Throwback Video: J.J. Cale and Eric Clapton (Live) – “After Midnight”

In 2004, J.J. Cale and Eric Clapton performed “After Midnight” live at the Crossroads Guitar Festival. Check out the video below.

Written and released by J.J. Cale in 1966, “After Midnight” became a hit when Clapton recorded and released his cover of the song in 1970.

“I was dirt poor, not making enough to eat and I wasn’t a young man. I was in my thirties, so I was very happy. It was nice to make some money,” Cale told Mojo magazine of hearing Clapton’s version on the radio for the first time.
