RIP to Cream bassist Jack Bruce

So long to one third of the greatest British trios in rock history.  Over the years Eric Clapton permitted the idea to build that he was the whole show.  But although Jack Bruce did not have anything like the solo success that Clapton did, it was Bruce's adventurousness that made Cream more than just a loud blues revival band.  "Onstage Cream was a jazz band," he once said. "We just didn't tell Eric."
