Ginger Baker recently told a reporter, among other things, that the Rolling Stones are "not good musicians." He also had some disparaging words to say about fellow classic rockers the Who and Bob Dylan.
It's no secret that former Cream drummer Ginger Baker isn't a very pleasant man to be around. In fact, there's a whole documentary, 'Beware of Mr. Baker,' about his difficult behavior. A U.K. music writer recently became the target of Baker's ire during a public Q&A session.
He's indisputably one of the greatest drummers in the history of rock and roll, but Ginger Baker didn't always see himself behind a kit -- in fact, as he revealed during a recent interview, he originally dreamed of being a professional cyclist.
Cream have become the latest classic rock act to announce that they will be celebrating Record Store Day on April 20. The famous supergroup will release a three-LP of 'Live at the Royal Albert Hall' in an extremely limited run of only 1,500 copies.
Although they were only together for two years, the impact that British power trio Cream had upon the world is truly remarkable. No song illustrates this better than 'Sunshine of Your Love,' which mixed hard rock with aspects of psychedelia to wonderful effect.
In the trailer for 'Beware of Mr. Baker,' Ginger Baker, the former drummer of Cream and Blind Faith is declared to be many things. Some desirable. Others? Not so much. The skins smasher is declared mad. He is described as looking like the devil. It is said that he is what the drums are all about. He is christened a lovable rogue and the world's greatest drummer. How's that for polarizing? He is certainly a lot of different things to a lot of people.
