I'm a mid forty guy and a Jack Bruce fan forever. I live in New England and just bought a business from a similarly aged guy in Pensacola, Florida. Our tastes in music are similar and we were delighted to find out that Jack Bruce was a mutual favorite. And more amazing still, while everyone harps on Cream ,we both like Songs for a Tailor and Harmony Row best of all.

When will we see Jack in the US in 2003???

Jack, Saw you twice at Coach House (San Juan Capistrano) with Ginger and Blues Saraceno. Anybody who hasn't seen Mr. Bruce...Dude can play. When I heard "Born Under A Bad Sign"...well God could have taken me right there and then. You are my mentor for bass players. Been playing awhile now. You have forgotten more than I will ever know. But it sure feels good with that sound rumbling up your backbone. Hope to see you again soon in California. Stevie J

I was just listening to "Smiles & Grins" from "Live At The Old Grey Whistle Test", and I began reminiscing about Jack's show my brother and heard at The Palace in Hollywood right before Christmas 1989. Having been a JB fan from before the Cream days, the show was quite a treat, especially when Ginger Baker performed "Toad". My brother and looked at each other and both said in unison,"...it doesn't get any better than this." And being two old farts, we didn't have to smoke anything before the show to reach that conclusion. All the best and Happy 2003.

Dear Mr. Bruce and all the readers Back in 67-69 Cream was popular in Thailand the band used to try to copy the music note for note.They probably don't understand that the blue rock jam type of music are meant to play as the way you feel. Stangely enough we still rock out jamming with the greatest hit such as croosroad, whiteroom, sunshine, stange brew.I never did get to see Cream but did see Mr. Clapton.If Mr. Bruce is ever want to visit Thailand for some rest and relaxation please contact me for any assistance and maybe we can sneek in a jam seesion by the beach somewhere.

I didn't realize until just now that so many other people knew about Jack Bruce like this. Feels good. There are so many possible things to say. I just will say this one for now and if someone wants to e-mail me to commiserate please feel free. There were parts in Spoonful that I think raised my spirit and it stayed up. From 67' til today still up.

Been entertained by Jack since I was in my teens. Used to go to sleep listening to the live version of Spoonful off Wheels of Fire. I occasionally have dreams where Spoonful is so clear it is unreal. Only heard Jack live once and that was with West Bruce and Laing in Denver, Colorado. The bass solo sound like a lead guitar at times. Amazing. One question - why is Harmony Row out of print? An absolutely wonderful album which should be made available again.

First saw Jack Bruce with Cream in 1967 at Lanchester Poly. Still seems like yesterday..... I'm retiring to Rhodes soon to bring a little JB culture to the Greeks. If any JB fans get to Pefkos, look me up up by following your ears.

Hey Larry ! If you're still out there, give a an e-mail. I got a message on my voice mail from you back In Dec 2000, after I had just won tickets to see Jack in Bournemouth ( the show was later cancelled ) . I was the guy you hitched a ride with to see Jack & GB @ The Chance in Poughkeepsie back in 1989. Please give me a ring @ 718-961-0305 or e-mail me . Did you get to see Jck @ BB's in Dec 2001. I was so blown away I actually called in sick the next day, as I couldn't get to sleep for hours after the show. Jack plays those tunes like he wrote them 10 minutes ago, they sound so fresh .Clearly the most passionate musician around. Like Kip Hanrahan once said ...." you can't talk about Jack Bruce, you have to sort of talk around him . Listening to him is like having 6 or 7 shots of the best cognac you've ever had". I couldn't agree more.

Hi! I am very happy to see that the reissues are on their way. Especially it'll be interesting to see what the extras are. I recently listened to some of my vinyls and the music is so good that it really needs to be available all the time. By the way - there's no mention of the DVD of the German Roskpalast concert on the pages? It does deserve som space! Best regards Tapani

i know that this sounds really (god i dont know the word for it) but eemm how do i put this. well jack, i just found out that i am related to you in one way or another, you see my granda is eric murray and suprisingly enough he came from glasgow.Well i am his son, peters, daughter.you may have no idea what i am talkin about, and im not trying to get anything from you just incase you get that impression.if you could somehow get in touch that would be great.i dont really know about the murray family that well but i know there are quite a few family members in canada. you see my mum divorced my dad when i was like 1 month old and i know nothing about your side of my family. another thing that might prove i am telling the truth is : eric married isabella kennedy.

My dear age long "Mentor", I grew up hanging out at night and weekends at Washington Square, in Greewich Village. We used to go to all the cafes and "dives" where musicians like you, Jimi, Jim Morrison etc. used to jam with each other mixing it up and gaining you U.S. notoriety. "Those were the days" for me. And believe it or not, probably for you too. A friend always, Will Conrad

Jack, thanks for being what you are. Thanks for sitting on top of the world, thanks for being a cream, thanks for being in the harmony row, thanks for being the shadow in the air. i saw you so long ago in Brussel with leslie west. When will i have the chance to see you again - i'll present you to my young son of 12 years old. In the 60' there was another bass player named Jack. Jack Cassidy of Jefferson airplane. My friend loved him. I was fan of you. What good discussions we had. i'm not a musician but my ears they are. your voice, your bass sound, your music and a good wine...sometimes life is really beautiful. Thanks again and sorry for the mistakes.

Jack- I was in the 15th row at your concert at the Fillmore East in NYC in 1970. I still have the original program & ticket! You were playing with Larry Coryell & Mitch Mitchell. You did songs from the "Songs for a Tailor" Lp which had just been released. Eric was best when he was with you and Ginger.

Clearly the best bassist to ever walk this earth, and one of the best vocalists too! Cherished memories include seeing Jack at Bottom Line in 89' or thereabouts and being entertained, schooled, and enlightened like I never have been before and if that wasn't enough here comes encore time as Jack introduces an "old friend" and the curtains part when emerges a figure in a tweed jacket who turns out to be ERIC CLAPTON! Needless to say the place erupted into a frenzy that I was positive would bring the house crumbling down to the ground. People everywhere in the house were high-fivin' and yes, hugging each other as we all knew that we were witnessing history. After that show I truly floated across Manhattan and right over the Hudson River back to NJ never to be the same again. Also, at The Ritz in NYC circa 90'Jack was slated to play with drummer Mike Shrieve the lunatic from Santana (Woodstock years) Shrieve could not attend by it did not matter. I was grooving so hard to the show and worked my way all the way to the Ritz's general admission floor so that I was literally beneath Jack's feet. To show his appreciation for my enthusiasm Jack threw his harmonica right to me where it bounced off my chest, hit the floor and was quickly picked up by someone else. Not at all being detered I began grooving even harder knowing Jack intended for me to get that harmonica. A few numbers later Jack actually bent over toward me and gently lobbed me yet another harp which you KNOW I did NOT drop this time. The cherished German made Hohner in the key of C is still one of my prized possesions and I will never forget the exchange between Jack Bruce and me.

Thanks Jack, you have made my life a much richer place. You are the Bach of our generation and it's too bad that people won't realize it until it is too late. Reading this guestbook gives me a great feeling that I am not alone in my appreciation.Saw you with Cream in Vancouver and with West Bruce and Laing in San Diego. Love Shadows and when I want to be musically transported I listen to your music. Harmony Row and Songs for a Tailor are incredible and as much as I love Cream I think that West Bruce and Laing are the ultimate power trio. Proud to be alive during your time.

Wonderfull Website @bout one of my Favorite Bass Players. The Deep profound sounds of Cream are still in my Subconcious ,like all decent music. A reunion of CREAM would be AWESOME , Why not have a Reunion of BLUE CHEER as well!!!( An admitted Copy-cat Band from the 60,s ,but Technically Rougher!!) It is sort of tragic that CREAM &Jack Get overlooked as Prime Influences in Hard Rock /Heavy Metal, where would Sabbath be without The WALL OF SOUND that CREAM created????? Sorry if this sounds TOO Cream Oriented ,I have only one Jack Bruce Solo recording. The First time I ever heard of a Six -string BASS was on the Back of the FRESH CREAM LP as a 14-year old. Now Most people don,t even notice A Unusual BASS when a band Plays..

I did happen to See Jack @ Friends back in 1980 at SUNY New Pa;tz ,NY - was a very Jazzy show , Atmospheric Fusion Music..

Not to Disparage Jack, If I wanted to be a Over the TOP rock Bassist I would be a Combination of Bill Wyman , Paul McCartney , John Entwistle and JACK himself!!!!!!! COOL WEBSITE ,So Detailed , Take Care!!!!!!!

Dear Jack Bruce - yo wuz always the best mon. Do you ever play a 5 or 6 string bass? .. or do you tune down so you can get below E? (there is so much music that is always seems to go to D or C#). I used play an (old dinosaur) Gibson six string. still listen to your playing and copy - never too old to learn rgds from Oz

What happened to your venture HotFlash with Dennis Chambers and Andy Summer Jack? (your diary entry in 2000 said an album in 2001) Surely it must be an awesome combination - best drummer, guitarist and bass player in the world today, but couldn't find HotFlash releases on Amazon.com. Please let me know how to get CD's if they were released? Sincerely hope they were. I',m going home to listen to your bass solo on "Crossroads" now. Gonna make my ears bleed if I can. Peace and Love, James.

Speaking of local bands.If you can find Black Moon check them out.Kind of like Jack Bruce sits-in,on bass,with Stone Temple Pilots.Not a lot of subtlety; tons of emotion and power.Nice version of White Room with Tales of Brave Ulysses twist at the end.

I'm 50 now and at long last I got to see Jack live at Leeds (UK) some 5 years or so ago! I was a fan of his from day one when he played with Cream. He has been THE inspiration and model for my bass playing because quite simply, he was and is the BEST.

hi Jack,

Dig this the buzz in New York City is CANYON. I think you should really ceck these guys out. For me they are the altimate CREAM tribute band. These guys really cook!!!!!! CANYON has had the pleasure of meeting you back in December of 2001 when you played NYC. Derek your web master introduced them that beautiful night. You invited them back to your hotel for conversation and laughs. Thank you so much for the insperation you have given to CANYON and for keeping the torch of the power trio alive and kicking.

A true fan of THE CREAM Jack Bruce and CANYON Cheers

ps: Canyon is playing at Le Bar Bat April 9th, 2003, 7:30pm NYC.

Jack,

I've been a fan for years - Back in '68, Wheels of Fire was the first double album I bought - for a 13 year old kid it was more than I could afford, but it was worth it. It made quite an impression on me and 18 years later it was one of the first 6 CDs I bought also.

Also loved the stuff with Tony Williams, Songs for a Tailor, West Bruce & Laing, etc. Then I lost touch with your music for a few years until about 2 years ago when someone played 'A Gathering of Minds' (Live from Montreux; mid '80's with Alan Holdsworth, Billy Cobham, David Sancious & Didier Lockwood) for me - since then I've been searching around and picking up what I could of your catalog.

Just got my copy of Shadows in the Air. I've got to say this is GREAT! An incredibly strong release. Great to hear you are still at it. Now I've got some catching up to do as I explore the rest of your catalog.

Obviously Cream is only one aspect of your long career, but it is an incredibly influential aspect. As a young teenager during Cream's tenure, it was probably second only to the Beatles in terms of expanding my own musical horizons. Plus Cream set a standard for musicianship in the Rock arena that few have been able to meet.

Eric's guest slot on the version of 'Sunshine of Your Love' from Shadows in the Air convinces me that you two still have the potential of creating fiery and important music together. I can only imagine what would happen if you collaborated on NEW material in addition to revisiting your old material. In other words, if I were to ask you about the possibility of a Cream 'reunion' I want you to understand that the request does not come from the standard nostalgiac reasons of wanting to hear you wail away on all the old hits, but from a genuine desire to create a conduit for the creation of powerful new music. And what was Cream, if not such a conduit?

So how about it, Jack? Any chance you & Eric & Ginger might give it a go? I can understand all kinds of arguments against it, not the least of which would be the zillions of people who would only want you to play the old stuff. But wouldn't the possibility of creating something new and magical make it worth the risk?

"I'll wait in this place where the shadows run from themselves..."

Whatever you decide, thanks for decades of amazing music!

-David Vella

I was a stage hand at Winterland and the old Fillmore when Cream recorded "Wheels of Fire" I had a broken wrist at the time and had a big plaster cast on my arm. Jack's bass amp went out one night and the 2 Cream roadies Micky & Peter weren't to be found. I switched heads with another acts Marshall heads and got Jack back in bussiness. With a broken wrist! I loved it, I have pictures of those nights, and a great one of Jack backstage with a big smile. He was very nice to me, an awestruck 18yr old kid.

Well this is to Jack

Here it is; March 15,2003 and I am still listening to Cream.

I was 15 and tried to learn bass. I figured it must be played the only way I knew and that was a la "Sittin on top of the world" off Goodbye. Scales, what scales, you played it like Jack Bruce or else.

I had an EB3 but I finally gave up, cause I couldn't play like Jack Bruce and turned to the guitar.

The trio of Cream were awesome and you produced music in a classical sense, as people are still listening to music made in the 60's because its great art.

PEter.

Jack and co:

I saw you in at B.B. King's in NYC in late 2002. My wife and I have seen hundreds of shows with many artists. We both agree that Jack Bruce and the Cuicoland Express was by far the best Rock concert we have ever been to. Jack and the band were not only electrifying performers, but also the music and musicianship were adventurous and exciting. We really look forward to your next run through the Big Apple. Thanks . . .

I've been reading up on the equipment Jack's used over the years and found out that one of the EB3 basses he used in Cream had a diode installed in it to make it sort of fuzzy without overdriving an amp.

Was wondering if anyone knew how this was done, what kind of diode, and where it was installed, etc.?

Thanks!

Having recently read some generous comments about Black Moon on these pages,I am sad to say that, Black Moon,in its previous form, no longer exists.As the bass player,I am most flattered by compairisons of my playing to Jacks.I only wish it were true.Thank you R.Powers.The core of the band remains in tact.Hope to re-emerge,(probably with a name change) this summer.Thanks to all who came out to see us.

(I've just now found this website, I'm still learning to think in Internet.) There are a few things I've had in my head for years, but never written them down. In the 60s, we had a homemade stereo system that had separate amps for each channel, and one was better than the other, so I listened to Cream with a remarkably subdued guitar part. And, as was mentioned by someone else in the guestbook, that's when I learned to listen to music, listening in a darkened basement to the bass tracks on "Disreali Gears", "Wheels of Fire" and "Goodbye". I didn't get the chance to see/hear Jack live until the late 80s, when he played the El Mocambo with Anton Fier. I don't think I've ever been nervous before someone else's concert, except that one. Would it be a letdown, after so many years, such high expectations? No, it was one of the most moving, most musical, most ...... blissful, I guess evenings I've ever spent. I couldn't sleep for hours. The other point I want to make is that by investigating the music of people that Jack has collaborated with (I was going to give examples, but the list is too staggeringly long), I have been introduced to worlds that opened into worlds into worlds. Thank you for the journey and the nourishment.
