THE BIOGRAPHY OF ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BANDS SINCE THE BEATLES
Dave Thompson, author of Virgin's acclaimed Red Hot Chili Peppers biography, takes a new and very detailed look at the creation of one of the world's most influential bands. After all the streets of London had been covered in 'Clapton Is God' tributes, the three top rock instrumentalists of their time, all stars in their own right, came together to form Cream. Cream went on to become the first band to break open
the lucrative US market by dint of their live shows alone.
Updated to include details of their recent tour, this definitive account goes on the road with them then and now, day by relentlessly hedonistic day.
“Essential for all Cream devotees and any true rock'n'roll fan”
“Biographies of Cream have been rare and this latest is impeccably timed”
“Thompson's is an unbiased account of this exciting time, when the boundaries of music were being blown apart”
“Packed with drama and extraordinary anecdotes ... essential reading”
