    JJ Cale

    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 JJCale.com, 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,
    donations can be made to your favorite local animal shelter.

    Bummer. I had always hoped to see him perform but never did get the chance.

    Just to note.......he was 74.

    Oh no! Always loved his "After Midnight", more than Clapton's cover (Clapton's cover is good, but has a whole different mood to it). Clapton must be devastated. JJ was a hero to him.

    RIP JJ.

    I was able to see him, circa 1980, in of all places, an enlisted club on a submarine base in San Diego (the place was bigger than one would think). Great show.

    He was so talented. Gotta agree...loved his cover of After Midnight. RIP JJ. You made a lot of people happy.

    I mean, they say you die twice.
    One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time.

    What a bummer, he was an extraordinarily talented songwriter.
