Musician JJ Cale, whose songs Cocaine and After Midnight were made famous by Eric Clapton, died yesterday after suffering a heart attack at the age of 74.

While his contemporaries considered him a legend, fans weren’t familiar with his name.

Lynyrd Skynyrd made Cale’s song Call Me The Breeze famous.

He won a Grammy for his 2006 album with Clapton, called The Road to Escondido.

Cale passed away at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, California.
