Band Of The Week - Cream

Sorry for late update, I'm very busy with my work recently and always come home very late. I really don't have much time to read other blogs. It's been a very extremely hectic week for me, this weekend I still need to back to office for work.

Alright, this weekend my band of the week goes to Cream. I guess most of you know cream that can eat, not the Cream classic rock band. If you don't know this band it's fine, but I'm sure you know who is Eric Clapton? Yeah... He was from that band before.

Now let's listen some of my favorite tune from Cream. First will be Crossroads, it's a nice song. Next will be Politician, I think I no need to explain more. Lastly is Badge, another great song from Cream.

About Cream

Cream were a British rock band formed in 1960s. The band consisted Eric Clapton (guitarist), Jack Bruce (bassist) and Ginger Baker (drummer). Cream were celebrated as one of the great power trio and supergroups of rock. Cream also characterised by a melange of blues, pop and psychedelia.

Cream (1993)

Cream broke up in November 1968 due to clashing egos and divergent visions. Clapton was forced to play the perpetual role of peacemaker for Bruce and Baker. Cream was inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. Cream announced that they reunite for a series of four shows in 2004. However, the future of Cream still uncertain.

Cream! I remember listening to them when I am like 7 or 8 years old. My brother listened to em a lot. My favorite song is Sunshine of Your Love.

Ginger Baker might be the greatest drummer ever. His stick speed is incredible. Clapton and Bruce used to play their guitars so loud because of arguments that Baker had blisters on his hands from having to beat them so hard. Would love to see this trio live.

Sunshine of Your Love also my favorite. I got their latest live DVD and it was a good concert.
