About the Author
Pete Brown was a Beat poet in the 1960s before going on to co-write songs with Cream and later Jack Bruce, as well as working with many others.
Top customer reviews
The book is 99% about Pete Brown's bands, his lovers, his music, his Jewishness, his very close relationship with Dick Heckstall-Smith (mentioned a lot) and his family.
I found this book not as interesting as I'd expected, however some historic musical events were covered and these sort of things are what I like to read about so I can give it 2 stars for that.
Conclusion: If you are wanting an insiders view about Cream this is NOT the book. If you want to read a book about Pete Brown and his personal musical journey and life then this may be the book for you.
(I always hate to be negative about individual's creations, but Pete's choice of cover is a real stinker!! Don't let it put you off!!)
A number of non-approved events and artistes - Punk generally, Portishead, Elvis Costello,
Leonard Cohen and others, which seems mean spirited - what have they ever done to Mr. Brown ?
If you can't say anything good then why say it says old saying.
Still love songs for Jack - Harmonious Tailoring.
