One of my musical heroes. I got practically all of his albums on vinyl, and most of them again on CD. Never saw him live though.

Last night, my friend Dan Walsh was playing in Campbellford, not too far from where I live, so I decided to go up and see him. He played CRAZY MAMA and AFTER MIDNIGHT and during the break, we sat and talked about how much we admired JJ Cale. I told him how I had bought myself a wahwah pedal and made a slide after hearing CRAZY MAMA in 1970.
I received an email from Dan this morning with the sad news about Mr. Cale.
I can see the raccoon staring back at me from that old album cover from where I`m sitting right now.

I am completely bummed out...

J.J. Cale has always been a musician's musician and one hell of great song writer...

R.I.P., J.J.

Ditto all. I wondered why there was a sudden spate of posts of his songs on Facebook.

RIP and thanks.

I've been listening to a bit of his stuff again the last day or so.

By all accounts he was something of a perfectionist, obsessive almost, yet he managed to make most of his records sound like they'd been casually laid down between bouts of balls-scratching and slurps from a glass of something tasty.

Lovely music.

Yes and that customised Harmony guitar was something special.

I still enjoy J.J. Cale's work. His early records were extremely influential, most notably on Mark Knopfler for the laconic vocal delivery, and of course Eric Clapton, who made whole LPs trying to capture the Tulsa sound. RIP.

Listening tonight via You Tube to a lot of his tunes that were never released until lately (as far as I know). Some seem "out of character" but well within character. Thanks JJ.
