Cream was a British rock band from London, England.
He was active from 1966 to 1968 and consisted of guitarist Eric Clapton, bassist singer Jack Bruce, who died in 2014 and drummer Ginger Baker, who died in 2019.
Famous for having been the first "Supergroup" in rock history, a group of well-known musicians, their music is characterized by a mix of blues, rock and a good dose of psychedelism that combines Clapton's mastery of the guitar, the catchy aerial vocals and riffs of Jack Bruce's bass, and the precise rhythms of Ginger Baker's drums. Cream represents the intense energy of the era's sound, rooted in a more classic blues style. The compositions are blended between traditional classics like Crossroads and Born Under to Bad Sign, and more eccentric songs like Strange Brew and Tales of Brave Ulysses.
With Grateful Dead, Cream is considered the first jam band. Indeed, in concert, the band did not stop improvising with songs that regularly exceeded 20 minutes. The group is also considered to be one of the pioneers of heavy metal music.
