Jack Bruce Tribute Concert to Feature Ginger Baker, Joss Stone, More..............

By Marissa G. Muller

"Last October, Cream founding member and bassist Jack Bruce passed away after a battle with liver disease. A year later, his musicians friends are throwing a party in his honor.

The tribute concert, which will take place in London, benefits Bruce’s favorite charity East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) and features some familiar faces, among them Ginger Baker, Joss Stone, Phil Manzanera, Ian Anderson, Vernon Reid, Mark King, Liam Bailey, Fiona Bevan and Jack Bruce’s Big Blues Band, to start.

Additional special guests have yet to be announced. It’s worth noting that Eric Clapton, who played in Cream along with Bruce and Baker, has not been announced for the tribute.

“Jack Bruce was one of my biggest heroes when I was growing up–a consummate musician, composer and all round rock genius with a killer voice and one of the most creative and versatile musical minds of his generation,” said the concert’s music director Nitin Sawhney in a statement. “Being asked to musically direct this show celebrating his life and work is a great honour and privilege and I look forward to working with an amazing lineup of contemporary artists and rock legends.”

The show takes place Oct. 24 at the Roundhouse. Members of the venue will be able to purchase tickets tomorrow, March 17 and the general public can purchase tickets the following day, March 18.

Bruce died Oct. 25 in Suffolk, England, at the age of 71. He had been battling liver disease."
