Cream's influence has extended far, from progressive rock bands such as Music/{{Rush}} to jam bands such as Music/TheGratefulDead to heavy metal bands such as Music/BlackSabbath. VH1 and Rolling Stone have both called Cream one of the best bands of all time. Most of all, one of their number one fans was of course Music/JimiHendrix, who came to England in hope of meeting Music/EricClapton, his idol.

Upon the demise of Cream, Eric Clapton had stints with several different bands before embarking on an extremely successful solo career; the other two members have been successful, but less so. The line-up reunited briefly at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993 and then again for a handful of reunion concerts in 2005. Jack Bruce died from liver disease on the 25th of October 2014, at the age of 71. His untimely passing ends any chance of further Cream reunions.

'''Cream''' was an extremely influential English band active from 1966 to 1969, reuniting a few times since. Cream was made up of Music/EricClapton (guitar and vocals), Ginger Baker (drums), and Jack Bruce (lead vocals and bass). All three musicians were already well known in the English rock scene at the time, thus making Cream one of the first {{supergroup}}s and the [[TropeNamer first to be referred as such]]. During their three years of existence, they released four albums, all of which reached the top 6 of the UK Albums Chart.

Thing", courtesy of Jack Bruce's regular lyricist Pete Brown. First verse:
-->When I was young they gave me a mongrel piano,\\
Spent all my time inventing the cup of tea.\\
Writing your name in the sea,\\
Banging my fav'rite head.

* NonAppearingTitle: "Badge."

to:

* NonAppearingTitle: "Badge.""[[note]]George Harrison wrote the song with Clapton and he and Clapton were writing different parts of the lyrics together, sitting opposite each other. Clapton was supposed to write the lyrics for the bridge but hadn't yet, so Harrison wrote on his own piece of paper "BRIDGE". Clapton looked at it, reading it upside-down and said "What's 'Badge'?" They both thought it was so funny that it became the song's title.[[/note]]
