R.I.P. Jack Bruce

For many of us, just the mention of the name Jack Bruce makes the ten note bass line of “Sunshine of Your Love” play in one’s head. The bass player/singer made up a third of the band Cream, along with Eric Clapton and drummer Ginger Baker, and co-wrote many of their songs with Clapton. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. After Cream disbanded in 1968, Bruce had a successful solo career and collaborated with many other musicians.

Jack Bruce never retired, and released a studio album titled Silver Rails in 2014. Bruce passed away today at his home in Suffolk, reportedly from liver disease. He was 71.
