Default Ginger Baker RIP

Ginger Baker has died at age 80.

Cream really excited me when I "discovered" them in the late 60's.

Only EC left now.

In 1967, the juke box in my university canteen appeared to contain only one record - 'Sunshine Of Your Love' by Cream - which played continually, as if on a loop.

I wonder how Jack Bruce and Ginger will get on with each other in Rock & Roll Heaven?

Here's a classic interview with Ginger from 1970.

A jazz drummer who fit no mold. It's sad to hear he's gone.

My favourite rock drummer, (Although he'd dispute that...), love the sound of his drums, his incredible timing

I never much followed Cream, was into other stuff from that era. A while back I caught a video concert from Albert Hall (?) and found myself totally transfixed and blown away by Ginger Baker specifically. I mean, wow! I immediately bought some albums and setup some streams. When I saw the post here the other day I listened to Cream all day in Ginger's honor. Rock on wherever you are, Ginger Baker! Respect.

Great Drummer, indeed! Second one after John Bonham imho . Did he really invent the drum solo, as per the live recordings of Toad?
R.I.P Mr. Baker!
