Jack Bruce, 1943-2014

Jack Bruce, legendary bassist, composer and vocalist, passed away on October 25. Attaining superstar status in the mid 1960s as a member of the group Cream, Mr. Bruce inspired generations of bass players, including yours truly. I feature him among my favorite bassists on “The Funk” page of this blogsite. Rest in peace, Jack Bruce.

  1. Nice job jason, he was the genius and few remember his name or who he was. He pushed Clapton forward. I wore the grooves out on Disraeli Gears.
