RIP Ginger Baker

An absolute tour de force on the drums. Cream was one of the best bands ever, and he leant his skills to a variety of artists. We’ll miss you Mr. Baker.

Mrs. E and I were lucky enough to get in for one of the Cream reunion shows at MSG in '05. Of course they played Toad and I've got to say that, hands down, it was the best drum solo I've ever seen.

Embarrassingly, I thought Ginger passed away a few years ago. Cream...think of the music created by just 3 musicians...wow. (((RIP)))

Indeed. Hard year for musicians thus far. One of my top five drummers
