He wrote an autobiography a few years ago, and I will have to buy it.
That group was something else, not least the fact that Bruce and drummer Ginger Baker did NOT get along. Hell, I am sugarcoating it--they HATED each other with a passion. The feud allegedly went on for decades, across continents. They even hated each other despite the fact Baker was living in South Africa (tax reasons) and Bruce was in Britain. Poor old Eric Clapton had to run interference and try to be a peacemaker during the Cream days.
It wasn't surprising the group last only a few years. I should revise that to say it is a miracle the group lasted as long as it did.
Bruce had battled ill health and drug addiction over the years.
Born to musical parents in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1943, Bruce played in various dance bands and jazz groups before joining the Graham Bond Organization in 1962, where he met drummer Ginger Baker. He later joined John Mayall's Blues Breakers and met guitarist Eric Clapton, leading to the formation of Cream.
Bruce went on to record solo albums and front bands, releasing more than a dozen solo LPs over the next four decades, including his latest, "Silver Rails," in March. Cream reunited briefly in 1993 for the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
However, Baker's official fan page did note Bruce's passing and made some nice remarks, so perhaps the feud might have been exaggerated a bit.
