JJ Cale Dead Of Heart Attack

The legendary American Singer / Songwriter, JJ Cale, died on Friday 26 July of a heart attack at Scripps Hospital in La Jolla, California. The news was reported on his management company's website and on the musician's Facebook page.
JJ Cale (John W. Cale) was born on 5 December 1938, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. A nightclub owner in California who was employing Cale in the mid-1960’s came up with the “JJ” moniker to avoid confusion with the Velvet Underground’s John Cale.
