All of my musical heroes are getting older and it's only natural that they are going to start to drop off. Dio was a big one for me. He seemed totally immortal. So this morning I see that Jack Bruce has passed at age 71. He was such a groundbreaking bassist, influencing the likes of Geddy Lee, John Enwistle and Chris Squire. He still played amazingly in Cream's 2005 reunion, as evidenced below. RIP Jack Bruce.
