Last week, we reported Ginger Baker who’s well known as a drummer of legendary CREAM was admitted to the hospital.
Ginger’s family released a statement saying:
“He is critically ill. Keep him in your prayers tonight.”
Now we have an update on Ginger’s health. Today Baker’s family member posted on social media, saying:
“Ginger is “holding his own” and wants to thank fans for their “good wishes.”
“He is receiving visits from close family & very special friends.”
Ginger Baker’s work in the 1960s earned him the reputation of “rock’s first superstar drummer”.
His style was unique and often melds a jazz background with African rhythms. He is credited as a pioneer of drumming in genres like jazz fusion, heavy metal, and world music.
