R.I.P.Jack Bruce

R.I.P. Jack Bruce

I FEEL FREE
 
WHITEROOM - Cream
 
Not only does Scotland have a great upcoming football team, Andy Murray and Robert Burns, but we had one of the great bassists ever and part of one of the greatest bands ever Cream and I am saying that. So sad to hear that JB has passed away at the age of 71.

I was knocked out when I first heard Cream in the sixties and got all their albums immediately on release. Disraeli Gears with it's Martin Sharp Cover is a seminal part of the sixties culture and still one of my favourite albums of all time. I remember having to choose between Best of Cream or the Beatles new album Abbey Road, I choose the Cream. (we could only buy one album a month in these days)

His solo stuff too did not dissappoint and he also teamed up with Robin Trower with some fabulous results.

Great bass and fabulous Vocals. I loved Jack Bruce. What more can I say!.
