    Eric Clapton,Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker are making plans to get together again for several reunion concerts in 2005. So far they have promised to appear at London's Royal Albert Hall. I believe for two shows? The engagement will last about a week and mark the first time in 11 years that the group has performed together. They played at their 1993 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Not counting that lone appearance,they have not performed together for 35 years. I don't know about you all;but to me, this is a dream come true! I can't wait to see the movie. I can't wait to see the sunshine of your love.

    While I dig Cream and am intrigued, I hope not to be let down by it all. Clapton has been a major let down for the past 15 years IMHO

    I'm surprised, that after the death of his son, he went on to tour at all. And I would hazard a guess that even Slow Hand has suffered the ravages of age.

    But... Cream! Getting together again! Thanks for the info We... Ginger Baker is my all-time favorite. Well, after young Ted that is.

    Yes, they probably are, Doc. As much as you remain a mystery to me... that's how much I think of you as a friend. I hope it stays that way.

    Hey! Maybe we can find a kind and gentle heart to raise some money for us rich hippies to find a way over there to see this awesome concert.

    In the meanstwhile... I'll wait for the DVD's.

    I was thinking the same thing Luv. In fact,the last time I saw Paul Rogers perform he was standing bare foot on the stage of the Baltimore Arena singing "All Right Now" during the winter of 72. Perhaps Queen will call this reunion the "were only in it for the money tour".

    My first love, and love of my life, and I share an "our song": Badge. We made love for the first time in his parents' car (i.e., we both lost our virginity) to this song. My first true love was a drummer, too. I would love to see this reunion. Sadly, I'm in New England, not England. The upside: your post reminded me of how much I loved my first true love. It was all magnificient! Enjoy the Cream reunion.

    peace 'n love,

    One of my all time favorites....Tales of Brave Ulysess

    Cream - Tales of Brave Ulysses Lyrics
    By eric clapton and martin sharp

    You thought the leaden winter would bring you down forever,
    But you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun.

    And the colors of the sea blind your eyes with trembling
    And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave ulysses:
    How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing,
    For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white
    laced lips.

    And you see a girl?s brown body dancing through the turquoise,
    And her footprints make you follow where the sky loves the sea.
    And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body,
    Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind.

    The tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers,
    And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the

    Her name is aphrodite and she rides a crimson shell,
    And you know you cannot leave her for you touched the distant
    With tales of brave ulysses; how his naked ears were tortured
    By the sirens sweetly singing.

    The tiny purple fishes run lauging through your fingers,
    And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the

    ROCK ON!!!!

    Sunshine of your love

    It's getting near dawn,
    When lights close their tired eyes.
    I'll soon be with you my love,
    To give you my dawn surprise.
    I'll be with you darling soon,
    I'll be with you when the stars start falling.

    I've been waiting so long
    To be where I'm going
    In the sunshine of your love.

    I'm with you my love,
    The light's shining through on you.
    Yes, I'm with you my love,
    It's the morning and just we two.
    I'll stay with you darling now,
    I'll stay with you till my seas are dried up.

    I've been waiting so long
    I've been waiting so long
    I've been waiting so long
    To be where I'm going
    In the sunshine of your love.
