Eric Clapton released a clip from his J.J. Cale tribute album…
Eric Clapton has released a lyric video for “Call Me The Breeze”, the lead single from an upcoming tribute album of the same name the guitarist has organized to honor one of his musical mentors, J.J. Cale.
Due July 29, “Eric Clapton & Friends: The Breeze, An Appreciation of JJ Cale”, features a collection of 16 Cale tunes revisited by Clapton, Mark Knopfler, John Mayer, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty, Derek Trucks and Don White.
“I would like people to tap into what JJ Cale did – that’s the point,” said Clapton. “I’m just the messenger; I’ve always felt that that’s my job. I try to interpret things so that the public at large, or at least the people who listen to what I do, will become intrigued about where I got it from.”
