Ginger Baker, who died today at age 80, has a long, important resume. But it’s his work with Cream that has haunted me since the age of 12. “Sunshine of Your Love,” “Badge,” there’s nothing else like those magnificent drums. His work lives in the soul, and now it outlives him. Rest in peace.
Ginger Baker, great drummer, wild and lovely guy. We worked together on the 'Band on the Run' album in his ARC Studio, Lagos, Nigeria. Sad to hear that he died but the memories never will. X Paul pic.twitter.com/Rne4tn6A2i
