Music Monday: Happy Birthday JJ Cale

by Scott Lydon


Happy Music Monday! JJ Cale is one of those artists that is all but invisible by name, but has somehow overlapped all the major rock figures. Today Scott's gathered five songs that JJ Cale had a hand in writing. You've certainly heard his work before, even if you don't yet know you have.

This ode to the troubles of the rock star drug is best known as an Eric Clapton song. But before it belonged to him, it belonged to JJ Cale. Just goes to show. Cocaine isn't the monogamous sort.

Oh, but that's not all! More JJ Cale songs to come.

You can also hover over the pics for image attribution information!

This picture is what I imagine that rich people's houses look like.

Oh yeah, and everything we find down there is going home with some lucky Wooters. Want to get in on the bunker booty? Keep reading!
