Jack Bruce confirms Cream is over

In a recent interview, Cream bassist Jack Bruce has confirmed that the legendary supergroup will not reunite. This goes against a previous statement Bruce made in 2008 in which he expressed willingness to continue working with the band’s other two members, Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker.

From RollingStone.com:

If you missed Cream’s epic reunion shows in 2005, bassist Jack Bruce is the bearer of some bad news. “There’s a new story now — Cream is over,” Bruce told BBC 6Music, effectively crushing any hope of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame trio reuniting once again to rock “Sunshine of Your Love.” Bruce’s recent quotes to the BBC are in stark contrast to what Bruce said in October 2008: “I think there might be a chance of some more,” Bruce said then of the possibility of more Cream reunion shows. “I would like to do some more, ’cause I enjoyed it. It was very emotional. I would like another shot at it.”

While no official announcement has been made regarding the end of Cream, the members of the trio have been moving along with their own musical endeavors. Eric Clapton will tour this year with Jeff Beck and then Roger Daltrey, and Bruce also has something “very exciting” planned. “So much so I can’t even talk about it. It’s the most exciting project I’ve ever been involved in,” Bruce said.

I don’t think this comes as a surprise to anyone. While I’d consider catching them live, the main reason I’d want Cream to get back together is so they could possibly play a Super Bowl Halftime Show. Seriously, who else is left to play that thing?
