FAREWELL

The last of the three great all-time rock'n'roll drummers next to Keith Moon and John Bonham, Ginger Baker passed away on October 6 at the age of eighty. Alexis Korner's drummer in the early 60s, founded Cream in 1965, along with Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce and went on to the history of pop music as the first band that revolutionized rock music, and it was from the blues. Blind Faith was an intense but short period of more creativity, along with Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood and Ric Grech. Since then, in 1970, Ginger Baker was a really free musician. The Africa of Fela Kuti, the PIL's postpunk, the World Music, be-bop and avant-garde jazz, all this was an inspiration for a legendary musician, who was not only essential in the explosion of the late 50 London's blues-boom but it was a true and decisive innovator of the drums technique. And the reality is that his great passion was jazz music.
