Cream formed in 1966 when Ginger Baker and Eric Clapton formed an experimental psychedelic-blues band with Jack Bruce as their bassist. Their debut album, Fresh Cream, reached number six in the UK and 39 in the US. Their third album, Wheels of Fire, became the world's first platinum-selling double album, with 15 million records sold, a Grammy Hall of Fame album, and a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Jann Wenner credited Cream as the first rock and roll supergroup, which was formed by Clapton and Baker due to their prior success in other bands.
Cream is a legendary band with four albums in three years, and their legacy is still potent.
