I remember reading that when he was sacked from Hawkwind, he said "the world's worst bassist (Harvey Bainbridge) has just sacked the world's best drummer"

RIP Ginger. (Am seeing Harvey Bainbridge later this month - Hawklords... they don’t let him near the bass...strictly keyboards!)

...and should say Ginger’s drumming on Hawkwind’s Levitation was fantastic....

Sad news, while a lot of his catalogue is not my genre his music and personality was always around my generations world. Another 60's icon has left the stage, a sad day

RIP Ginger

That's sad news. Brilliant drummer. I'll wait for the next big storm here and imagine you drumming along with the thunder.

Went to Cream's farewell concert at London's Royal Albert Hall in 1968. Memorable gig.

Not forgetting his time with Blues Incorporated led by Alexis Korner who at various times included Jack Bruce, Charlie Watts, Long John Baldry and then the Graham Bond Organisation one of the early R&B pioneers.

Graham Bond, Bruce, John McLaughlin (The Mahavishnu Orchestra) and Dick Heckstall-Smith, who later went on to form Colosseum with Jon Hiseman who had taken over Ginger Baker's drumming role when he left to form Cream.

A true music legend and born in South London to boot.

'It's the drummer's job to make the other guys sound good'. There's some truth in that.

There's a terrific documentary about him on YouTube. Think it was first shown on BBC4 in 2012.

Also did a few albums with the Gurvitz brothers. " Baker Gurvitz Army" I still have tucked away somewhere

I have no memory of him playing with Hawkwind at all. That must have been nuts. Anyone know what the Hawkwind line-up was at the time?

Although I was a little young for when Cream were around my brother had a few of their records. I got hooked on them later, some superb music and very sad that such an important part of that group is gone.

I'm always somewhat amazed that people who didn't probably live the healthiest of lifestyles in their younger years make it to 80... there is hope for me yet!

Anyway RIP Ginger... always entertaining to watch perform.

The Beware Of Mr Baker documentary sounds like an interesting watch- and I found it on YouTube.
