Ginger Baker Turns 75: The Strange Life of Rock’s Wildest Drummer
By Alex Magdaleno
The percussive genius behind the legendary British rock trio Cream turned 75 on Tuesday.
For all his iconic status, Baker couldn’t tell you why he’s so talented. “I just do what I do,” Baker told The Guardian. “I don’t think about it.”
He continued: “That’s the problem with so many people — when they think. They spend all day practicing something and then go to the gig and play what they practiced.”
