    I found some old photos of a Ginger Baker clinic at which I was provided "press access".............1987 if I remember correctly.

    I got an interview during the lunch hour and backstage access that night during the clinic.

    I am in the process of getting these photos converted to a digital format and will post them ASAP.

    I was listening to some Cream the other day. I love Ginger Baker's drumming.

    Ginger Baker did some interesting things, and things that were not so interesting. Just like all musicians.

    I'm not loaded with sympathy for people that get involved in booze and drugs, as I always wonder how much better they might have been had they left that stuff alone.

    Heart surgery not surprised at all. He definitely had high blood pressure and heavy chain smoker. Watch and interview with him and Chad Smith and it was like one cigarette after another and ignorant replies to questions. Grumpy old beat up drummer.

    It's all this image that he has cultivated over all the years. If he grew up in my neighborhood (we are in the same age bracket) with that attitude, he would have had his a$$ kicked so many times that he would have kept his mouth shut for the next 50 years.

    I know this, if he had hit me with that cane, I would have shoved it so far up his a$$ they would have had to give him a colostomy bag.

    Baker was one the best drummers of his time. He was very talented by he was also a flipping lunatic.
