    For the younger musicians on the forum, here's a perfect example of a Whites song.

    Unfortunately, Cream broke up before it could produce and record its famous White Album. John bought the rights from Cream and told Paul that he wrote all of the songs on it.

    The Cream got sour before the expiration date. Maybe the environment wasn't cool enough.

    Man-made global warming! You've proved it! Who would have known that the final proof was to be found in a Talk Bass forum? I am immediately nominating Jay2U for the 2018 Nobel Grease Prize!

    That'll be two major prizes in one year. I'm also nominated for the TalkBass "Most Posts Without Any Content" prize. I guess people really like me. :hyper:

    They were originally all Procul Harum songs, and Cream just made them a bit whiter. Some left over fandango-related material was later used by Queen. Britain, no longer the workshop of the world and affected by three day weeks (down from eight days in the 1960s when even nights were also days), couldn't produce enough original music. Emerson, Lake, and Palmer and Fairport Convention were particularly affected.

    And Paul was going to produce a Black album(mourning) in protest. Everything came to a head and John finally agreed to let Paul take song writing credit because all of John's songs would sound crappy if Paul didn't sing or play bass on them.

    He only let Paul take credit for the jovial songs that didn't fit Lennon's image as a stern member of the political {edit: politburo} and everyone thought Paul was a jolly Walrus because his girlfriend Jane Asher was known for making nice cakes, as well as being a ginger.

  9. Many know that Paul McCartney re-recorded many drum parts as he was unsatisfied with Ringo's drumming. What rarely gets reported is that George often re-recorded bass parts and Ringo often re-recorded guitar parts. John was too busy being a revolutionary to worry about the sound of the recordings.

  10. Cream broke up because they were whipped too much by management.


    TOO MUCH! That'll never come out right, now.

    Management needed to ease up and smooth over the rift between Ginger...


    and Baker


    Not to mention keep Clapton focused on music instead of his pet side project:


    YES, yes...

    Had management interceded instead of just whipping the trio too hard for too long, things might've turned out quite differently.

    1. The music industry is divided between treble and bass clef, that there is new law we will have to play C clef to return music to the middle ground.
    2. California has passed a law that all music will be played with seven sharps or seven flats because all notes are equal.
    3. In Vermont, music can only be played without sharps or flats, so welcome to the rleam of Dorian. Bernie Sanders said this a minor set back.

    back in the days of the cold war, KGB agents used double basses to hide spy-cams, as these were pretty big those days.

    As a corollary to point 1, I support the use of alto-native clefs.
  16. All people with perfect-pitch also happen to have a clef-chin.

    Bass players have deeper clef chins.

    Those talents were especially helpful after the Beatles broke up. Each former Beatle secretly played backup on many albums for different groups.

  19. After the Beatles broke up, George and Ringo recorded with Wings, Paul and George played with Ringo's All-star Band, and Paul and Ringo played on George's records. The Beatles didn't so much break up as they fired John Lennon for having an annoying girlfriend.
