Ginger Baker

Peter Edward "Ginger" Baker (born 19 August 1939) is an English drummer and the founder of the rock band Cream. His work in the 1960s earned him praise as "rock's first superstar drummer," although his individual style melded a jazz background with his interest in African rhythms. Baker is credited as a pioneer of drumming in genres like jazz fusion, heavy metal and world music.
