2. Cream

Key Members: Eric Clapton (Yardbirds), Ginger Baker (Graham Bond Organization) and Jack Bruce (Manfred Mann)

Signature Songs: "White Room," "Sunshine of Your Love" and "I'm So Glad"

Current Status: Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker were bandmates before Cream and had major tension prior to Cream even starting. Things got worse once Cream got going and Eric Clapton pulled the plug in 1968. They reformed for a handful of shows in 2005, but old age didn't stop Bruce and Baker from getting back into their old ways. They even had a squabble onstage at Madison Square Garden. Bruce's death in 2014 killed any chance of any more Cream activity.
