Presented on Mystery Lyrics 25th April 2017 _"He's ten years old, he watches the trains until they're gone"_ Today we're looking for a band formed around a Scottish musician, singer and songwriter known primarily for his contributions to the British supergroup Cream, which also included guitarist-singer Eric Clapton and drummer Ginger Baker. In March 2011 Rolling Stone readers selected him as the eighth greatest bass guitarist of all time. "Most musicians would have a very hard time distinguishing themselves if they wound up in a band with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker," the magazine said at the time, "but (he) was so gifted on the bass that he did it with ease." "It is yet another about-face for (him), singing nine more sets of lyrics by Peter Brown, with guitarist Hughie Burns and keyboardist Tony Hymas getting their chance to participate in the songwriting; it's basically well-performed pop with jazz overtones that has the voice of (him) adding the blues. A strange but highly musical and important outing." Joe Viglione The band also included drummer Simon Phillips , who gave the greatest drum solo I have ever heard live when I saw this band live in 1977 . [Jack Bruce Band](// [Johnny B '77](
