Cream was a 1960s British rock band, which consisted of guitarist Eric Clapton, bassist Jack Bruce and drummer Ginger Baker. Celebrated as one of the first great power trios and supergroups of rock, their sound was characterised by a melange of blues and psychedelia. Cream combined Clapton's blues guitar playing with the airy voice and intense basslines of Jack Bruce and the jazz-influenced drumming of Ginger Baker.
Cream's music included songs based on traditional blues such as 'Crossroads' and 'Spoonful', and modern blues such as 'Born Under a Bad Sign', as well as more eccentric songs such as 'Strange Brew', 'Tales of Brave Ulysses' and 'Toad'. Cream's biggest hits were 'I Feel Free', 'Sunshine of Your Love', 'White Room', 'Crossroads' and 'Badge'.
