From its creation, Cream was faced with some fundamental problems that would later lead to its dissolution in November The antagonism between Bruce and Baker created tensions in the band. Clapton also felt that the members of the band did not listen to each other enough. Equipment during these years had also improved; new Marshall amplifier stacks produced more power, and Jack Bruce pushed the volume levels higher, creating tension for Baker, who would have trouble competing with roaring stacks. Clapton spoke of a concert during which he stopped playing and neither Baker nor Bruce noticed.
Cream decided that they would break up in May during a tour of the US.

Cream were eventually persuaded to do one final album. The album, the appropriately titled Goodbye , was recorded in late and released in early , after the band had broken up. Cream's "farewell tour" consisted of 22 shows at 19 venues in the US from 4 October to 4 November , and two final farewell concerts at the Royal Albert Hall on 25 and 26 November Both shows were sold out and attracted more attention than any other Cream concert, but their performance was regarded by many as below standard.
Baker himself said of the concerts: "It wasn't a good gig Cream was better than that We knew it was all over. We knew we were just finishing it off, getting it over with. Blind Faith , a band that included both Clapton and Baker, was formed after the demise of Cream, following an attempt by Clapton to recruit Steve Winwood into Cream in the hope that he would help act as a buffer between Bruce and Baker.

All three members continued to explore new musical ideas and partnerships, play concerts and record music for over four decades after ending Cream. In , Cream were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and re-formed to perform at the induction ceremony. Bruce and Baker said in later interviews that they were, indeed, interested in touring as Cream. At Clapton's request, Cream reunited for a series of four shows, on 2, 3, 5, and 6 May at the Royal Albert Hall in London, the venue of their final concerts in Tickets for all four shows sold out in under an hour.
Inspired by the success of the reunion, the band agreed to an additional set of three shows at the Madison Square Garden in New York City, from 24—26 October In February , Cream received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of their contribution to, and influence upon, modern music. On the day prior to the Grammy ceremony, Bruce made a public statement that more one-off performances of Cream had been planned: multiple dates in a few cities, similar to the Royal Albert Hall and Madison Square Garden shows.
However, this story was refuted by both Clapton and Baker, first by Clapton in a Times article from April The article stated that when asked about Cream, Clapton said: "No. Not for me. We did it and it was fun.
But life is too short. I've got lots of other things I would rather do, including staying at home with my kids. The thing about that band was that it was all to do with its limits These comments were far more specific and explosive than Clapton's, as they were centred around his relationship with Jack Bruce. Ginger said, "When he's Dr. Jekyll, he's fine It's when he's Mr. Hyde that he's not. And I'm afraid he's still the same. I tell you this — there won't ever be any more Cream gigs, because he did Mr.
Hyde in New York last year. Oh, he shouted at me on stage, he turned his bass up so loud that he deafened me on the first gig. What he does is that he apologises and apologises, but I'm afraid, to do it on a Cream reunion gig, that was the end. He killed the magic, and New York was like It was just a get through the gig, get the money sort of deal. I was absolutely amazed. I mean, he demonstrated why he got the sack from Graham Bond and why Cream didn't last very long on stage in New York. I didn't want to do it in the first place simply because of how Jack was.
I have worked with him several times since Cream, and I promised myself that I would never work with him again. When Eric first came up with the idea, I said no, and then he phoned me up and eventually convinced me to do it. I was on my best behaviour and I did everything I could to make things go as smooth as possible, and I was really pleasant to Jack. Baker and Bruce appeared on stage in London when Baker was awarded a lifetime achievement award by Zildjian. The band decided against it and this was confirmed by Bruce in a letter to the editor of the Jack Bruce fanzine, The Cuicoland Express , dated 26 September Dear Marc, We were going to do this tribute concert for Ahmet when it was to be at the Royal Albert Hall but decided to pass when it was moved to the O2 Arena and seemed to be becoming overly commercial.

She had him by the tie, jerking so hard his head bobbed back and forth. His eyes closed, while tears, huge, nickel sized tears ran from beneath their lids and found a wrinkle in his cheeks to scoot downward. He suddenly and unexpectedly shot up from his chair and her hands slid off his silk tie. He was out the office door at a run before her brain cleared even slightly. Three of the five were secretaries cleaning out their cubicles. With their normal protocol still intact, they paid no attention to Joseph Carter and Carlee. She suspected Carter had informed all others of the state of affairs before it came her turn.

She hesitated on the street, her eyes blinded by her loss. Her first instinct was to have the door attendant hail a taxi so she could go home to her apartment, but there was no longer a door attendant. An empty taxi was waiting in front of a building. She staggered to it, opened the back door, and sank into the seat. The driver looked at her as she showed him her High-Tech Advantage credit card that all High-Tech executives used for taxi service.
A different taxi driver had accepted the card earlier that morning. This driver sneered at it. No good! You, get out. No ride free.
