-Ability™. Other members under consideration included Def Leppard drummer, Rick Allen, Stevie Wonder, Violinist Itzhak Perlman, Soul singer Teddy Pendergrass, and Country star Mel Tillis. Jose Feliciano is now next in line to replace Mr. Healey, R.I.P.

Maybe we can invite this guy to join the supergroup:

Rock-Ability is my now my favorite band name.

Who's the next rock star to kick the bucket? Hasn't Scott Weiland been at that top of the list for years? Or has Amy Winehouse and Brittney bumped him from the top spot?
