Perhaps this is why he can't remain civil with Ginger.


Cream's Jack Bruce: 'Fuck off, Led Zeppelin, you're crap'

Jack Bruce isn't impressed with Jimmy Page's guitar playing
Former Cream bassist Jack Bruce has described Led Zeppelin as "crap".

Bruce, who reformed Cream with original members Eric Clapton and Ginger
Baker for a series of shows in 2005, also slated Led Zeppelin guitarist
Jimmy Page.

Speaking to Classic Rock Bruce said: "Everybody talks about Led Zeppelin
[reforming], and they played one fucking gig - one fucking lame gig - while
Cream did weeks of gigs [during their 2005 reunion]; proper gigs, not just a
lame gig like Zeppelin did, with all the [vocal] keys lowered and
everything. We played everything in the original keys.

"Fuck off, Zeppelin, you're crap. You've always been crap and you'll never
be anything else. The worst thing is that people believe the crap that
they're sold. Cream is 10 times the band that Led Zeppelin is."

The bassist then stated that Page is incomparable with Cream guitarist Eric
Clapton, describing the Led Zeppelin guitarist as "crap".
