Legendary musician JJ Cale, best known for writing “Cocaine” and “After Midnight,” both made famous by Eric Clapton, passed away from a heart attack at 74 years old.

Cale’s extensive portfolio consists of 14 albums with a number of songs covered by a wide range of artists. Cale also made considerable contributions to Clapton’s 2006 album The Road to Escondido which went on to win a Grammy in 2008. Throughout his career he wrote songs for an array of artists such as Santana, The Allman Brothers, Johnny Cash and The Band.

While most people have not heard of him, his influence cannot be understated.

JJ Cale Has Passed Away

JJ Cale passed away at 8:00 pm on Friday July 26 at Scripps Hospital in La Jolla, CA. The legendary singer / songwriter had suffered a heart attack.
There are no immediate plans for services. His history is well documented at http://JJCale.com, http://rosebudus.com/cale, and in the documentary, To Tulsa And Back.

Donations are not needed but he was a great lover of animals so, if you like, you can remember him with a donation to your favorite local animal shelter.​

John Hiatt, on his Facebook page:
Just got the news. JJ Cale died last night. Gonna miss his slow boil groovin and spare prose.
He was still doing it so well.
First time I heard " Crazy mama" I hadn't been in Nashville all that long. His voice, that hypnotic groove and then bam! Mac Gayden's
wa-wa slide solo! I don't know, something changed. The center moved. The Tulsa sound had arrived. Thanks for everything JJ Cale.
My emphasis.

Thanks for including that, Jim. When the legends come out and speak of someone like that, you begin to realize how influential, and influenced, musicians/performers are. What a loss.
