Pete Brown is an English poet and singer/songwriter. During the mid 60s, he was doing readings in jazz and blues clubs in London and making lots of friends along the way. He met Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker at the Marquee Club, right around the time they were forming the super group, Cream. Being very impressed with Pete's poetry, they asked him to write some lyrics for Cream and the rest is history. Pete co- wrote classics such as Sunshine of your Love, I feel Free, White Room and many more. Pete was also fronted his own jazz, blues, funk fusion band called Battered Ornaments. Today Pete continues multi-tasking with music, poetry, film making and writing. I caught up with the talented man.
