actually JJ Cale's version is pretty damn smooth, man.

he also wrote "After Midnight" which was also a hit for Clapton. Cale's version is the chillest song ever written. I actually prefer it over Clapton's version

he wrote a couple other songs that were hits for others (Call me the Breeze was covered by racist rednecks Lynyrd Skynrd) but never achieved real stardom on his own. his music is fucking great though.

I thought he was still alive but turns out he died in 2013. I didn't even realize... damn.

yeah, it's my favorite Skynyrd song. I'm not much of a Skynyrd fan though.

Didn't they all like, die, and shit?

Like in a plane crash, or something?

That's how all them musicians bite the bucket. In small aircrafts or in bathtubs. It's fate accomplishment. Oh, sure, some use choppers and sailboats, but they are the more creative ones. I think it's in their contracts. I think McCartney welched on his deal, and that's why his music got so stupid in the 70s. It's an ego thing...they actually get better after they are dead. Look at Billy Ray Vaughn. Marginal guitar player until he faceplants into a hillside in a Huey. Bingo, immortal legend.
