John Cale was born 9 March 1942 in Garnant in the heavily industrial Amman Valley of Wales to Will Cale and Margaret Davies. His mother was a primary school teacher and his father was a coal miner. Although Will only spoke English, Margaret raised John to speak only Welsh, largely due to the influence of her mother.
