(Book). As a member of Cream, Jack Bruce co-wrote and sang such major '60s hits as "Sunshine of Your Love" and "White Room." But he was a singular talent who wanted to be a pioneer, not just a pop star, and he was never happy resting on his reputation. His has been an often troubled life heroin addiction, management rip-offs, family tragedy, and a failed liver transplant all of which he speaks about frankly in this book, telling a story that is sometimes inspirational, sometimes bleak, and always honest.
