The Cream reunion concert

cream.jpg61 year old Bass player Jack Bruce has had a liver transplant and 65 year old drummer Ginger Baker suffers from arthritis, but Eric Clapton's first big rock group -- Cream (you know, Sunshine of Your Love, Badge, White Room, etc)-- lives on.

Craig Newmark points us to Fark.com's comment on this article about the reunion concert of the 1960's rock band:

Cream reunites in concert. For those of you under 40: Cream was Eric Clapton's old band. Under 30: Clapton was once a big rock star. And for you under 20: Rock was a kind of music they used to play on the radio.

And don't miss Banjo Jones' musings on what happened to Cream after Clapton heard The Band.

It's kind of silly - like watching the Barely Rolling Stones. I saw Cream live at the Ampitheater in Chicago. They were great, but why wait until you're geriatric to come back - just for the money? Why not pay to see another Ali-Foreman fight?
