Cream was never one of most favorite bands, but I liked them enough. But I recognized Baker as one of the great drummers in rock history. He was good. Rest In Peace.

Great drummer. He was one ornery guy. I saw an interview sometime back by a journalist who interviewed when he was living on his compound in South Africa. Unnecessarily unpleasant would be a kind description. Here it is:
Ginger Baker and Levon Helm top my list. RIP.

Yeah, man. That you did.
Live life on your terms, or be a slave to another.
RIP Mr. Baker.

A drumming hero of my youth! RIP Ginger, you were a great one.

SO sad to see you go. RIP.
Oddball summoned it up for me.
I almost wore out the grooves listening to Toad when it came out. RIP.

GREAT drumming there.
I am with you, Oddball and 0-0.
Sucks getting old and the circle of life continues....
This is my BOOMSTICK!

He made it to 80, really seems pretty remarkable; he always looked so skeletal. Big influence on a lot of drummers, I guess.
When you’re happy, you enjoy the music.

Yeah, I tried a while back to watch Beware of Mr. Baker but the editing made it impossible for me.

Thanks for the recommendation, oddball, we thoroughly enjoyed this.
Cream showed up when I was at "that age", I'm not sure any of us knew what to think. Yeah, there was hype, it's a "supergroup", sez who and what the hell is this? It didn't take long for everyone to get up to speed. A pretty awful guy, the world is better for him having been here. RIP Mr. Baker.
