Ginger Baker –
Musician, misanthrope, maniac.
August 19, 1939 – October 6, 2019.
Aged 80 years.
Most recognized for: Dubbed “rock’s first superstar drummer,” Mr. Baker was not only known for his thundering, africanized rhythms, but also for his wildly erratic behavior. With a hair-trigger temper and an appetite for heroin and cigarettes that made Keith Richards look like a yoga instructor, Ginger’s survival into his 80’s only served as a fresh loogie spat upon the face of mother nature. Finally, she can wipe it off.
