Happy Birthday, Ginger Baker!

Happy Birthday, Ginger Baker!

Perhaps known best known for co-founding Cream and his, ahem, “fiery” personality, Ginger Baker was a phenomenal drummer and extremely influential, sighted as a major influence on many of the modern great players today. He’s one of the most controversial players of our time, and although he’s no longer with us, it can’t be denied that his presence and unmistakable sound make him a real icon of the drumming world.

We check out some of his career highlights from a real old-school dude!

An old school solo, by an old school rock and roll LEGEND!

Cream – Toad (Royal Albert Hall)


This 2005 performance of Toad at the Royal Albert Hall is worth the watch! 12 minutes of incredible rock and roll, with a few moments of magic from the Baker himself…

Perhaps the most bombastic video in this list, here’s the song Today by the man himself own jazz-fusion supergroup; Ginger Baker’s Air Force
