    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

    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.

    The kind of drummer that made guitar players stop listening to Clapton from time to time, and get lost in the rhythms.
