Just read on the BBC website about Jack's illness, operation & subsequent complications. I really hope you make a full recovery very soon, Jack; I've been a fan of yours ever since I first heard Disraeli Gears. Love to you & your family.

I remember seeing you in two Cream concerts in Detroit, at the Grande Ballroom. I will always treasure those times, and have enjoyed your songs and talent. Get well soon, I know there is much more music to flow through you.

Two of my dearest and fondest concert memories were seeing you play with Cream and West, Bruce and Laing in Chicago (my hometown). You really KICKED ASS! In my book, you are and will always be the best bass player of all time. I wish you a speedy and painless recovery. And when you're finally up and running, get your ass over here to Brazil and play some BRUCE music.

All the best,

James Caine

Jack --

Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.

I have been a fan for quite some time. I have a vivid memory of being at a high school friend's party, standing on the porch with a lot of noisy people, and finding myself drawn to ignore them and listen to the music playing in the background. "What on Earth is this?" I asked my friend. "It's phenomenal!" It was "I'm So Glad," performed live on the Goodbye album.

From that day on, I was hooked (and saddened to realize that I had missed out on ever seeing the band live). I particularly love the live Cream performances, "As You Said," and "Theme for an Imaginary Western."

I did get a chance to see you perform a number of years back at SOB's in New York City. That was a great gig.

Anyway, I hope you are back on your feet very soon and wish you many years of good health.

Sincerely, Mike Zelenty

Dear Mr. Bruce,

Sorry to hear you have been so ill, and best wishes for a speedy recovery!

I had the pleasure of meeting you 20-some years ago when you were recording "I've Always Wanted to Do This" at the House of Music in West Orange, NJ, and to hear you perform that amazing music several times. You might possibly remember my husband (at that time...so it goes) Julian Robertson, who assisted Stefan Galfas with the engineering. Julian wishes you the best, too.

Please take care and feel better every day--and thanks for all the great music.

Regards, Peggy Richardson

Jack, my friend, this is the first I've heard of your latest battle and I'm glad you're winning this one too! Scared the b-jeeezus out of me though, when I got the press release...

I hope we can meet up again real soon - I've got a new CD that needs your autograph for starters! But I'm really looking forward to getting together and having a good laugh like we do! Have I used my daily quota exclamation points already?

There are geeky toys we'll have to compare too - I've got my old Newton Messsage Pad set up as a web server and put the press release on it along with a link to this site - http://ricardo.is-a-geek.net:8080 . I hope laughing isn't painful at this stage!

I wish you the best, man!

I brought some friends to see you at the Park West concert recently and they have become fans also. My sincere best wishes on a speedy recovery. I hope you are back on your feet soon Jack!

Jack, I'm so glad you're to get well. I dream and fantasize about you doing a Cream reunion to this day. I was fortunate to see one of your shows in Houston back in '89 (with Ginger). You are truly a legend of music and this earth needs you here for a long time to come. Please bless us with more of your music and live for a long, long time.

Jack, you are among my top 5 fave bass players, and I am just a drummer so what do I know? You are strong and a survivor just like Phil Lesh, put on this earth to keep the creative edge and the complex art of singing and playing simultaneously while keeping the posers guessing. It is a craft far few can master. I enjoy all your recordings, seen you a number of times and hope you tour with Cobham again. Take it slow and recover completely. Do not rush it. It will be well worth the wait.

Get really well Jack! You have given me so much pleasure on record and live, and will continue to do so.

I have loved your music since 1971 ('Harmony Row') and your latest 'More Jack...' stands out as one of the very best ('Shadows..' is great too).

My fellow bassist friend Jack -

I was surprised today to hear of your ailment. You are a man of great constitution and of great stature. I'm positive that you'll recover nicely and come out sitting on top of the world. I'll be sending you healing vibrations from across the pond. Your music gives me inspiration. I don't have an EB3 or a Warwick Thumb, but I'll pick up my Danelectro, Fender, and Rickenbacker and finger several notes for you. I do hope you are comforatble and that you recover soon, Jack. No surrender. - John Keen

Jack,

I hope you recover soon and as painlessly as possible, so you can keep on creating great music for us to listen to. I've been a fan since the days of the Cream and hope we'll be able to look back on music you haven't yet created with as much fondness in some future time. Hey, Lance recovered from the big C and won 5 Tours de France, so it's all possible.

cheers, Geary

Jack,

As a devout fan for over 35 years what can I say? The news of your illness hit me like a ton of bricks. But fortunately, September 19th will now take on even added significance for me aside from being my birthday. On that day I got an unexpected gift in the knowledge that this successful transplant has been performed and that you will be around for many years to come...and will continue to bless us all with the gift of your wonderful music.

More Jack Than God is wonderful and now, thank God, there will indeed be more Jack. Have a speedy recovery my dear friend...seems there's a trip to Cuba that needs to be made as soon as you're back on your feet.

All the best.

Larry Dyer

God will provide you with a complete and total healing if you ask Him. Rest, relax and heal! I look forward to reading an interview with you soon where you speak about your recovery and healing.

God bless you Jack. Your music has always moved me. From the Cream stuff where I first discovered you to all of the solo albums that followed, I HAVE THEM ALL! Although I have never had the pleasure of seeing you live (I live in hopes!) You are not only one of the great bass players but your voice is without peer. "Out Into the Fields," "Flying," "Morning Story," "Ships In the Night" and of course "Theme for an Imaginary Western" will live forever. Please get well and bring more great music and live appearances to your fans all over the world. We are all praying for you.

So sorry to hear you are so ill, but now hopefully turned the corner to recovery. Your music has been so important in my life since I was 14 and first heard you sing and play those incredible basslines. That was 36 years ago, a lifetime. Hang on in there dear, stay with us a while longer, so we can enjoy more great music together.

Dear Jack I hadn't logged on to your website for a few weeks now - and was absolutely poleaxed this evening to see first on Ceefax the news about your operation. Please bear with me here: the weird coincidence is that just today at work I was explaining proudly to a young colleague that I got to shake your hand at the City Hall in Newcastle last November and receive your autograph - and felt so excited to have met you, but also relieved that your autograph matched the 'blind' one I'd received about 5 years ago when you played with Gary Moore and Gary Husband at the Cellar Club in South Shields. On that occasion, my CD booklet from 'Cities of the Heart' was returned to me from your (closed) dressing room with your signature added, but the rumour was that the guitar tech was performing the signings!

I love your music, your writing, your voice and adore your playing - every time I listen to or think about your music I feel my soul lift up.

I pray that you recover and are able to spread your enlightened message to more generations.

You are a true inspiration

Love and thoughts

Rob

Jack, I hope you get well very soon. It would be the worse thing in the world for me if you were lost. You are my favorite bass player of all time and I listen to your music at least once a day. Best of luck, man.

Dear Jack,

Just wanted to wish you a speedy recovery. I have enjoyed your music since the Cream days. I too was diagnosed with cancer this past April. It started in the gallbladder and spread to my liver. I have been on chemotherapy since May and am doing well. So I know, in at least some way, what you have been going through. Let me share that my faith in God has helped to see me through this ordeal. I know that I am being held in His hands. Let me encourage you to put your faith in Jesus Christ and you will be secure for eternity. Once again, thank you for all the happiness you have brought to me!

Sounds funny, maybe, but I was playing my copy of Fresh Cream today and flashing back to the many times I have enjoyed "I'm So Glad" et al. Imagine my surprise to learn - today - of your hardships and imminent recovery from a transplant! I'm so glad - indeed! Speedy recovery, Jack. You are an important figure to many and know that our thoughts are with you for a healthy future.

Good luck Jack. We are pulling for you.

Dear Jack and family,

My thoughts and prayers for a full recovery. Your music has always meant so much to me. I was so priveleged to speak with you outside the keswick theatre in PA in july,2002 about your work w/"the Kipster" and w/vernon. And I'll always cherish a long conversation I had w/Kip and his daughter after ur show @BB kings in nyc a year ago , especially about " Her Boyfriend Assesses His Value..." from the "Desire.." album.& how we can't talk ---about.- Jack Bruce, but "around" Jack Bruce....Kip just kept talking and talking and I was luving it because YOU brought out our passion...His daughter told me later that that was Kip's way of thanking me....anyway, God Bless you and your family and we'll always be in the SAFEST PLACE!

I'm very sorry to hear about your current health problem, and I'd like to wish you a speedy recovery. Last saw you summer before last (think it was then) at the Canterbury festival, and it must be said -- I'd go to the ends of the earth to see you play again (even Milton Keynes if I had to). Very best regards to you and your family, and serious, sincere respect! Will sign off now, lest I start ranting on about the state of the music industry at the moment. All the best Jack!

Sincerely yours

Yesterday I found out about your operation. It was such a shock that I could not respond at that time. Fortunately Baby (just loved the way you sang that phrase) you are OK. Just a note to say how much I have enjoyed you and your music. I’ve seen you every time you have preformed in Houston, Texas since 1967 (about 6 times if I remember correctly). I remember the last time I saw you, I took a friend with me who wasn’t familiar with your solo career but he remembered Cream. After the 1st minute of your 1st song he turned to me and said, “WOW” and that went on for the next 2 hours. Love your new album. You have your family around you for support, all your loyal friends praying for you and with the grace of God; you will be back as strong as ever.

Peace be with you Jack.

Dear Jack,

I have been listening to your latest record over the past few weeks and it has really got inside of me. It is an excellent companion to "Shadows" and it contains all the classic ingredients I would expect in one of your albums: The inspired poetry of Pete and of Kip; the marvellous contributions of all the assembled musicians; and above all else your own impassioned playing and singing.

I really believe it contains songs which can already, and rightly be claimed as classics alongside those many, many jewels from your past career...."So They Invented Race"; "Kelly's Blues"; "Ricin.." and "Lost In The City"... (and many others) right up there with the likes of "Jet Set Jewel"; "White Room"; "Theme For An Imaginary Western"; "November Song" and "Dark Heart" and far, far too many other songs to list here.

Whilst I have been listening to it again today, I decide to check out the website. I could not believe what I see. Whilst I am enjoying the end result of such creative music-making...it's own author is only just returning back to health after this dreadful illness....

Well thank God for that. Indeed we must - for I don't think any of us - your fans and admirers - could imagine a world without the music of Jack Bruce continuing to arrive and enrich our lives. I have been listening to your music for so long now that I really can't remember it not featuring in my musical experience.

To think you went so close to the edge is horrifying. God can wait a lot longer before claiming such talent. We need you here to keep amazing us with your passion and soul. We need...well...More Jack...Than God does (if you will forgive the pun).

So please continue to recover - get well and get strong - and then continue to do what you, and we all love best...making great music. We all know that the "Best Is Still To Come"....

And I look forward to so much more of it in the future.

Regards to you and your family,

Howard

Jack,

So thrilled to hear your recovery is coming along: I can only hope that reading the messages of 'get-well-soon'ism in this on-line guest book lifts your spirits, and enables your speedy healing process.

I have been a fan since the days of 'that' band in the late sixties, and have enjoyed everything since, particularly the power trios, (WBL, BLT, BBM).

This forum is a great way for us to direct some of this positive energy back to you.

Feel it. Let it flow through you; slowly at first, building to a fever pitch.

Peace under the oaks...

Kevin

Take it easy and get well soon, Jack!

You have given me such pleasure over the last thirty-five years or so, to say nothing of your utter re-definition of my favorite instrument. You have spoiled me! See you back on the road soon!

Hello Jack,

Hope you are doing better. I just heard about your illness today.

I greatly enjoy your CDs "Harmony Row" and "Songs For A Taylor"--I hope that someday they both will come out on SACD or DVD-Audio, so the world can hear your music in the best possible fidelity.

Again, best wishes for a full recovery. David Crosby has shown what you can do with a new lease on life.

Dear Jack, I just found out about your recent surgery this morning and I had to write and wish you a healthy and much-deserved recovery. As a 45 year old musician who has been listening to your music since I was 11 I've always regarded you as one of my teachers. I play drums, bass and keyboards and studied drums with your old bandmate Ginger Baker in California in 1991 (see if he remembers!). Your bass playing, songwriting and great vocals have always simply amazed me and when I learned of your illness I just couldn't let the day go by without wishing you well. I hope you're around for a long, long time making more great music. All the very best, Michael A. Adashefski

It has been exactly one year to the day that your music and personality helped me my family and friends experience a night that can never be duplicated nor forgotten. I am not a selfish person but when I heard you became ill I decided to become very selfish. So here are my two selfish wishes. I wish for your music to continue forever and more importantly I wish for you to have a full and complete recovery to allow me to enjoy your Company again someday in our futures.

Dear Jack, My heartfelt congratulations to you, on your successful operation, and my sincere wishes for your complete recovery! I am so glad things have turned out so well for you! Your music and work have meant so much to me over the years! I first discovered, you as did many Americans, back in 1967 with Cream. I saw Cream twice, once on March 29, 1968 at Hunter College in New York City, where the group's performance was absolutely exceptional (it's quality to me sounded like the Wheels of Fire live sides!). I saw Cream a second time in November at Madison Square Garden at your farewell concert. In 1993 or 94 I saw you again in Manhattan, when you were touring with the guitarist Blues Seresina and had a great night as well. As I began getting into jazz, I found your "Things We Like" album in mid '71 - what a scorcher - I still like this record one very much. I bought Escalator Over the Hill when it came out and don't see how Carla Bley could have chosen anyone else for the part! I also enjoyed your contributions on the first two Golden Palominos albums, and have A Queston of Time (great music - hope there's more from this session which will come out somt time), and Shadows in the Air which is just sublime! I just picked up your newly released Live in 1975 at the Manchester Free Trade Hall - this one I bought last week through the U.S. "Collectors Choice" mail order catalog. I have been too busy with the usual day to day routines of work, etc. but each time I pass by my stack of new CD's I look at it with anticipation. Just found at this site about your new album "More Jack Than God" so I'll be picking this one up shortly as well! Again, my best wishes to you, and hopes for a healthy and speedy recovery, which will allow you to be able to get back into doing what you enjoy which is composing and playing music. When you do, I for one will be listening! Sincerely, Ed Fenning New York ed361@yahoo.com

Cream were the first group I thought were really good. I saw Lifetime in a small club in Belsize Park, but only by standing on the backs of a couple of chairs, glued to the wall. What a band, and what a gig. Then there was Crystal Palace, with Mick Taylor, and Carla Bley's keyboards adding to the humor of the lyrics. A year or two later, a theater in Victoria where we had to evacuate for a while due to a bomb threat. I remember the bass guitarist making sure the sound engineer was getting out, before he left the stage himself.

And so on.

But I also saw Ray Brown when he was over 70, his playing exquisite, flawless as ever. So it's great to know you're going to be around another 10 or 15 years to keep great bass playing alive and kicking. Best wishes for a very happy and healthy time.

Hello Jack

I'm currently reviewing your album "More Jack Than God" for The Age, a Melbourne newspaper. I haven't stopped playing it.

But more importantly, I'm pleased to hear that you are recovering from what must have been a hellish ordeal. I hope your recovery is fast and positive. We need you for part three of the trilogy!!!

Perhaps you have already selected a powerful title from your recent experience.

May your talent keep sustaining you.

Dear Jack: You have meant a great deal to me for many years.It is so wonderful that someone has donated a liver to you so that you can continue to live the full life that you live.You must be very grateful.

You are such an inspiration to me with the excellent and innovative music that you have composed,performed and recorded. The gig you played at the El Mo in Toronto in '88 is without a doubt the greatest live show I have seen. Your new album is yet again of the highest quality. I hope that your health will continue to improve and provide you with many more years of happiness and music. Best wishes from one of your keenest fans(I have quite an extensive music library devoted to you). Sincerely, John

Dear Jack, I have been a fan for many years (about 35)- had the pleasure of meeting you a couple of times after gigs, but without going into a lot of detail, I would just like to say that you have provided myself and the rest of the world with some of the best rock and blues, songwriting, singing, performing, etc. and I have always felt your solo work deserved much more attention from the public compared to so many other 'lesser' artists. You have rocked me to the bones, and at times brought me to tears with your music. Soul to soul your music travels. Being a registered nurse, I know what you went through both physically and mentally- you must be one hell of a fighter! I hope the worst is behind you now. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Best wishes always, Bob Clayton

Dear Jack: As a long-time fan (about 35 years now) I was shocked and relieved to hear the news regarding your illness and subsequent recovery. One of my most memorable moments was meeting you for the first time- you were a complete gentleman, a true class act after a gig in February 1990 at a small club on a magical snowy night in Philadelphia. That was about 18 years after the first time I saw you with West, Bruce & Laing at the Philadelphia Spectrum. Your music is the rare kind that at times rocks you to the bones and can also move one to tears. Soul to soul your music moves once it enters the ears. As a registered nurse I have some idea of the hell you went through- you gotta be tough as nails to survive what you have. I sincerely hope the worst is behind you now. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers- best wishes for continued recovery and success. Bob Clayton

I'm likely to be the millionth person to express my wishes, but here goes...

Jack, as a bass player, your work has always been an inspiration to me.

Paul McCartney originally made me to want to play bass--I cheerfully admit that when I was young I liked to pretend I was Paul. I even wanted to play bass left-handed (I'm right-handed).

Then, when I was 15, I first heard the music of Cream.

It was the first time that I really *heard* how the bass guitar could be an up-front, aggressive, and central component of music, while still fulfilling it's primary function. Certainly, I'd heard that kind of stuff before--but it wasn't until I heard Cream that I *noticed*.

The first song I learned to play on the bass was "Sunshine Of Your Love."

Your work gave me a direction of departure, which inspired me to learn, and to excel at the instrument--which is pretty damn good for someone I've never met nor spoken a word to.

The only thing that's changed through the years since first hearing your music is that other musicians have joined the ranks of those who inspire me, though they've only added to, and not replaced the influence you've had on my playing. Some, like Geddy Lee of Rush, were themselves inspired by your playing at the same age I was when I first heard your music.

Let me offer my most heartfelt wishes to you for a speedy recovery, and for many years yet to come of health and music.

That is, after all, the fate of those of us who have discovered we're musicians.

...oh, and I'm STILL looking for an EB-3. ;)

Hello Jack.

I read the news yesterday and at first I was chocked but it's great to hear that you are doing all right now. I'm a bass player myself and you were the first I listened and learned directly from. You were the first were I learned that the bass is also an important instrument and I'm glad that I heard about you Jack, because without you I wouldn't being playing the bass today! So please do well and come to play again soon, I already miss you and your bass playing.

Love, Mick Pedersen Horsens Denmark.

One of the greatest evenings of my life was seeing yourself, Leslie and Corky at Radio City Music Hall back in 1972. Thank you so much for everything and take care of yourself.

Dear Jack, Sorry to hear about your liver problems and wish you a speedy recovery. Time flies the older we get and our bodies age ungracefully. It seems like yesterday when "Cream" was turning the world on its ear. I still listen to my favorite Cream songs on a daily basis. Spoonful, NSU and I'm So Glad still blows my mind. The three of you traveling into the stratosphere and beyond in an aura of glory was such a gift to mankind. I'm nearing fifty and here I am sounding like a little kid. Here's hoping you're fully recovered and will continue a productive life making incredible music.

Sincerely, Harry Falik

You were the reason I learned to play the bass. I would spend hours as a young man listening and learning your rifts and subtle tones in each and every song. Unfortunately, while I could copy your sound, I could never create it on my own.

I thank you for starting me on my musical journey and also for heloping me know my own limitations. I wich you well and hope that your life will always be filled with music.

All my best wishes,

I'm back again because there's stuff I forgot to say. First, I saw you in LA in the early 80's with Clem Clemson, Billy Cobham and Davis Sancious. It was exciting and unforgettable. In the early 90's a friend and I went to see you at a club in Bayshore, Long Island. We got there early and we walked into an empty room. You were on stage singing "Deserted Cities Of The Heart". I thought to myself where's all the fans? I felt sad so when you finished the song I clapped. I couldn't believe one of my musical heroes was standing just a few feet in front of me. I went to the bar to get a beer. The bartender apologized because the beer wasn't cold yet, then he realized that WE WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE THERE so he told us to get out. You guys were just rehearsing. We waited till midnight but you still didn't get on stage. Sorry Jack but we left. It's OK though, those few minutes all alone watching you rehearse was well worth it. Another thing, My brother and I have this private thing that when we play 7 card stud poker and either of us has a Jack and a Deuce for the first two up cards we have to pay 2 dollars to the other. It's in honor of you. Jack Deuce = Jack Bruce. So if a fan shows you a Jack and a Deuce it's probably me.

We are so sorry to hear about your cancer.

I`ve listening your music since 1966 and it`s been a privilege to see You on Stage and also have few discussions with You during your visits in Finland.

It was a great personal pleasure to me to see my son Pyry learning bass playing with "Sunshine". You Jack as a father must know how proud I was.

We both hope strength and all the best to You and your family! Get well soon! We want to enjoy your music in years to come. We also hope to see You in Finland. There are so many of us admiring and loving your music.

Dear Jack: I have already left two posts, but as I continue reading the incredible words of admiration, encouragement and love coming to you from around the world, I am simply blown away. It is obvious from this amaizingly moving outpouring of sympathy and encouragement that there are still many fans of music that isn't 'manufactured' but rather created in the mind, heart and soul of a musician who always stayed true to his roots and at once retained his musical integrity in a business that is sorely lacking in that commodity. I am so full of emotion at what all these beautiful people are expressing to you that I don't know what to say except after spending 35 years getting into your head and heart through your music, and meeting you on several occasions, I feel like you are family and it is obvious I am not alone. We all love you Jack; you were given a wonderful gift and despite some rough times you displayed limitless willpower to share your gift with so many all over the planet. You are an enigma, and I believe someday your music will be required material for music students at the finest performing art schools throughout the world. I have your autograph which you graciously signed after a grueling 90 minute kick-ass gig in Philly with Ginger in 1990; and I would not trade it for Beethoven's, Chopin's, Wagner's, etc. (or all of them if offered). Thank God you pulled through the worst- make sure those nurses keep that PCA pump filled! I will not ramble anymore except to say my son, a 16 year-old bass guitarist, singer, and songwriter was inspired by you at a very early age. (I'm a drummer who's raising a smart young man!) God bless and best wishes to you and your family and close friends, especially Derek who makes all of this possible and what a fine job he does for you, and us! Get well ASAP, as someone pointed out in another post: you've got an album to get out there and promote with a real tour of the states. Best wishes to Bernie as well- your recent crisis must be very hard on him as well. I cherish the photo he let my son take of me with him in front of BB King's in NYC- Thanks Bernie, you are also a real class act! Thank you for allowing me to ramble on, but I had to get it out Jack! Heal man, heal!!!

Best wishes Jack for a speedy recovery. I still say you're the best singer in the history of rock, miles above Robert Plant. It's too bad Cream didn't last very long. You'd get far more airplay on my favourite radio program, Psychedelic Sunday, on Q107 in Toronto, if you had.

Hi Bruce Family

I was stunned when I read of Jack's op - with that on his mind just how can he have been so very accommodating and informative when Glenn and I visited him days before to put together the interview piece that we had arranged to do ?? What a guy !! I have never met anyone so focussed and I'm sure this will be reflected in the article (which we shall run in our next issue) Jack - you are an example of ability and determination, long may you thump those bass strings ! This family wishes you every good fortune to make up for these problems

In fact, my book "Seventies Rock: The Decade of Creative Chaos" has just been released and contains a rather glowing section about those albums. I'd be happy to send you a copy if you'd enjoy seeing it! Warm regards, Frank Moriarty

Jack laddie, Here's hoping that the Gods will revive you thoroughly.

Be well, the Scot in you will not be put down that easily!

I'm so glad to hear that you're feeling better after the Liver transplant. I've been a big fan of yours since I started playing drums in bands back in 1967. I must have seen at least 10-15 concerts that you've done solo & with Leslie West since the early 70s. Your music has always provided me with lots of inspirataion & I'm looking forward to hearing more new tunes from you when you're fully recovered!

Best wishes,

Jack, some 30 years ago one of your songs saved my life. At the time I had been a young heroin addict without hope, but listening to "November Song" gave me the strength to give up the drugs right there and then for good. I hope you get well very soon, so that I can enjoy many more of your albums and gigs, and perhaps you might even do a new version of "November Song" one day.

"More Jack Than God" is another master piece.

Best wishes,

Michael

I am working through some liver problems myself - not needing a transplant yet thank God. I've had two friends I know that had the new liver put in - It was hard on them - I can only imagine. please get well soon Jack. I started playing the bass becuase of Fresh Cream and love and play the blues to this day. I'm very lucky to still be playin - as you are - "Ol' doctor grease paint" will fix you up.

Hey Jack, I am so glad that you are doing much better. I am friends with Godfrey Townsend,Christopher Cross,Allan Parsons, and the rest of the "Walk Down Abby Road Tour". I think you might remember me as the big guy that owns the bar that you jammed at the night you played at the Westbuy Music Fair. The tour just wasn't the same without you this past summer. I pray that you get back on your feet real soon, and maybe even hit the road again. I'd love to hang out with you at BB Kings again. Get Well Soon buddy, I wish you all the best, Jimmy Canno P.S. Tommy Byrnes sends his love.

Dear Jack, Have loved all your music since Cream days. Saw you perform at a tribute concert for John Lennon in Cambridge Mass in 1980. What an inspiring show; hereing White Room live a dream come true. Love "things we like" with John Mclaughlin. My own music is better for hearing you. Will send many healing vibes to you, and best wishes for your joy in life and expression in music.

How much do we need talented people?

Almost as much as we need brave people!

You exemplify both. My 12 year old daughter watched the movie "School of Rock" and could NOT get "Sunshine" out of her head.

All generations need you Jack, we need your music! Way to battle back! We are with you all the way!

Dear Jack,

A friend alerted me (via the Beyond the Pale message board) about your transplant since we are both big fans of your music for many years. I hope you are feeling better and recovering from the liver transplant. I was treated for Hepatitis C virus last year which has been determined as successful for which I feel blessed and thankful although it was difficult. We all hope you'll recuperate and take good care of yourself so that we can see and hear your songs again when you are ready. Don't let the leaden winter bring you down forever. God bless you.

Cheers,

James Allen jallen2@exop.net

Hello Jack, Am deeply saddened on hearing the news of your illness, but heartened with the positive comments of your family.

Hope & pray for your speedy recovery as I look forward to traveling again from here to see you perform songs from your brillant new album, just like I witnessed a couple of years ago when you performed an excellent show in your hometown promoting "Shadows in the Air".

For what it's worth in my opinion your the best musician/vocalist ever.

And as one of your best songs goes "...the best is still to come."

So all the best to you and your family from one of your most ardent supporters,

Mike Sampier. (Galway, Ireland)

I also saw all the New York/New Jersey and Connecticut shows,(as I live in New Jersey). I enjoyed meeting you so very much and I'm so sorry to hear that you haven't been well. I just found out today while I was watching VH1 I think it was, or it might have been some other music channel, about your liver transplant. I'm so glad you were able to have this done and I know you will be well very soon and back rockin before you know it! All my prayers and love to you Jack. Rest up and get well soon!

We are praying for a full recovery. Saw you with Cream in California in early 1968 0n my way home from Navy service. We hadn't heard Cream where I was and your bass playing virtuosity knocked me out. I had been used to the old Big Band chords. In the early '90's, I met you briefly at Toad's Place in New Haven and you inspired me to take up the bass again. You are a soft spoken intellectual giant in the music industry and will always have a very large spot in my heart. Thank you.

Thank God you're recovering. I wanted to see if you were playing in the city soon (NYC). I wanted to see you perform. I've been a fan since the early Cream days. Please get well quickly and stay healthy. You're the best.

Dear Jack,

Today I learned of your struggle and eventual success and I want to send you all the best and hopes for a long life. Your music was a huge step in my musical evolution and inspired me to pick up a guitar and give it a go myself.

My wife also suffers from a liver disease (although she has never done drugs or taken a drink), so we certainly share some of the feeling you and your family have experienced.

Thank you for the music you have given us and I hope we can continue to listen for years to come.

-Mike

Mr. jack bruce. If health is regained, please come to Japan and show a fine figure. It was very sorry for this Japanese public performance to be stopped. The Japanese fan has been waiting.

Please let me express sincere best wishes for your recovery. Sounds as though it was a close shave. Your fans are set for great listening with the recent Sanctuary release and all the Polydor remasters. So take it easy and get well! And at some point we'll look for that third Sanctuary record. Thanks for your perserverence in making great music for a less than sympathetic market.

Dear Jack

I have read most of the e-mails on the website and can't really add too much more.

All I can say is that you have touched the lives of more people than it is possible to comprehend and consistently produced thoughtful innovative and challenging music wherever and whenever.

On behalf of my extended family (and each year a new batch of young musicians get to hear and attempt ot replicate your work)and every one of my friends who are true music lovers, please get yourself fit and well and then, who knows.

Please take things gently and don't let them tempt you to overdo it.

Much love from us all

Dear Jack,

I've just learned of your illness. I have been a HUGE fan of yours since the 60s. You are the finest bassist in rock (or any other genre) and your voice is incredible! I have seen you with Ringo several times over the last few years and again on the 'Walk Down Abbey Road" tour. I never miss a chance. Your new CD "MJTG" is fantastic. I wish you a speedy recovery and all the best in the future. You are a truely remarkable talent and true good guy. I'm a fan forever!

Love, Cathy (Cat)

As a long time fan going back to the Graham Bond days I was excited about the new release. Bought it..Love it...then the news in regards to your health. Wow! Glad to hear you are doing fine. Love the new disc...keep 'em coming. As a radio dics jockey I must say that rock music does not offer the musicianship I was weaned on so thanks again for swimming upstream and rocking outside the box!

Best wishes and health to you Jack a fan, Dean
