Goodbye Pete Brown you Battered Piblokto!

Another sad day. Pete Brown the Beat poet, lyricist, singer, musician and all-round crazy man has departed the building!

This is the guy who worked with Jack Bruce to create some of Cream’s best songs – White Room, Sunshine of Your Love, I Feel Free. He was there at the beginning with Alexis Korner putting his poems to music. Full of crouching tigers and shards of light.

I used to see him perform with Chris Spedding in nThe Battered Ornaments and then later with Piblokto. Always a character. Always larger than life.

Another great loss!!
