Cream were a pioneering 1960s British rock supergroup, consisting of bassist/singer Jack Bruce, drummer Ginger Baker, and guitarist/singer Eric Clapton.
Their sound was characterised by a hybrid of blues rock, hard rock and psychedelic rock, combining psychedelia-themed lyrics, Eric Clapton's blues guitar playing, Jack Bruce's operatice voice and prominent bass playing and Ginger Baker's jazz-influenced drumming.
