Recommended Reading Week: Get the Best Seat in the House with the Jeff Healey Band

The Jeff Healey Band was mythical: a blind singer and guitar player known for being one of the best blues men ever. Tom Stephen, the band’s drummer, played double duty, also managing the band and having to both perform like a beast while keeping the other musicians in line.

In his book The Best Seat in the House: My Life in the Jeff Healey Band, Stephen pulls back the curtain to discuss his 15 years with Healey, including an epic bowling showdown with ZZ Top, visiting the Clinton White House and a series of meetings with other legends, including Bob Dylan, George Harrison and Keith Richards.

Best Seat in the House: My Life in the Jeff Healey Band is available here.
