My kids know him from his part in Roadhouse. They think he's way cool from that, of course. And he most certainly was.

That was the first time I came across him, too. I was totally astonished at the way he played - I'd never seen anything like it before, and of course he played a CCR song too, which instantly put him on my list of guitar heroes. The music world's lost another great talent.

RIP Jeff.

I've been listening to him since... it seems like forever.

He will be missed.

Sad news. He was so young too. That's a darn shame it is. :(

Just found this link to a great video of Jeff and his band at Montreux in 1999, posted over on Big Road Blues:
