R.I.P. Ginger Baker

2019-10-07 by Divaman | 26 Comments
Ginger Baker, the former drummer of the iconic British rock band Cream, has died at age 80. Although the exact cause of death has not been revealed, Baker suffered from a variety of health problems in recent years. He had open heart surgery in 2016, and last month, his family put out a statement that he was critically ill in the hospital. Baker was named as #3 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 Greatest Drummers of All Time.

He was clearly one of the greats. Clapton is the only Cream member left now.

You ever have those artists that you just internally believe are immortal and a constant being that simply lives because it must?

That's how I felt about Ginger Baker and idk how to feel right now.

Yup, know the feeling. That was Lemmy for me. Imagine Lemmy and Ginger on a band playing rock 'n' roll? Total chaos.

@manosg Funny enough Ginger Baker played for Hawkwind on one of their albums, which was Lemmy's ex-band before forming Motorhead. About the closest those two ever got.

80 is a pretty good score for a guy who smoked a million cigarettes a day
