Sadly, one of Rock’s most talented drummers is dead.
Ginger Baker, *August 19, 1939, former drummer of CREAM and sometimes enfant terrible, died yesterday aged 80 in a hospital in SE England.
Just 2 weeks ago, I saw the documentary “Beware of Mr. Baker” and I can recommend it!
Here is what Mick, Paul and … had to say:
Sad news hearing that Ginger Baker has died, I remember playing with him very early on in Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated. He was a fiery but extremely talented and innovative drummer. pic.twitter.com/tZg3IGwP4Z

Ginger Baker, great drummer, wild and lovely guy. We worked together on the 'Band on the Run' album in his ARC Studio, Lagos, Nigeria. Sad to hear that he died but the memories never will. X Paul pic.twitter.com/Rne4tn6A2i
