Former CREAM singer and bassist Jack Bruce is recovering from a near-fatal liver transplant - after his body rejected the new organ.

The SUNSHINE OF YOUR LOVE star was diagnosed with liver cancer during the summer (03) and underwent the operation on 19 September (03).

However, Bruce's kidneys also failed, and an infection set in following the operation.

A statement from SANCTUARY RECORDS says, "After being very critical for a period in which we almost lost him, Jack is now making a successful recovery."
