These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For

J. J. Cale, a musician and songwriter whose blues-inflected rock influenced some of the genre’s biggest names and whose songs were recorded by Eric Clapton and Johnny Cash among others, died on Friday in La Jolla, Calif. He was 74.

Cale was best known as the writer of “Cocaine” and “After Midnight.”

A multi-instrumentalist, Mr. Cale often played all of the parts on his albums, also recording and mixing them himself.  He is also credited as one of the architects of the 1970s Tulsa sound, a blend of rockabilly, blues, country and rock that came to influence Neil Young and Brian Ferry, among others.
