  • Gloriana's Rachel Reinert Drew on Real-Life Betrayal to Perform Their New Single, "Trouble"

    Image Courtesy Warner Music NashvilleGloriana's Rachel Reinert didn't have to get into character to sing the trio's latest single, "Trouble," since the song came from her real-life experience. Rachel co-wrote the song with band mate Mike Gossin about an ex-boyfriend who cheated on her about two years ago.

    Rachel tells ABC News Radio, "We dated for a couple years. I ended up finding out that he was cheating on me, which I did suspect. He, of course, lied about it, which, shocker, right?"

    Like anybody, Rachel can be nice and sweet, but it's a different story when a guy does her wrong.

    "If you cross me, then then I'm gonna make you pay for it," Rachel adds.

    Mike and Gloriana's third member, Tom Gossin, had a bad feeling about Rachel's ex-boyfriend from the start, though.

    Says Mike, "We had suspicions about this guy, I'll leave it at that, that he was not the best fit for her."

    It was Mike who suggested Rachel channel her anger about the cheating into a song, and that's how "Trouble" was born. He's now very proud of her for being open and honest about what she went through.

    Mike explains, "The fact that she was cool enough to put down that wall and open herself up and put herself out there -- tell her story for people to hear and to relate to and hopefully help through a cheating situation, whether it's boy or girl, I think, is the best part of the whole situation."

    Gloriana's new single, "Trouble," hits the airwaves soon.

  • Jack Bruce, Bassist of Rock Band Cream Dead at 71

    Photo by Barbara Zanon/Redferns via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Jack Bruce, bass player for legendary supergroup Cream, has died.  He was 71.

    "It is with great sadness that we, Jack's family, announce the passing of our beloved Jack: husband, father, granddad, and all round legend," the landing page of Bruce's website read. "The world of music will be a poorer place without him, but he lives on in his music and forever in our hearts."

    Bruce formed Cream in the mid-sixties with guitarist Eric Clapton and drummer Ginger Baker; their name came from the notion all three of them were the "the cream of the crop" on their respective instruments. In addition to playing bass, Bruce also sang many of the band's best known tunes, and co-wrote classics like "Sunshine of Your Love," "White Room" and "I Feel Free."  Bruce's bass playing influenced a generation of musicians, including Sting, and Geddy Lee of Rush.

    "The sudden passing of Jack Bruce is terribly sad news," Lee told ABC News on Saturday. "One of the greatest rock bassists to ever live and a true and profound inspiration to countless musicians. He was one of my first bass heroes and was a major influence on my playing and my music. My heartfelt condolences to his family and fans."

    After Cream split in 1968, Bruce continued to play live, and release albums, both solo and as part of various groups, such as the blues trio West, Bruce & Laing. In 1993, for the first time in 25 years, Cream reformed to perform together: the occasion was their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    Cream reunited in 2005 at the Royal Albert Hall in London for a series of four shows, and for a single show at New York's Madison Square Garden. The shows were recorded and released as a live CD and DVD.

    In 2012, Bruce told ABC News that there had been talk of another reunion in 2013, but that it looked like it wasn't going to happen because Ginger Baker was once again on the outs with Eric Clapton. While Bruce said he knows that there's a lot of love for Cream, and he wouldn't be "churlish" enough to refuse to do a couple of reunion concerts at some point, he noted, "I've got so many other things happening and I don't wanna be a tribute band to myself."

    Bruce continued to tour and record; his most recent album, Silver Rails, came out this past March. Asked in 2012 what kept him going, Bruce told ABC News, "I think the music helps to keep you going and if you think about some of the great classical instrumentalists as well as uh, as well as conductors and so on, the music....you can tell after you finished a concert, you feel and look ten years younger, you know?  Everyone should be a musician!"

    Rolling Stone contributing editor Anthony DeCurtis told ABC News that while Bruce isn't always remembered for his singing, his unique vocal style helped define Cream's sound. "'Sunshine of Your Love,' 'White Room,' both of those songs have Jack Bruce in the lead vocal," notes DeCurtis. "Not only was he a great bass player, but he was a powerful, very emotional singer and he gave that group both a muscular sound and also a muscular delivery in the vocals."

    DeCurtis says that Bruce, along with Baker and Clapton, laid the groundwork for the music of the seventies. "Led Zeppelin, for example, is a band that was influenced by Cream," he says. "They defined a style of rock-and-roll that made you take rock-and-roll seriously because these guys were amazing players. They weren't just teenagers bashing around."
