Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Janet Godfrey was the second wife and some-time writing partner of bassist Jack Bruce. Together, Godfrey and Bruce had two sons, Jonas (Jo) Bruce, who grew up to play keyboards in his father's band and formed a band AfroCelts, and Malcolm Bruce, who grew up to play the guitar with his father and played with Ginger Baker's son, Kofi. Jonas died in 1997 from respiratory problems. Jack Bruce and Janet Godfrey were married in 1964 and divorced in 1973. During Bruce's tenure with Cream, Godfrey co-wrote two songs that were included on their debut album Fresh Cream. She wrote "Sleepy Time Time" with her husband Jack, and "Sweet Wine" with drummer Ginger Baker. Of the writing partnership, Bruce later remarked "Ginger and Pete were at my flat trying to work on a song but it wasn't happening. My wife Janet then got with Ginger and they wrote "Sweet Wine" while I started working with Pete."show more
