JJ Cale moved to Valley Center in Escondido in 1989. He and his wife Christine Lakeland own a house on three acres of land.
Cale songs such as “Cocaine” and “After Midnight” have been huge hits for Eric Clapton, who he met in 1975 and then again in 2004.
In August 2005, Clapton spent a week visiting Cale in Escondido, helping him put together the album The Road to Escondido. The album contains one of the last recordings by the late Billy Preston.
Clapton’s 2013 studio album Old Sock includes Cale’s backing vocals and guitar on the track “Angel.”
