Ginger Baker Critically Ill

https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-e...-a9120871.html


Quote:
“The Baker family are sad to announce that Ginger is critically ill in hospital,” the family’s statement reads. “Please keep him in your prayers tonight.”
No further details regarding Baker’s illness have been disclosed.
Baker has suffered from a number of health issues in recent years. He underwent open heart surgery in 2016 after being forced to cancel a tour with his band Air Force after being diagnosed with “serious heart problems”.

This doesn't sound too good. He has looked ill in interviews over recent years.

Re: Ginger Baker Critically Ill

R.I.P.

Some of the most primal drumming in rock: went well with Bruce's meandering bass and Clapton's lumbering riffs.

Clapton's the lone man now.
