Ginger Baker, legendary drummer of Cream, dies at 80 - CNN
Peacefully in bed is surrounded by family is not a bad way to go. RIP
probably the only thing he ever did peacefully based on the stories! Ha
Did you watch the documentary? What a guy. Pounded on the interviewer. Rip
He appears to have had a very 'full' and adventurous life.
Thanks for the music Mr. Baker. RIP.
Very distinctive and innovative playing style. He influenced and inspired a lot of drummers. RIP Ginger.
A true percussion legend who lived quite the life. Oh to be a fly on the wall, or Eric, when Ginger and Jack got going. RIP
I think you mean Ginger and EVERYONE else lol.
thank you cream . RIP
Wow !!!! Another one bites the dust. RIP
A rock drummer that lived to the ripe age of 80. Who'd have thought.
Where Charlie Watts was all about the high-hat, Ginger was all about the kick-drum and the thud. It gave a primal feel to his work. Of course, I say this being only familiar with his work in Cream and Blind Faith, and having no sense of what he did with Fela Kuti and others.
The CNN story talks about "Alexis Corner". It's Korner, guys, Korner.
Here's the BBC announcement and article. Moon, Bonham, Mitch Mitchell, now Baker last of an era
Cream drummer Ginger Baker dies aged 80
The kind of drummer that made guitar players stop listening to Clapton from time to time, and get lost in the rhythms.
Sad day indeed. One of the all time greats!
