In Memoriam: Musicians Who Died In 2014

As 2014 is just about at an end, we take a moment at Geeks Of Doom to remember the fallen musicians who left us this year. A large array of heavyweights, cult heroes, pioneering figures, and sentimental favorites are among those who have left us in a physical sense, but the memories that they made in the past and the ones that each of their fans have in regards to them will never leave.

A list of some of our (and probably yours as well) fallen heroes is below.

Jack Bruce

Bassist Jack Bruce, best remembered for his stint in Cream, the 1960s English power trio which took the sounds of the blues and electrified them to the hilt, ultimately unconsciously coining the term “supergroup,” died today at his home in Suffolk. He was 71.

The news was confirmed by Bruce’s publicist, who also mentioned that the musician’s family was by his side in his final moments. The news was also posted to Bruce’s official Facebook page this morning. No cause of death has been revealed at this time, though it was reported that he had suffered from liver disease.

$5 MP3 Album Deal: Cream ‘Goodbye’

Cream Goodbye

Goodbye, the final original release by the Brtish hard rocking trio Cream, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.00.

Cream epitomized the term “supergroup” as their thunderous sounds via the lead guitar of Eric Clapton, and the bottom end scud attack of Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker (on bass/vocals and drums respectively) continue to thrill and inspire classic rock heads to this very day. By 1968, Cream was one of the biggest bands on both continents, with their nicely blended sonic mix of electric blues, rock and roll, and psychedelia. By 1969, the release of Goodbye became their swan song as a group. Even though the band found much success, internal tensions had a hard time keeping the three men together, let alone cordial. Goodbye is a mix of live and studio tracks, some well known: “Badge,” “Politician,” and “Sitting on Top of the World” and equally strong yet less remembered tracks like “Doing The Scrapyard Thing” and “What A Bringdown” round out the collection nicely. A fitting end to another one of Britain’s A-list rock and roll groups from the class of the late 1960s.
