Ginger Baker: a master and monster who split rock music apart

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

PRO SHOT BEACH BOYS CONCERTS - LIST


To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Great musician! Sorry to see him pass. I was fortunate to have seen Cream in Sacramento in March of 1968. QDEP.

Definitely one of rock's most cantankerous figures.  His interviews alone are rather hilarious just to see how cranky he was.  Oh, and he was a great drummer too.

This is arguably my first confrontation with Mr. Baker's work. From late 1966, it's Cream's second 45, "I Feel Free":
