He stood rock and roll drumming on its head. Also, he was the first R&R drummer to use a double bass setup, if I'm not mistaken. His powerful sound came with a surprisingly light touch. I have fond memories of losing myself in Cream's music back in the dark ages.

Yes, sad to hear. R&R was a very different world, back then. Glad I was there to enjoy it.

60's and 70's rock music was a delicious journey. So much innovation.

Sad to hear. With Rick Ocasek and Eddie Money going recently it’s been a tough month for music.

What great fun back then getting a new album, reading all the cool liner notes while listening the first time. And a double album? Too cool...

Ya double albums. Crosby Stills and Nash 4 way Street. I wore that out several times in the tape player of my 69 Dodge Dart GT Convertible. I remember all the controversy that surrounded the Beatles White album. And of course Pink Floyd with The Wall.
