Eric Clapton Snags Three Spots On Rolling Stone "Supergroups" Poll

Eric Clapton has earned his way into three spots -- including Number One - on the Rolling Stone Reader's Rock List for Supergroups. Clapton tops the list with Cream, snagging 7th place with Derek & the Dominoes -- which featured the late Duane Allman, and rounded out the Top Ten with Blind Faith which included Cream drummer Ginger Baker and Steve Winwood.

Jack Bruce credits Baker with the original idea to form Cream in 1966: "I did play briefly with Eric with John Mayall, but he left the band, and then I left the band, and I joined Manfred Mann for a while, to pay the rent. Ginger had the idea of Cream, and he approached Eric, and Eric said that he would love to do it, but only if I was in the band, and I was the singer, so that was how it came about."
