Clapton's "Call Me The Breeze" Impacting AAA, Mainstream Rock & Classic Rock Radio

Published // 16.May.14

Eric Clapton has often said that JJ Cale is one of the single most important figures in rock history, a sentiment echoed by many fellow musicians. Cale’s influence on Clapton was profound, and his influence on many of today’s artists cannot be overstated. To honor Cales's legacy, Clapton gathered a group of like-minded friends and musicians for "Eric Clapton & Friends: The Breeze, An Appreciation of JJ Cale", due out July 29th. The first single - "Call Me The Breeze" - has been released to AAA, Mainstream Rock and Classic Rock radio formats. EC handles the track's vocals and is joined on guitar by Albert Lee. Tune into your favorite radio station to check it out!

"The Breeze, An Appreciation of JJ Cale" is available for pre-order here.
