How is it possible for him to be 80 years old ?
Cream just won't be the same without him.

Agreed. It really doesn't seem that long ago that Cream was dominating the airwaves on SLC's KCPX radio.

It's amazing he lived to be 80. He had such a reputation of living the true rock and roll lifestyle.

RIP

What ? You didn't listen to KNAK, or in later years KRSP ?

Actually it does. You're talking about at least fifty years ago, at which point some board members were not even born... And those who were, were a good deal younger.

It's amazing he lived to 80, but another music legend is gone.

Back in the late 1990s/early 2000s his (then) wife was in my ward. She was much younger than he was. She was a convert, and (for a time) very enthusiastic about the church ( I remember once in F&T meeting, she told a story about finding much needed peace by attending the temple in another country.)

She went inactive before I did. I’m embarrassed to admit that I remember discussing her during ward council meeting. Most of the members didn’t even know that she was married to a former rock star.

Last I heard, she was performing non-denominational weddings.

I always secretly hoped that I’d be assigned to be her home teacher, so that I could meet Ginger.

Beware of Mr. Baker is one hell of a documentary. The man was a great percussionist. Mad as a hatter.

Well, it wasn't the same since they disbanded. And they were even less the same when Jack Bruce died.

They disbanded (is that a pun ?) before most people were born.

I remember when "Sunshine of Your Love" hit the charts here. Groundbreaking (I was maybe 20) along with signs of ERIC CLAPTON IS GOD from England. When I heard him play "CROSSROADS", I believed it.

You know, wife of Richard (Rogers) Hammerstein and mother of Roy and "Mr. (Fred) Rogers," not to be confused with "'Mr.' Ed."

She was shipwrecked on a desert island after an ill-fated three hour tour.

It's been decades since anyone heard from her.

Watched the movie Beware of Mr. Baker. Most amusing. One thing for sure, Ginger Baker was one crazy bad ass. Love them old Cream songs.

Money, Ocasek and now him. They come in 3s.

Cornell and Petty are the music deaths that messed me up the most.

Big fan of Cream and Blind Faith . Perhaps the greatest Rock drummer . He and Jack Bruce had a toxic relationship but still made great music together. The reunion at Royal Albert Hall is a good listen . BTW has anyone figured out how many holes it takes to fill that hall?

Neil Peart say of Baker that every rock drummer who followed was influenced by Ginger even if they were unaware of it....high praise from a rock drumming GOD.

Rush are AWFUL though. No comparison. I prefer John Lydon's complimemt which was to invite him into PiL, which was much better than Bum's Rush ever was!!!
