We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
My most listened to recording over the last several decades is Jack Bruce's 1971 album "Harmony Row". Seriously, it continues to reward with new nuances on every listening. Chris Spedding was amazing on guitar and Jack's singing, bass, and keyboards were never better.
He was a rather difficult guy, apparently, but made some great music on occasion, uneven the rest of the time.
I like Bruce a lot too - mostly from his time with Cream, but I saw a documentary on Ginger Baker and in spite of the fact that many of their songs were written by Bruce, Baker was apparently the real creative influence in the group.
It's always fascinating, and somewhat like watching a car accident, to examine the lives of people. Fame and fortune aren't all they're touted as. The music, the bands, the love of a wife, the animosity, the drugs, the decision to live, and the tragedy of losing a child all too early.
I enjoyed the life in his music. And, other than the hits of Cream, I was really at all familiar with Jack Bruce and the man behind the voice of Cream.
Thanks for posting.
