Bruce And Baker Rift Wrecks Cream Reunion Plans
Another CREAM reunion has been ruled out by bassist JACK BRUCE because he can't stand being on the same stage as bandmate GINGER BAKER.
The trio, Bruce, Baker and Eric Clapton, played shows in London and New York in 2005, but the bass player, who turns 64 today (14May07), insists hopes of a world tour and new recordings are far fetched.
He says, "I don't think we'll do another reunion because none of us want to do it. It doesn't mean it won't happen, but at the moment none of us are in love with the idea."
Bruce admits his often-difficult relationship with Baker won't help any future reunion plans: "It's a knife-edge thing for me and Ginger. Nowadays, we're happily co-existing in different continents, with Ginger in South Africa, although I was thinking of asking him to move. He's still a bit too close.
"It's all Ginger's fault. He's a terrible guy. Ask anybody, ask his ex-wife. Although, according to my wife, it's as much my fault as it is his."
