Cream (band)

This article is about the 1960s rockband, Cream is also the name of a British nightclub.

Cream were a seminal 1960s rock band which featured the guitarist Eric Clapton, bassist Jack Bruce, and drummer Ginger Baker.

Celebrated as the first of the great power trios of rock, their sound was characterised by a melange of blues and psychedelia, combining Clapton's mastery of the genre with the airy voice of Jack Bruce and, at times, manic rhythms of Ginger Baker. The drug-addled imagery and ambience of the time abounds. Cream epitomised the high energy sound of the time, anchored in a familiar blues style; from the traditional classics such as "Crossroads" and "Born Under a Bad Sign", through more eccentric imagery found in "Strange Brew" and "Tales of Brave Ulysses", and culminating in the protracted eccentricities of "Spoonful" and "Toad". Both these live tracks feature on the Wheels of Fire - Live at the Fillmore, essentially a completely different album to the In the Studio album, but with the cover differing only in the title, the colour, and the details of the tracks.

The late Felix Pappalardi, producer (and later member of Mountain), sometimes called the 'fourth member' of Cream, is featured heavily on the Disraeli Gears album.

After breaking up in November 1968 the three members of Cream didn't play together until 1993, when Cream was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and played at the induction ceremony. The band has not played together since then although there are plans to rehearse, in early 2005, for several shows at the Royal Albert Hall.

The LP, which featured the Top Ten hit "Real Love" (not to be confused with the John Lennon composition that would later be a hit for The Beatles), was a success, but did not match the blockbuster figures of Minute by Minute.

So he left the Doobies (eventually he forged his own short-lived solo career), and shortly after a new lead singer named Michael McDonald (another member of Steely Dan) was recruited to replace Johnston. But by 1976, lead singer Johnston grew tired of touring, and fell ill as a result.

Their live shows had given them an energetic fanbase, primarily among the Hells Angels of Southern California. The following year (1975), Steely Dan member Jeff Baxter (nicknamed "Skunk") joined the band as a guitarist. These early singles continued to be hits for the next few years and eventually earned continued airplay among today's Classic Rock radio stations. Under the leadership of Johnston and Simmons, the Doobies' trademark sound (a cross between heavy metal and Southern rock) helped lead the band to the Top Ten charts with such other hits as "Long Train Runnin'" & "China Grove" (from their 1973 album The Captain And Me), and "Black Water" (from 1974's What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits).
