Overview

Eric Clapton, Juack Bruce and Ginger Baker exploded onto the scene the day after England won the World Cup in 1966 and within two years they too were the champions of the world. Cream were modern music's first true supergroup, creating some of rock's most enduring anthems including 'Sunshing Of Your Love', 'I Feel Free', 'Badge', 'Strange Brew' and 'White Room'.



Jam-packed with incisive new interviews with a glittering cast of band members, friends, rivals and onlookers, Cream:How Eric Clapton Took the World by Storm reads like the best rock fiction ever written. Among the close network of legendary bands of the time, none were more ruthless in their devotion to music than Cream - three momentous talents, three momentous egos and three musicians who rarely saw eye to eye. This biography depicts life on the road from the swinging sixties and through the reactionary brutality of America in 1968 to their eagerly anticipated return in 2005, which saw them playing Madison Square Gardens and the Royal Albert Hall to both long-devoted followers and a new generation of fans.
