Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce InTheStudio For Cream Anniversary

InTheStudio recently celebrated the 45th anniversary of Cream's "Disraeli Gears" will interviews with Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce.

Clapton recalls to the show's host Redbeard, the band's perception of themselves during their rise to stardom was surprisingly humble.

"We didn't have all this mania that exists now for the '60s. Cream was just a little known band from England, actually, a lot less known than The Who, and we weren't really aware of what we were."

On an ironic note, Jack Bruce reminds us of the competitive cycling world's long dangerous history of doping decades before deposed American cycling champ Lance Armstrong would confess his indiscretions. In 1967 Bruce was discussing with Clapton and drummer Ginger Baker the tragic sudden death of UK World Tour winner Tommy Simpson as he attempted to defend his title (a first for the UK) in the following year's race.

The cause of death would later be determined to be amphetamine overdose, but a Cream roadie's malapropism after overhearing the band's conversation ended up becoming Cream's title for their breakthrough second album forty-five years ago. You can stream the special here.
