    Musician JJ Cale, whose songs "Cocaine" and "After Midnight" were made famous by Eric Clapton, died Friday after suffering a heart attack. His contemporaries considered him a legend, even if most fans weren't familiar with his name.

    He was 74.

    A musical genius who shunned the spotlight. Loved his work. RIP.

    The man deserves a spotlight of his own on his song:



    So many great songs.

    RIP

    RIP. Reading about him now, makes me realize how freakin' stupid I am about some aspects of music. Had no idea he wrote those Clapton songs. Duh.

    He also wrote "Call Me the Breeze", made popular by Skynyrd.

    RIP.
