Eric Clapton has called John Cale his "favorite person" (in the documentary To Tulsa and Back: On Tour with J.J. Cale, 2005). Cale is the songwriter behind Clapton's hits "Cocaine" and "After Midnight". A native of Oklahoma, Cale grew up in Tulsa in a musical culture of blues, western swing, and country. He played as a back-up musician at the historic Cain's Ballroom (best known as a favorite venue of the Wills brothers in the heyday of western swing) before heading out to California with Leon Russell and other Tulsa musicians. He is a driving force in the creation of the "Tulsa sound" which heavily influenced Clapton and the course of rock and roll in the 60's and 70's. Why isn't this man better known?

But Cale's influence wasn't only through songwriting — his distinctly loping sense of rhythm and shuffling boogie became the blueprint for the adult-oriented roots rock of Clapton and Mark Knopfler, among others. Cale's refusal to vary the sound of his music over the course of his career...
