Singer-songwriter J.J. Cale, who died Friday night at the age of 74, was renowned in the industry for his work as collaborator, most notably with Eric Clapton, Santana and Tom Petty.

If musicians were measured not by the number of records they sold but by the number of peers they influenced, Jj Cale would have been a towering figure in 1970s rock `n' roll.

Cale, the singer-songwriter and producer known as the main architect of the Tulsa Sound, passed away Friday night at Scripps Hospital in La Jolla, Calif. His manager, Mike Kappus, said Cale died of a heart attack. He was 74.

While his best known songs remain in heavy rotation on the radio nearly 40 years later, most folks »
