Dopo la scomparsa del leggendario batterista dei Cream, Ginger Baker, sono stati tantissimi gli artisti che hanno voluto rendere omaggio al musicista morto ieri all’età di 80 anni.
Tra le numerose condoglianze, anche quelle della famiglia di Jack Bruce, compagno di Baker nei Cream, insieme a Eric Clapton. Anche Steve Winwood, ha reso omaggio al batterista, con lui nei Blind Faith. Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Flea Brian Wilson, Ringo Starr, tutti hanno espresso un loro ricordo del batterista affidando le proprie parola ai social.
Baker è stato uno dei batteristi più innovativi e influenti nella storia del rock, al terzo posto nella classifica dei migliori drummer di tutti i tempi compilata da Rolling Stone.
The Bruce family would like to extend their sincere condolences to Ginger Baker’s family, friends and fans. Surviving a love hate relationship, Ginger was like an older brother to Jack, their chemistry was truly spectacular. RIP Ginger, one of the greatest drummers of all time ❤️ pic.twitter.com/G9Pl4Qecdp

Ginger Baker, great drummer, wild and lovely guy. We worked together on the 'Band on the Run' album in his ARC Studio, Lagos, Nigeria. Sad to hear that he died but the memories never will. X Paul pic.twitter.com/Rne4tn6A2i

Sad news hearing that Ginger Baker has died, I remember playing with him very early on in Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated. He was a fiery but extremely talented and innovative drummer. pic.twitter.com/tZg3IGwP4Z

As a young musician few drummers stood taller or were a bigger musical influence than Ginger Baker…I will never forget the awesomeness of seeing him perform with Cream at Massey Hall on June 5 1968 along side the late great Jack Bruce and Eric Clapton. He was one of Rock’s first virtuoso drummers and his incredible legacy lives on. Sincere condolences to Ginger’s family, friends and fans. ?: Nash the Slash Massey Hall June 5, 1968 ?: Beware of Mr. Baker documentary #ripgingerbaker #gingerbaker #cream #masseyhall
