It seems a visitor to this blog, thinks its a lie to say that eric clapton wrote cocaine. He wanted to set the record straight:
"The song cocaine was written and originally recorded by Oklahoma blues guitarist J.J. Cale. eric clapton recorded his version a year after Cale's was released."
eric clapton has recorded several songs written by Cale, including "After Midnight" and "Travelin' Light." In 2006, eric clapton and Cale recorded an album together called The Road To Escondido.
Cocaine is a song written by Oklahoma singer-songwriter J. J. Cale, and most notably covered by Eric Clapton on his 1977 album Slowhand.
This person sure know his cocaine. I think he was in the music business. Go figure.
He added: "Greatful Dead also had a cocaine song, that sold over a million records."
My oh my, it is such a pity and waste of life, that cocaine got transfered into the psyche of a whole generation. Most people in that generation, know all the words to the songs as well. Why do they know the words to drugs and narcotics songs?
I think we are going to get a lesson next about the doobie brothers and their influence on pot smoking. marijuana aka mary jane. Maybe add to that rick james.
