Ginger Baker and Phil Manzanera lead the group
A special tribute concert took place at London’s Roundhouse on October 24 to mark the one-year anniversary of Jack Bruce‘s death.
The concert featured performances from a number of the Cream bassist’s friends and family, culminating in renditions of two of the band’s tracks, “Sunshine Of Your Love” and “We’re Going Wrong“.
Among the musicians who appeared at the end – which was also called Sunshine of Your Love – were Ginger Baker, Phil Manzanera, Ian Anderson, Living Colour’s Vernon Reid and Bruce’s daughter Aruba Red.
As reported on Rolling Stone, the event raised funds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

In a statement, Sunshine of Your Love musical director Nitin Sawhney said: “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.”
