Blues legend and Grammy Award-winning American singer-songwriter JJ Cale died on Friday 26th of July at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla after suffering a heart attack at the age of 74.

The writer of hits such as 'Cocaine', 'After Midnight' and 'Call Me The Breeze', that were made famous by Eric Clapton and Lynyrd Skynyrd, was known for his laid back approach to singing and performing the blues that led to the creation of the Tulsa Sound.

JJ Cale will be forever remembered by his loved ones and blues fans all over the world.

I've never heard his music before personally (outside of Clapton's "Cocaine"), but this is terrible news.

RIP

If this had been some metal-core guy this article would have had 100+ comments. JJ was an incredible songwriter. RIP.
