Jack Bruce

Posted by purplemary54 on October 26, 2014

Boy, I hate coming back from a break of any sort to this kind of news.  I’m finding it hard to be too sad, though.  Mom’s home, and doing much much better, thank you.  But the news of Jack Bruce’s death makes me ache that much more for his family and friends.  I get to celebrate and coddle my mother a little; they don’t.

Bruce was a talented bass player and performer best known as one-third of Cream.  Cream weren’t really my cup of tea, but there is no denying the skill of all three of these men.  Like his bandmates–Ginger Baker and some guy named Clapton–Bruce’s love of the music is clear in every note.  I like this clip from Cream’s brief reunion because it shows how ageless and easy they made the music seem.  It takes a mountain of ability to make it look this easy.  Bruce, Baker, and Clapton sound like it’s still 1967.

  1. Clapton justifiably got the most accolades, but Jack Bruce was a crucial element in Cream.
