Added DiffLines:

* LeadDrummer: Ginger Baker provided one of the first examples in rock music, and he remains one of the most noteworthy. He's also managed to accrue enormous respect as a jazz drummer (and indeed, he came from a jazz background to begin with).


Added DiffLines:

* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: They incorporated elements of jazz, blues, psychedelia, and elements of classical and world music in a manner that had never before been tried in rock music.

* UrExample: Of about seven different rock genres, arguably - seminal artists in genres as diverse as jam bands (Mickey Hart of the Music/GratefulDead), ProgressiveRock (Neil Peart of Music/{{Rush}}), ThrashMetal (Lars Ulrich Music/{{Metallica}}), and PunkRock (Music/JohnLydon of Music/SexPistols and Music/PublicImageLtd) have attested to Cream's influence, and Cream provide early examples of tendencies like {{improv}}, EpicRocking, and UncommonTime that later became de rigeur in various rock genres. Despite being together only two years, Cream ended up being one of the most influential acts of TheSixties.

* UncommonTime: Parts of "White Room" on ''Wheels of Fire'' are in 5/4 time, and "Those Were The Days" has some quirky rhythmic shifts, with bars of 3/4 and 5/4 along with 4/4 in the chorus.

-->I told you not to wander 'round in the dark\\
I told you 'bout the swans, that they live in the park[[note]]According to Creator/GeorgeHarrison, this line was contributed by a drunken Creator/RingoStarr, who dropped by while he and Clapton were writing the song [[/note]]\\
Then I told you 'bout our kid, now he's married to Mabel.\\

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.
