    Awwww.... I'm so sad.

    Jack's contributions to music, from John Mayall's Bluesbreakers to Manfred Mann (anybody remember them?), West, Bruce and Laing and so many others - and Cream of course - really were legendary. He played with Frank Zappa, Lou Reed, John McLaughlin - the list just goes on and on.

    I can still hear those awesome bass riffs in I Feel Free and White Room (which I believe Jack co-wrote).

    Think I'll go have a listen to Wheels of Fire.

    RIP Jack, we'll miss you!

    Not to date myself but I remember seeing Cream at Detroit's Grande Ballroom in the summer of 1968. You had to be 16 to get in and I was shy by a few years so I borrowed a friend's ID. Our local darlings - the MC5 - was one of the opening acts. I still have the poster. And yes, it was a memorable night! Psychedelia!

    Given that he was 71 it's amazing that his last album, Silver Rails came out in March of this year. A true musician to the end.
