Guitar keeps rock legend feeling young
Grammy-award winning musician JJ Cale has claimed that even at the age of 70, he still feels young when he picks up his electric guitar.
The rock star, who wrote some of Lynyrd Skynyrd's and Eric Clapton's most famous hits, suggested to the Los Angeles Times that the music instrument helps him to role back the years despite his arthritis, poor hearing and poor eyesight.
"When I sit down and play the guitar, I'm 20 years old again," he told the publication. "I have as much enthusiasm as I always did. Making the music picks up your day."
Among Cale's most famous songs are After Midnight - which appeared on the eponymous album Eric Clapton - and Call Me The Breeze, which has been covered by numerous acts from Lynyrd Skynyrd through to Johnny Cash.
He won his best contemporary blues album Grammy in 2006 for his The Road to Escondido collaboration with Clapton.Posted on 24 Feb 2009 11:52 to category : Band / Celebrity News
