Ginger Baker RIP

Recommended Posts

Definitely one of a kind!!! If there is an afterlife, I'd expect Mr. Baker to be vibrantly active.  Thanks for alerting us to his passing.  I will be celebrating his life listening to his artistry

A ripe old age, I am sure that many will say.

I actually hate that saying, to be honest... I want to live until I'm 357. Well... Sometimes I do anyway.

I only got to see Mr. Baker once, during his brief tenure at Hawkwind. At St Helens.

 

R.I.P.

Only if in their afterlife they have put aside all difference. They did not get along in this life.

I only ever saw him (and Eric) on the Blind Faith tour.

Yep...  My Mom always calls me when a musician dies "Do you know who [name] is?"

 

She made that call about Ginger while I was driving home from a client tonight...

And the last remaining member of Cream is 75. Rock won't be killed by disco, punk, rap or Nickelback, but by the inexorable passage of time.

At least these guys all survived 27.

Missed Cream, saw Blind Faith at the fabulous Forum in ‘69. Highlight of the night? The opening act; Free!

Beware Mr Baker...

Hey Tom,

 

We were in the same place at the same time. That is where I saw Blind Faith too. I had floor seats.

Best I can do in this "me too!" contest is that I almost got to see the Beatles in '66 in Los Angeles (even if it was at Dodger Stadium).  Unfortunately, although pressed by relatives and friends to go, my (relatively non-interested) parents used my young age as an excuse not to go!  😕
