The breakup of Cream in late 1968 had consequences that rippled across the rock music world -- in its wake was the direct formation of such bands as Blind Faith (whose tragedy was they never had a chance to actually become a band) and Ginger Baker's Air Force, as well as the rich solo careers of members Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce. And it yielded -- by way of Cream associate and producer Felix Pappalardi -- something of a successor band in 1969 in the form of Mountain.
