Sad news indeed. I only listened into BBC radio last year to Jack Bruce picking his favourite tracks. R.I.P to a legend :(

R.I.P. His playing in Cream made me think bass could be as exciting as guitar, so I swapped. I learned a lot from Jack Bruce and, listening to White Room, there is still plenty left to learn. A musical legend who always seemed like a really nice guy.

Wow, sad to hear this...
When I was 8 my uncle gave me his old record player, they were'nt called stereos then, along with 3 albums... Beach Boys-Pet Sounds, The Beatles-Meet the Beatles, and Cream-Disraeli Gears. Although they all got played to death, Cream was the one that died first.....
Those 3 albums helped to define my musical tastes as a young person.
The only one I rebought later in life though was the Cream album on my way to discovering Led Zep, Deep Purple etc.
Jack was influential to me and will be missed.

Inspiring man, loved especially his fretless playing, and a good singer, too.
He had a fullfilled, creative life, R.I.P., Mr. Bruce ...
