    RIP Jack Bruce?

    Cream bassist Jack Bruce may or may not be dead at age 71.

    RIP: Jack Bruce of Cream Dead at 71

    This is also being reported by the BBC, and at jackbruce.com.

    However,

    Saw Cream just before their breakup in '68 @ The Houston Coliseum (now torn down).

    Clapton, Baker & Bruce.

    RIP Jack Bruce.



    Update:
    Bruce's death was announced on his official website, and confirmed by his publicist Claire Singers.

    Damn sad to hear this. Cream was amazing....Bruce was amazing.

    How the hell old is Ginger Baker now? He has to be well into his 70s.
