Profile
Peter Edward "Ginger" Baker (born 19 August 1939, died 6 October 2019) was an English drummer, best known as the founder of the rock band Cream. Baker's work in the 60s earned him praise as "rock's first superstar drummer," although his individual style melded a jazz background with his personal interest in African rhythms. Baker was an inductee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Cream and is widely considered one of the most influential drummers of all time, recognized by his induction into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 2008.
