Rock trio Cream cancelled plans for a long-awaited reunion tour last year (13) following a dispute between the bandmembers. The former bandmates - Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce - last reunited for a series of comeback concerts in London and New York in 2005, but it has now emerged they were hoping to hit the road again in late 2013 or 2014. However, Bruce has revealed the tour plans were scrapped following a spat between Clapton and Baker. He tells Rolling Stone, "I think last year or this year, everybody had agreed about doing it. But then I think Ginger upset Eric... He said something or did something, so it's not happening. It's always been like that. The first time it (a reunion) was mooted was when we were all 'indicted' to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And that was in '93. And what happened in 2005. That's the way it goes. It's fine. I think we said what we had to say at the time. And it was nice to have that little comeback. For me, that was just about right." Reports suggest the previous Cream reunion came to a halt because of a bust-up between Clapton and Baker.
