Jack Bruce Dead Liver DiseaseJack Bruce is dead. The legendary bassist and vocalist of Cream and other acts such as West, Bruce & Laing, died today at the age of 71 due to liver disease.

I can truthfully say that because of Jack the legendary Cream members Jack Bruce, Eric Clapton and Ginger my life has changed. I specifically remember when I was 16 years old and over at my friend’s house listening to records. And then he played “Sunshine of your Love”, the Royal Albert Hall gig. I was blown away, I didn’t know what just happened. But I knew that this is the music I wanted to play. This was it. I bought all Cream albums and to this day, there are among my favorite treasures in my collection.

Jack Bruce was a brilliant song-writer, vocalist and bassist. He died to young.

Thank you for everything, Mr. Jack Bruce – you changed everything for me!
