Pete Brown was a Londoner and a veteran of the underground scene. Born in 1940, he first came to prominence as a poet.
He was just 14 when his first poem appeared in “Evergreen Revue” in the US. Then in the early sixties he worked alongside another British poet Mike Horowitz. His direct involvement with rock music came when he was asked to form a songwriting partnership with Jack Bruce to write lyrics for Cream and the partnership proceeded to produce the lyrics for many of their finest songs: “Wrapping Paper”, “I Feel Free”, “Sunshine Of Your Love” and “White Room”.
