Jeff Healey: Forum, Inglewood, Calif. (November 1990)

healey 2By Scott Goldfine

Singer-guitarist Jeff Healey began a two-nighter as opening act in L.A. Sunday night with a rousing 40-minute set of electrified blues-rock. The blind, laptop-style player ripped through such favorites as “See the Light” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” Healey is a delight, but he was somewhat overwhelmed by the vast Forum.

Blues-boogie trio ZZ Top closed the show with a stunning 90-minute performance.
