Sad news just announced. Jack Bruce, bass guitarist of Legendary Band Cream died earlier today.

Jack, along with fellow band members Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker where the first " Super Group" back in the mid-60's. One of my all time best.

R.I.P. Jack

Sorry to hear that. Indeed the first power trio. I was thinking about a thread on the power trio and Cream was first on the list.


Here Jack Bruce is featured on a Gov't Mule song. This whole album was dedicated to the Allen Woody who was the bass player for the Mule, a band that started as a power trio in the same tradition as Cream for sure.

Very sad news


He was a great inspiration when I was a young aspiring Bass player.

I have a gig tonight and we cover 'Sunshine of your love', so I will remember him tonight with sadness in my heart, but joy in my soul.

RIP Jack, you were a genuine legend of the rock and blues world.

Ahh, fresh cream. Definitely Trail Blazer of a band.


They provided a heavy yet technically proficient musical theme that foreshadowed and influenced the emergence of British bands such as Led Zeppelin, The Jeff Beck Group and Black Sabbath in the late 1960s and the early 1970s.

Hmmm..., doing some math.

Considering that from the 60's to 80's was when the best rock cames out, and the average age of those musicians.

Expect heaven to be better than ever in the following years.

It's sad watching them all go. The timelessness of their music keeps them forever young in my mind.

Yes, it's sad. Our memories are linked to them, a piece of us died today too.

Definitely one of the greats. I have a bunch of Cream in my playlists. Utterly timeless stuff.
I love this live track of Spoonful.

Thank you all for your great comments on this thread.



Cream where only together as a band for just 2 years ( 1966-68 ) but during that time, they produced some of the greatest music recorded.

Oh man that sucks, he was one of the best bass players ever.

Our band recently decided to do Crossroads. While learning the song I listened to some of the live versions and Jack is just insane on some of those performances. It's like watching controlled chaos when Ginger and Jack are hooked up. Such is the case on this vid.

Godspeed Jack

The BBC did a documentary on Eric Clapton in which there is a little vignette of Bruce and Clapton playing together in Clapton's backyard. I think Bruce, at the time had been trying to organize some kind of reunion situation with Clapton and Clapton was a little wary about the whole thing. They really start getting into it at around 03:30.



Great player. He'll be missed.

Awwwww, RIP Jack. Good journey.
Always sad to lose a good musician and a legend at that.

Very sad news, a great bass player from a great band. Up there with Rick Danko as one of my favourite singing bassists.

I find it hard to believe that Ginger has out lasted Jack. He's an absolute wild man. Check out the "Beware of Mr. Baker" doco if you haven't seen it. Gives you some interesting insights into one of Rock musics most eccentric characters.

RIP Jack
