|The Breeze: An Appreciation of JJ Cale|
Cale died suddenly last year after a heart attack on July 26, 2013. He was 74 years old.
On July 29, 2014, Eric Clapton & Friends will celebrate Cale's musical career in a tribute featuring Cale's songs performed by Slowhand himself and friends including, among others, John Mayer, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty, and Mark Knopfler: The Breeze: An Appreciation of JJ Cale.
|John Mayer: One of the "Friends"|
If my readers have paid any attention at all to my blog or books, they already know the formal single father and current legendary rock 'n' roll guitarist is among my most appreciated musicians. I always look forward to Clapton's new music and this one is particularly special due to the subject matter.
|The Man in Black also covered "Call Me The Breeze"|
I've already listened to Clapton's cover of "Call Me The Breeze," which FM radio stations will start to play very soon. I've also pre-ordered my copy of The Breeze: An Appreciation of JJ Cale. Do yourself a favor; click the link to order yours, too.
