wow he's off the deep end now! http://www.classicrockmagazine.com/page/classicrock?entry=led_zeppelin_you_re_crap Jack Bruce (above) picked up the Classic Album gong for Creams Disraeli Gears at last night's Classic Rock awards. After the ceremony Dave Ling grabbed Bruce for a quickfire interview and was stunned when the legendary bassist launched into an extraordinary anti-Led Zeppelin tirade. Here's a transcript of what transpired The million dollar question: Are Cream going to do anything again? Oh yeah, Im sure we will. But well have Todd Rundgren [whos just walked by] in the band by then. Its good news that there might be more from Cream. Well, the trouble is that Im doing so many amazing things on my own. Cream is just a band from many, many years ago, and we did do something [referring to the reunion shows in 2005] Everybody talks about Led Zeppelin, and they played one ****ing gig one ****ing lame gig while Cream did weeks of gigs; proper gigs, not just a lame gig like Zeppelin did, with all the [vocal] keys lowered and everything. We played everything in the original keys. [Becoming animated]: **** off, Zeppelin, youre crap. Youve always been crap and youll never be anything else. The worst thing is that people believe the crap that theyre sold. Cream is 10 times the band that Led Zeppelin is. Thats a bold opinion. What? Youre gonna compare Eric Clapton with that ****ing Jimmy Page? Would you really compare that? To be fair, theyre different kinds of player, arent they? No! Erics good and Jimmys crap. And with that I rest my case. Are you having a good time this evening? Sure. Yeah. I always have a good time, but especially tonight. Especially tonight? So do you go to a lot of awards ceremonies? No. I dont go to anything. Im not allowed out. Im not even allowed in. So what made you come along to this? My wife and my kids insisted. Why did they insist? Do they like magazine? They like the magazine, yeah. I like your magazine, too. But that doesnt mean I have to go along to your awards. So who have you spent quality time with? I met a lot of old friends. Jeff Beck. Gary Moore loads and loads of people that I dont often see. Its nice to catch up with them again. Ozzys here and its really nice. The atmosphere is quite chilled-out. Its excellent. No pressure. Its quite different to the Grammys, though the Oscars are good. So Disraeli Gears is now 41 years old. Is it really? Wow. It doesnt seem like 41 years? No. It seems much longer than that. It must be an album youre still proud of? Of course. Albums like that are timeless. If you make something great and Disraeli Gears is great, in its own way it lasts forever. Nobody says Beethovens Fifth Symphony sounds dated, do they?
