    Perhaps the greatest guitarist Canada ever produced is gone, a victim of cancer, age 41.

    That's sad.

    Used to listen to his radio programme from time to time.

    RIP

    The only part of Road House that didn't suck majestically. The guy was pretty amazing. RIP.

    I disagree 100 percent....

    Road House is an American Classic.

    I mean what really do you want from an action flick?

    This has it all -- violence, good fight sequences, enough T&A to nullify any attempts at mushy love story, guys getting throats ripped out, bar room brawls and enough witty one liners to make you laugh.

    "Damn that hurts doesn't it...."

    "A polar bear fell on me....."

    "What if they call my momma a whore?"
    "Is she?"


    "What am I supposed to do?"
    "There is always barber college."

    I am ashamed in that all I can come up with for Healey was Angel Eyes, his one top 40 hit.

    Road House is like Jason and the Argonauts set in the midwest in a really awkward part lying in between the '80s and '90s.

    Oh man that sucks. Saw him open for Bon Jovi (shut up!) in 1993. Put on a blistering show.

    "Angel Eyes" is one of the great ballads of the time.

    Had no idea he was sick. RIP.
