Cocaine


As a die-hard Cale-Fan the decision is easy here. There is nothing like the grand old man.

@Frank Eric probably never saw cocaine in his life. JJ Cale all the way!!!

All credits to JJ Cale for this great song. But if I have to choose, difficult indeed, I go for Eric Clapton. Fantastic guitar work and he's singing right from the heart.

Sorry to upset Tim Kurikka, but, from what a close mutual friend tells me, one of the reasons Cale doesn't fly too often is because he can't go so long without a cigarette - so figure that! I think, when they were younger, Clapton had the deeper voice. Now they have aged, there's probably less difference - take a listen to their joint album "The Road to Escondido" ...

I don't like this site anymore coz they made me think too hard. I love both J.J.Cale and the Slowhand, but has anyone noticed thay are in different keys, probably thanks to Erics smokin' reduced singingability LOL! Bad site, bad site, not fair grumble, grumble...

How can J.J. Cale be ahead? Usually I'd go for the original of any song, but Clapton simply left him in the dust. Sorry, Cale fans, but you know it's true.
