Jeff Healey

He played his guitar on his lap, but instead of slide or steel, he fretted with his fingers. Jeff died at the age of 41. You can read about him here, and see several videos on YouTube.
Jeff was featured in Roadhouse, the 1989 Patrick Swayze movie. The movie is lightweight, but it's fun to watch on Saturday afternoon before taking a nap.
I didn't know it until today, but Jeff also gave his name Jeff Healey's Roadhouse, a rock, blues and jazz club in Toronto.
