Happy 75th Ginger Baker! British Drummer Carried Beat for Cream
Influential UK drummer also played with Blind Faith, Hawkwind and P.I.L.
If you've ever jammed to "Sunshine of Your Love" or "White Room" by Cream, spent time with the Blind Faith album, got down to Levitation by Hawkwind or listened to Public Image Limited's classic Album, then tip your hat to Mr. Ginger Baker, who turns 75 on August 19th, 2014.
To celebrate, Here are a few killer photos of Baker playing with Cream on the Dutch television show Fanclub.
