 The egos involved in keeping one of the world’s first supergroups powered was astronomical. One guy was a cantankerous madman, another continuously tried to wrestle control of the group and another was called “God” by his fans. Did anyone really expect the band to last more than a couple of years?

From the start, those egos clashed. Eric Clapton came to the group as its main attraction. Star-making gigs with the Yardbirds and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers sealed his reputation as one of his generation’s premier guitarists. Surprisingly, he wasn’t the problem. Bassist Jack Bruce (a member of, among others, British blues-rockers Blues Incorporated, Manfred Mann, and the Bluesbreakers) and drummer Ginger Baker (who played with the Graham Bond Organisation) were constantly fighting.

Recording of Cream’s first two albums – 1966’s Fresh Cream and the following year’s Disraeli Gears – went relatively smoothly, yielding hits like “I Feel Free” and “Sunshine of Your Love.” But by the time they got around to recording 1968’s Wheels of Fire, which was released in July, things had taken a more abusive turn, with each member trying to overpower the others by sheer instrumental volume.

The studio half of Wheels of Fire – a double LP that includes a live disc – was recorded during three separate sessions. The concert songs were culled from two performances in San Francisco in March. Relationships had deteriorated so much by that point that Bruce and Baker would frequently argue, on- and off-stage. At one show, Clapton was so fed up with their battles that he walked off. Rumor has it that neither of his bandmates noticed.

So finally, on July 10, 1968, after mulling the idea for almost a year, Clapton announced that Cream were breaking up. But the band actually stuck around for most of the rest of the year, playing a farewell tour (which culminated in a final gig at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Nov. 26) and recording three songs for one last album, Goodbye, which was released in 1969 and filled out with a handful of live cuts from the farewell tour.

The band’s final show was aired on the BBC in January 1969. But by then, they were pretty much just going through the motions to fulfill whatever contractual obligations were left. At their peak, which is scattered among their first three great albums, Cream laid the foundations for bands to go harder, faster and louder. It turned into a bit of a mess during the last months, with egos colliding and amps cranked. But it really couldn’t have ended any other way.

CHEER 1990

Hard-rock and heavy-metal were born in 1968 thanks to the efforts of a trio who relocated to San Francisco. In that year Blue Cheer released two albums with a terrifying sound that staked it all on deafening amplification of the guitar riffs of Leigh Stephens and the bass riffs Dickie Peterson. The group belonged to the psychedelic platoon ("blue cheer" was a name for LSD) and played out its acid trip with a vengeance. Their atomic version of Summertime Blues (1968) by Eddie Cochran, followed by the anthem Out Of Focus (1968), made them famous.

Howdy! Austin 1973 [Kaktus Records 10K06R02, 1CD]
Live at Armadillo World Headquarters, Austin, TX; October 26, 1973. Very good to excellent soundboard; with a bit of hiss.

It’s just tragic that Frank Zappa died at the relatively young age of 52 in 1993. And it’s one of rock’s could-have-beens had Zappa lived on - who knows what types of music he would create. As it is, it’s already impossible to pigeonhole Zappa’s show - there’s a bit of everything; everything sort of gels and the only thing anyone can say is that the man’s a true national treasure.

The Real Frank Zappa Book has many memorable quotes and here’s one:

I want to know three things when I go on stage: i) that my equipment is working, ii) that the band members absolutely know the material, so I don’t have to worry about them, and iii) that the rhythm section can hear what I’m playing and that it has some “concept” of it so it can help build the improvisation.

And this is what Arthur Barrow, who was Zappa’s bassist in the late ’70s and early ’80s, wrote:

Rehearsals were grueling and wonderful. We rehearsed at least 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, for about 6 weeks or so before a tour. Rehearsals usually got started around mid-afternoon, with the Clonemeister leading for the first half of the day, then Frank would arrive and take over for the remainder of the day…

On the first day of rehearsals for the last tour I did, Frank brought in a list of about 200 songs that he wanted us to learn. I knew right away that it would be impossible for us to learn that many songs in the amount of time we had. I also knew from past experience that when Frank called for us to play a tune from the list and it sounded bad, he would often remove it from the list. If the tune in question happened to be one that the band liked and wanted to continue to work on, the band would be begging him to please give a little more time to work on it some more and get it right. I think he used it as a threat to try to motivate the band.

And now… on with the show.
