    Default Ginger Baker - Bio and interview

    Mad as a fish is all I can say, but I recently started listening to Nigerian legend, Fela Kuti before I realised that Ginger Baker was playing drums.

    Nasty? Yes. But also an interesting life. This would be one biopic worth seeing (or making)

    Here's a link to the rolling stone interview taken from another paper .....

    yes fela is amazing. i am a huge fan. also ginger baker only worked with him for a little while. tony allen was his drummer for most of his career.

    my favorite song is "gentleman" off of the "confusion gentleman" album.

    also on a side note ginger baker has a really good instructional video, i encourage all drummers to check it out!
    Any musicians near Boston / Cape Cod want to get together and play some VH? I play drums, guitar, keyboard, bass, and I sing. I want to start a VH tribute band. Contact me if interested.
