Musician JJ Cale Dead at 74
July 27, 2013 Remembered
Cale's manager Mike Kappus told the Associated Press the singer/songwriter died Friday night of a heart attack at Scripps Hospital in La Jolla.
The Oklahoma City native's album with Eric Clapton, "The Road to Escondido," won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album in 2007.
In 2006, Cale told the AP, "I'd probably be selling shoes today if it wasn't for Eric."
Cale's other hit songs include Clapton's "Cocaine," "Travelin' Light" and " "I'll Make Love to You Anytime."
