3. Cream (1993)
Eric Clapton initially had very little interest in reuniting with Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce at the 1993 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. "I have to be honest and say that until very recently I didn't believe in this institution at all," he said when Cream accepted their award. "It seemed to me that rock & roll should never be respectable. And then a friend of mine, not so long ago, Robbie Robertson, pointed out to minor and major miracles take place in here. It deeply moved me. I looked at this from a different point of view and learned that a lot can be gained by coming here tonight. A lot has been gained. I've been reunited with two people that I lover very dearly. It's very moving. Yesterday, we played together for the first time in 25 years. It was pretty amazing." The trio played 'Sunshine of Your Love," "Crossroads" and "Born Under a Bad Sign." It would be another 12 years before they did it again.
