Roll On J. J.

This past week J. J. Cale released his new CD "Roll On." For those of you who know his work, nothing really needs to be said except "check it out here." For those of you who don't recognize his name, two of Eric Clapton's biggest hits, After Midnight and Cocaine are Cale songs.

Cale turned 70 this year; he was a late-bloomer in the music business, beginning when he was 30. To hear an interview on NPR with Melissa Block on a veteran songwriter's 'old man' music, click here.

And if you want to see old Mr. Cale in action with support from old Mr. Clapton, check out this YouTube video:

Okay, let me try this again. My original post had too many errors, and I couldn't figure out how to correct it once posted!

What I said is this: It is amazing what one can learn on revJohn's blog. I love Clapton but had never heard of JJ Cale. I stand alightened!
