This made my bone marrow resonate when I heard it for the first time: spontaneous, ground breaking, that drumming, the guitars.  In '67 it was music from Mars and it still sounds fresh.   QJ was right, it was THE band but wrong in that it wasn't EC's band.  I saw them in 2005 on the Thursday at the Albert Hall.  Astonishing.  Bruce when asked if they had rehearsed - given the performance it would be hard to believe they hadn't - confirmed they had, and for some time.  By way of explanation he went on "We didn't want to be a tribute band to ourselves." A near perfect description of my insecurity as I handed over overs to a tout to get my tickets.  An insight on the night was to start to understand why they broke up: Clapton gets the adulation, Bruce probably deserves the adulation, or at least more of it than Clapton, he is fabulous bassist and lead singer and wrote most of the songs.   But the guy they both defer to is the man at the back.  On the night I could see the dynamic was never likely to endure. More Cream please as someone remarked a week or three ago.

He certainly didn't have anything nice to say about Paul & Ringo, or MJ for that matter!
Then there's the Marlon Brando stuff; eek!

This makes me chuckle in light of the recent Quincey Jones interview in which he said the one 'rock group' he liked was 'That group Clapton had'. "Cream?" "Yeah, they could play."
Boy I'd like to buy that guy a beer and listen to him talk.

Good question, iloveradio...and I wonder if BillG has any input/thoughts/opinions/fears associated with NN....

I remember way back in like 06/07 when the hot topic was the royalty increase, and BillG did explain the impacts to RP then.  Just hope those F#$%ers in DC don't screw with a good thing more than they have.  Long Live RP!!

10!

One of the reason RP kicks ass is that BillG plays the popular classic rock tunes without apologies (and I'm sure to the chagrin of many) - and intermixed with new music and other old music that didn't get the airplay like this Cream classic did/does.  And as I look back on youth (80s and early 90s) I have to say Cream was the band that really got me hooked on both great musicians (Eric, Ginger and Jack ROCKED) and the psychedelic culture in general.  Call them my "Gateway Band" ... and then the floodgates opened as I heard the great albums from Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, etc., etc., etc.  So, to that power trio from England, I say THANK YOU!  And to BillG I say LONG LIVE RP!!

That was true in the 1960s and '70s - not so much these days - but "she was like a bearded rainbow"?
