Happy Birthday JACK BRUCE! (66)

Its better late than never, and here's wishing a Happy Birthday to the great vocalist/bassist/multi instrumentalist Jack Bruce, who turns 66 today.

Jack was the primary lead singer and wrote the bulk of songs for super group Cream, which also consisted of drummer Ginger Baker and guitar legend Eric Clapton.

One day I'll do a proper retrospective of Cream (1966-68)....a classic rock blog cannot be complete without one.

Jack later collaborated with Leslie West and Corky Laing in West, Bruce, and Laing and later with Robin Trower. His early career included work with The Graham Bond Organisation, Manfred Mann, and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. Also in his solo years he's worked with the likes of former Rolling Stone Mick Taylor and former Thin Lizzy guitarist Garry Moore.

Here's some video of Jack Bruce in action, through the years.
