    Thumbs up Reunion of one of my inspirations!

    Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker getting back together and doing a reunion show at the Albert Hall in May of this year. I saw these same three play at a place called the Glen Casino when I was in my early teens and no one knew who the where. I'll never forget the whipped cream logo on Ginger Bakers two bass drum heads. A year later their first album hit the record stores in Beeffalo, Fresh Cream. Ginger Baker inspired me to learn more on drums and strive to be a clean player.
    I think it's been 1968 or 69 since their last performance and it was at the Albert Hall.
    I would give my left earlobe and pinkie toe nail just to see them live! Then again, maybe it will be on cable?
    Just thought I would share THIS with you cause I wasn't willing to share CHER with you! ]
    Now, if they can get Genisis back for a reunion with Peter Gabrial.

    Awesome Styxx! Thanks for informing us of the reunion. Cream is one of my all-time favorite bands. I'm sure that I'm not the only one here who would say this, but Eric Clapton is one of the main reasons I picked up the guitar in the first place. Tears in Heaven is one of the first tunes I ever learned to play and THE most requested song in my repertoir whenever I play gigs.

    Maybe I should try to track down tickets as well! :-)


    Thanks,
    Jonny

    That's funny, I was sitting in my car waiting for my wife when the local rock station was playing this very song and they announced the upcoming reunion! Ginger Backer was here in Buffalo at a local recording studio (Mark Custom) laying down some tracks. I heard about it late and he had already gone. Seeing that I am familiar with the studio (after recording sessions) I called to ask if it were true and the engineer confirmed. Would have loved to been able to meet him.
    From what I heard tickets are $90, 150, and $250. The exchange I wouldn't know. I would go just to see how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall!
