J.J. Cale has died from a heart attack at the age of 74.

The death of the legendary Grammy Award winning singer songwriter was announced on his Facebook page today.

“We’ve lost a great artist and a great person tonight. JJ Cale passed away at 8:00 pm on Friday July 26 at Scripps Hospital in La Jolla, CA. He had suffered a heart attack. There are no immediate plans for services. His history is well documented at JJCale.com , http://www.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 donations to your favorite local animal shelter”.

J.J. Cale was best known for the songs ‘After Midnight’ and ‘Cocaine’, covered by Eric Clapton as well as ‘Crazy Mama’ and ‘Call Me The Breeze’.

Born John Weldon Cale in 1938, Cale recorded 14 studio albums as well as his collaboration album with Clapton ‘The Road To Escondido’.

His last released recording was the song ‘Angel’ on Clapton’s recent ‘Old Sock’ album.

How bizarre. A few days earlier a hoax death report went around the world on the internet and now he passed away for real? RIP JJ.

RIP J.J. Cale......what meant a lot to me about interviewing J.J. Cale was that he was not a fan of doing interviews, didn't enjoy spending a lot of time talking about himself but instead preferred actual conversations with people. So, that is how I approached my time with him. J.J. loved bluegrass music, played the banjo and even had Uncle Josh Graves and Vassar Clements play on his album in the 1970s. He was from Tulsa and I told him about Sally Ann Forester who played in Bill Monroe's band in the 1940s, including fior three months alongside Earl Scruggs, and how she was from Oklahoma and became enamored with music by her uncle taking her to see Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys at Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa.... and he loved hearing about that connection between Monroe and Wills. At the end of the interview...and I have it on tape...he thanked me for doing a good interview and keeping it a conversation, and I have always considered it a true badge of honor. Here is the interview;

My God.

Here I am listening to the JJ Cale performance from 7/7/04 that I just vined a week or so ago and I just went to the ABB site and the AG just to look at the new posts.

This is such a shock. I love JJ and have been a huge fan of his guitar style. He had a unique and unmistakable tone. This really hurts ....

All my music listening the rest of this weekend is going to be JJ.

Damn it ...

RIP JJ Cale

Seeing JJ live has been on my "bucket List". I never had much hope of seeing him since he has not ventured very far from California in a long time.

I only saw him once back in 1986 or 1987 and sadly, I was not able to stay for the entire show. Just the first set.

It wasn't enough. He was great...

Eric Clapton must be very sad today. Thanks for posting, I had no idea. The Road to Escondido with Clapton is a great record, love it.

RIP and thank you for the music. Once I got bored with the standard classic rock he was one of the first guys I got into because of the people who covered his songs.

I was lucky enough to see JJ twice , in the late seventies with the Ozark Mountain Daredevils and NRPS , then in the early eighties with John Hammond , I never go very long without some JJ Cale .

This one is hitting me pretty hard. And, kind of freakin' me out a little.

JJ's been on my mind a LOT the last month or so.

I've brought up his name in at least 10 random conversations (each time something about him just happened to fit the flow of the conversation) in the last 2 weeks.

At my band's rehearsal last week, we started work on a new song...after a couple of run through's I suggested "Let's play it with more of a JJ Cale feel"...lo & behold that's what the song needed.

Monday at work in a rarely used desk drawer, I found the CD-Rs I made of my album collection of his about 5 yrs ago..I have no recollection of putting them there (or even taking them to work in the first place).

It was like I was being warned of his pending passing. I'm a little freaked out that I was chosen to be forewarned, even if I didn't pick up on the definite reason he was so prominent in my mind.

Thanks for sharing that interview/conversation Derek!

RIP JJ. You'll be missed. Thanks for leaving behind such a large catalogue of material for us to listen to.
