ABOUT JEFF GOLUB:
Dynamic contemporary jazz guitarist Jeff Golub, who called New York City home for more than 3 decades, released 11 solo albums as well as 3 CD’s as the leader of the instrumental band Avenue Blue. His most recent releases include 2011’s blues CD, “The Three Kings” with the Jeff Golub Band and featuring Henry Butler on vocals and keyboard and 2013’s “Train Keeps A Rolling” with Brian Auger. The contemporary jazz and blues guitarist is also well known for his work with Billy Squier as well as Rod Stewart, performing with Stewart on four albums and five world tours.
Although losing his sight in 2011, Jeff continued to perform through 2013 and then began to experience a rapid decline. This past October, doctors discovered Golub was suffering from Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), a degenerative brain disease that has no cure. PSP is untreatable and aggressive. Over the last year, the disease began to adversely affect Jeff’s balance, speech, and control of his body.
Sadly, on January 1st Jeff Golub passed away at the age of 59, surrounded by his loving family.
