Jack Bruce, bassist and founder of seminal rock band Cream, has passed away at the age of 71.

It is with great sadness that we, Jack’s family, announce the passing of our beloved Jack: husband, father, granddad, and all round legend. The world of music will be a poorer place without him, but he lives on in his music and forever in our hearts.

The announcement was made this morning, confirming that he passed surrounded by family at his home in Suffolk.
