Great player, a force of nature. Wrote some of my favourite Cream songs, including this. Love his playing on Blind Faith too. RIP

Yes, me too. My older brother had Wheels Of fire and Pressed Rat & Warthog made a big impression on me. N.S.U was an early influence on me, particularly the rolling drum which was a big thrill. I really enjoyed the documentary about him, although as a person, best enjoy from a distance it seems. But what a legacy he leaves behind. R.I.P Ginger Baker.

Good call - I love Jack's cello on that track

A superb album - studio and live

An interesting fact just occurred to me.

Both Jack and Ginger played in Graham Bond's Organisation:

Graham Bond - keyboards, vocals
Jack Bruce - bass guitar, vocals
Dick Heckstall-Smith - saxophone
John McLaughlin - guitar
Ginger Baker - drums, percussion
Jon Hiseman - drums

They are now all dead except Johnny Mc

A morbid thought.....

Haha, DB really hamming it up for the cameras. Nice to see Huw again, I thought they were never the same after he left.

The only one of those musicians I didn't see was Mr Baker.

Anyone going to Clapton's tribute gig on Monday?
