We are all excited about the May, 2005 CREAM reunion rumors buzzing about. When & where will tickets be available?!I saw Jack & Cream October 11,1968 at the New Haven Arena in New Haven,CT. To see Cream, Jack's powerful vocals, his unforgettable rendition of the blues classic "Traintime" again would be the Ultimate Event!!

Saw Jack and Cream at the Chastain Ampitheater in North Atlanta during the summer of 1969. Still remember that concert to this day! Incredible. I think I got a 4 track player that summer just to listen to Cream!

I am a real fan of Jack Bruce. Follwed him in the 60's with Cream. The best bass player I have ever listened to. Heard of the Cream Reunion that is happening in May of 2005. Hope there will be a CD and DVD.

Can't help it, but the magic of "cream" is still out there. I've listened to Eric and Ginger many times but there is always something missing in their performance, and that is that spark and synergy that makes it happen for us – the fans. Hendrix said it all when he went "rogue" and played "Cream" on the beeb.
I’m still hopeful that one day you will play together one more time… If so it would be the biggest gig in the history of music.

I'm so glad that you have recovered. I'm glad I'm glad I'm glad. I am estatic that Cream will reunite. I don't know if you'll make it to O'l Beantown but one can hope. I have been a fan since I first heard the opening strains of I Feel Free. Cream was a beath of fresh air. So different and ultimately one of the few truely influential musical groups of all time. They are right up there with the Beatles. Cream did for musicianship what the Beatles did for song writing. This is not to sell Creams' (escentially you) song writing short. Though Eric went on to become such a huge international star it was you that was the brains, heart and soul of Cream. It amazes me how important the band is concidering thier short lifespan. What a band! I look forward to the cd and dvd of the concert. How stupid would it be not to produce them! I am saddened to hear of the passing of "your father" D.H.S. A great muscian. I wish you good health and a long life. Keep cranking out the great music. You are unique. Your lifelong fan Paul. PS Your autograph on a brown paper bag (it held beer previously) still hangs, framed on my wall.

I need to find out , when in may 05' they will be playing so I can make travel planes . I will need tickets to the event , I miss not miss this event !
Time: 9:38:21 AM
Many of us often (and i'm one of it)talk about what you have done in the past, Jack. But for an artist his last "creation" "tribute" ( to music - in the case of Jack )is the most important. Listening again and again to "more jack than god" let me tell you, Jack, that this is one of the best things you have ever made. Thanks and have a good new year.
Time: 12:45:57 PM

Jack, I can only echo the sentiments of all the others writing here. I was a bassist/keyboardist in'68 when I heard Crossroads from Wheels of Fire. I was never the same again.
You generated within me a freedom and spirit of adventure that has served me very well for near forty years. Everytime I plug in the EB-3 I think about what Jack would do if he were here. I am constantly aware of your ethereal presence, scrutinizing and nodding approval of my performance.
Needless to say, you have been my hero both on and off the stage. There will never be another such as you.
Congratulations in whipping the illness. No, your MD's did not know you very well. I do.
In whatever you choose to do, I pray for your happiness. May you be in Heaven a week before Lucifer hears you've passed.
With undying admiration and love, Glenn Flowers-bassist

Hi Jack and best wishes to you. Thrilled to hear you, Eric and Ginger are playing together again in May. The only thing better than being there for that is if you and the band could play for my daughter's coming out party? Please let me know A.S.A.P as I'll have to adopt a girl and sell everything I own. The adoption could take a while...

Jack - what a trip to be posting in your guestbook. It actually makes me like the internet. Which is not easy to do.
Anyway, when I was a bad kid skipping school we used to stay up all night and listen to Harmony Row. Now I'm 46. The other night I stayed up all night listening to Harmony Row with my best friend, a 28 year old punk guitarist.
She was blown away and now she plays the record all the time - and she's the hottest guitarist in the city. There you go. It's an immortal album. I hope you read this guest book and feel good about that.
Because you are one of the only people to bring any kind of real classical music sensibility into pop recordings. No pro-rock bulls**t. It's the real deal.
Keep making records. We need 'em.

jack, to make any other comments about the reunion of the cream would be redundant but I feel everyone should know the complexity of this group. I probably did more research o the cream than any other rock band and for good reason. You all had a different sound...unmatched. I always wanted to pit your band against the likes of zepplin even though styles were different. Talent has a way to come to the top (ie like cream)...hope you are doing well to really the best bass player I've ever heard. Keep ginger snapping his sticks and let eric follow you every once in awhile...later from the biggest cream fan ever...craig

Its been a long time 35 years to be exact.
I knew your Mum “Betty” well, who could forget her ! obviously that’s where you got your sense of fun and lust for life. I would visit her regularly at her home in Chatham in Eastkilbride. She would give me fizzy drinks and biscuits and let me tickle your piano in the living room. She would then sit me down and play me the cassette session tapes that you would regularly send to her and ask me what I thought. I remember in particular the tapes for Hows Tricks. They were such an inspiration to me at my early age.
I remember your Dad “Charlie he was a character and a half, he and your Mum would pop over sometimes normally on new years after the bells your Dad would bring his fiddle and that would be that. I lived with my parents in Chatham across from your parents house.
You and I met on a couple of occasions the last time we spoke you had come up to chatham in your Jag SJX. I told you at the time that your music had inspired my to become a singer song writer. I will always remember your advice to me at the time “ Don’t do it for a living Paul, get a good career and keep your music as a serious hobby”
I took your advice and got a job in financial services. Im now 42 and the career that you advised me to get has come in pretty useful to feed my wife three children. However, I have continued to write and record my own stuff at home. I wouldn’t mind you having a listen to my stuff and letting me know if I am doomed to a further 25 years in financial services ! ha ha.
I was delighted to hear that you are having a a reunion with Cream as I was a little young first time around and hope to able to get a couple of tickets for the Albert Hall and bring my Son “Gregor” that would be fantastic !
Well Jack, I will close by saying that I was very sorry to hear how ill you had been last year and I am delighted that you have made such a great recovery. I have so much to thank you for, namely the original inspiration in my song writing which has been the passion of my life. I will never forget and often think fondly of the days spent with your Mum at Chatham.
My very kind regards

i remember the 25th anniversary colosseum gig in london when dick heckstall smith was kind enough to sign his autobiography for me and then managed to round up yourself and gary moore plus the rest of the band to sign. this was an honour for me and dick was a total gentleman who will be sorely missed at future colosseum gigs. RIP Dick!

Hi Jack, Ok, everybody is waiting on pins and needles to hear news about the CREAM reunion, I have been waiting since '75 for it and all but gave up hope. Is there any possibility that you guys could extend tour to the "states"? I will be very satisfied to see the DVD, but, my son brought up the question "wouldn't it be the concert of a lifetime to see Cream live?" I agree, but can't afford to travel to England. Eagerly awaiting--God Bless, Jim Boettcher

Jack First of all - I hope that you're well and happy with life, which is by far the most important thing. Next: have just added to my collection of your output with Jet Set Jewel (a TRUE jewel), Songs For A Tailor (very cool and incredibly imaginative), and Doing This ... On Ice (nice and loose in parts, so a real concert - and showing how you preserve/augment the past and constantly build for the future). Thank you for your truly astonishing talent and output. I now almost have your complete output (sounds rude to me!!) with just 3 to go. Finally: the Cream reunion. Someone, somewhere is just making an obscene killing with the tickets. Hopefully you, Ginger and Eric will gain financially and musically what you rightfully deserve - but getting a ticket is now beyond a joke. 35 years on and the final Cream gigs will be rembered as much for the sell out of the true fans as for the significance of the group and its reunion. Sorry to end this mail on a down note but this just hasn't been thought through enough. Cheers all the same my friend - you remain an inspiration to many. Rob
