- Billy Cox: “JACK BRUCE… I’ll have to sit and deal with this for a while… This is very sad for me… As a bass player, he was my hero… He could do it all… I will just have to remind myself over and over again that guys like Jack don’t die; they will always be around for their musical contributions are timeless… Jack Bruce playing on the bottom is what helpedCream rise to the top, during an era that was defined by its music… Blessings throughout eternity, Jack Bruce.”
