Vernon Reid Starstruck Playing With Cream Legend Jack Bruce

(Classic Rock) Living Colour founder Vernon Reid says he can't shake being starstruck when he's playing with Cream icon Jack Bruce but insists it's no bad thing.

The pair are the driving force behind jazz-rock supergroup Spectrum Road, along with John Medeski and Cindy Blackman Santana. Their self-titled debut album was released yesterday and the band hit the road this weekend.

"The 'Oh my God, I'm playing with Jack Bruce' thought never goes away. And that's fine. It's okay to stay a little bit in awe of these people," Guitarist Reid tells Music Radar. :You get past the whole legend thing, but then you don't. I revere Jack Bruce but I also see him as a dude. He's fun, and he's humble too. He doesn't want to be this guy that people have to bow down to. That would be a horrible way to carry yourself, I would think."
