I heard on the radio yesterday that the legendary songwriter J.J. Cale passed away at the age of 74. I just wanted to mention this, because he was a major contributor to Tulsa sound and the story of American rock. He wrote two of my three favorite songs of all time, "Call Me the Breeze" and "Cocaine". I always wanted to hear him play live, but at least I was fortunate enough to have heard Eric Clapton and Lynyrd Skynyrd cover his material. Anyway, wherever he is now, I know he is strummin' his Gibson.
