"Now I’m back home for a while with a smile
And my garden’s full of summer weather
Gonna keep on with the work tho it sometimes hurts
When you’re looking at the fields of forever
Looking at the fields of forever"
- Jack Bruce, Field of Forever - Silver Rails (Bruce/Brown)
Bass Player will memorialize Jack in a tribute at Bass Player LIVE at SIR Studios in Hollywood on November 8th.
