retail news in context, analysis with attitude

JJ Cale, the singer, songwriter and musician who wrote "After Midnight" and "Cocaine," who had his songs recorded by everyone from Eric Clapton to Johnny Cash to Lynyrd Skynyrd to the Band to Tom Petty, died Friday of a heart attack. He was 74.
KC's View:
If you've never listen to "The Road To Escondido," the album by Clapton and Cale that won a Grammy in 2007, you should. Listening to it right now. Great stuff.
