A Cream Experience

I went to see a ‘tribute’ band last night playing Hendrix and Cream numbers.

Stratocasters and chords
Bright lights and riffs
Drum solos and every note
Just that bit too perfect.
Nostalgia drifted through decibels.
It certainly wasn’t Clapton
But even so I clapped.
For one mad moment I thought
The smoke machine showed
The ghost of Jimi Hendrix –
Grinning.
