69CreamCream were a 1960s British rock supergroup power trio consisting of bassist/singer Jack Bruce, drummer Ginger Baker, and guitarist/singer Eric Clapton.

You've got to be kidding me! Number 68! As someone else said they should be in the top 10! Especially considering their short life span. For better or worse they influenced heavy metal and hard rock. Along with Jimi Hendrix they set the stage for Led Zeppelin and all that followed. This is a joke!

Best rock. Power trio ever. All three musicians were influential. Back then every rock band wanted to be ad good ad they were. Played like giants to quote Carlos santana.

I agree with the comment above. They are the granddaddies of rock. Nobody has ever tried to emulate them. They are unique in rock music.

Cream should be in the top 10 best!
