(Gibson) It's likely there will be no more Cream reunions, says bassist Jack Bruce. Speaking recently to M Music & Musicians, the rock veteran said, "I'm only in irregular contact with Eric [Clapton], but I know we have mutual respect for each other's work. I don't believe there will be further Cream reunions. However, I never thought the first one would happen, so there you go."

Bruce, whose new album, Silver Rails, marks his first solo record in a decade, also talked about writing the Cream epic "Sunshine of Your Love" "One night I was working with my lyricist and friend Pete Brown, and we just hadn't come up with anything good," Bruce said.

"Suddenly I picked up my double bass and played the 'Sunshine of Your Love' riff. Pete looked out the window at the glow in the sky and wrote, 'It's getting near dawn.' I took the riff, melody and lyrics to a band rehearsal and Eric wrote the turnaround chords and we had a song." more on this story
