British rock legend Ian Gillan and former Cream bass player Jack Bruce will join JEFF HEALEY's backing band to pay tribute to the late blind bluesman in Canada this weekend (11-12Apr08).
Healey's band, the Jazz Wizards, will support a host of top names at the Toronto memorial for Healey, who lost his battle with cancer on 2 March (08).
A second event, on 4 May (08), will celebrate Healey's love of jazz music.
Proceeds from both shows will go to the Daisy's Eye Cancer Fund, which aids families of children with retinoblastoma - the rare cancer that claimed Healey's sight when he was one year old.
