    It was the final story on CBS Evening News last night. I was surprised he was nicely acknowledged by the media.
    They did a right respectful job but I felt like they'd mentioned Eric fucking Clapton too many times.
    NYTimes ain't even done an obit yet.

    J J Cale's solo albums are works of excellence in artistry and everyone should own at least 3.
    Of each.

    The [FONT=inherit !important][FONT=inherit !important]songwriter[/FONT][/FONT] JJ Cale, who wrote the [FONT=inherit !important][FONT=inherit !important]Eric [FONT=inherit !important]Clapton[/FONT] [/FONT]hits Cocaine and After Midnight, has died of a heart attack, his management said. He was 74. [/FONT]

    Born John Weldon Cale in Oklahoma, in 1938, Cale helped create the Tulsa Sound combining blues, rockabilly, and country, and he released 14 albums in a career that spanned 30 years.
    Cale took the stage name JJ to avoid confusion with the Velvet Underground's John Cale and achieved fame in 1970, when Eric Clapton covered his song After Midnight.
    His song Cocaine became a hit for Clapton in 1977, and the two would later collaborate on Clapton's Grammy award-winning album The Road to Escondido in 2006.

    Back in the day in Tulsa when Leon Russell was setting up the Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour to bail Joe Cocker out of his financial difficulties, he'd pull two flatbed trailers out to Mohawk park as a stage and play for free.

    treat! The man was brilliant and one of my favorites..he will be missed.
