“I have really fond memories of Ginger. When I was a kid, he would play games with me and was always a lot of fun when I would see him at Eric’s house. I can remember always asking Pattie, ‘Where’s Ginger, where’s Ginger?’ He was cool and I loved him.” Will Johns, guitarist of Music Of Cream and nephew of Eric Clapton, added.

Many other groups, musicians and figures paid tribute to Ginger Baker through social media.

The obituary of Ginger Baker describes the late drummer as “a sight to behold behind the kit.”

“With two bass drums, tuned slightly differently to one another, arms flailing, his red hair looking like an accident on Bonfire Night, eyes seemingly ready to bust out of his skull, the man was the physical embodiment of rage.”
