Re: Album Oriented Rock (AOR)--A dying radio format.
Back in '80-81 I had a roommate who was a big JJ Cale fan and introduced me to him. Reading an interview with him after hearing about his death, he came across as a much more normal person than I expected. He said something to the effect that he decided to focus on songwriting because it paid well, and he wasn't going to make it as a guitarist.
