Formed with seasoned British drummer Ginger Baker and guitar god Eric Clapton, Cream was a monster three-piece that lasted from 1966 to 1968. In their short time, Cream used their fusion of heavy blues and Jazz to create some of the greatest hard rock stables.
These include “White Room,” “I Feel Free,” “Sunshine of Your Love,” and their cover of the Robert Johnson classic “Crossroads.” Decades later, the group would reunite for a few tours. They continue to be praised by hard rock fans to this day.
Jack Bruce would work with various other icons in his years before and after Cream. Along with Clapton, He played with John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers. After Cream, He played on Frank Zappa’s “Apostrophe” and Lou Reed’s “Berlin” albums.
He also worked with members of Mountain, Mitch Mitchell of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and The Rolling Stones’s Mick Taylor. He released several solo albums of various genres, including “Silver Rails” which he released this year.
Good vibes to all of his friends and family. Let us all remember the great art that he had given us and had inspired others to do the same.
