Foreword by CHARLIE WATTS of The Rolling Stones

Peter 'Ginger' Baker is a legend. A pioneering drummer who has transcended genres, he did much to popularise world music with his fierce passion for the rhythms of Africa. He is that rare thing, a critically-acclaimed musician who has enjoyed global success with not one but several supergroups, including Cream and Blind Faith. He has lived a life that has been more rock 'n' roll than most, and Ginger's story is an often harrowing journey from his humble beginnings in war-torn south London to his adopted home in South Africa's beautiful Western Cape, complete with polo club. 

He tells of his life-long love of jazz, how he discovered the drums, life on the road, and the heroin use that should have killed him in his colourful 1960s prime. In the 1970s he came up with a trans-Saharan trucking scheme, was a successful rally driver and built an ill-fated recording studio. He talks candidly of the loss and recovery of his fortune, his several marriages, Cream's induction into the rock'n'roll hall of fame in 1993, their subsequent successful reunion in 2005 and his hopes for the future.

 ... judging by the hair-raising tales told within, Ginger Baker should be stone dead – the drugs, the booze, the fights, the car wrecks, the accidents – something should have finished him off. But no, hard as nails, uncompromising, unyielding and grumpy as ever, Ginger, now 70 years old, has bounced back from it all. Harry Shapiro, thecollectivereview.com

 

...Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce, were mostly cool and understated, [Ginger] was mysteriously agitated, bug-eyed and feral, like a pissed-off wizard. John Walsh, The Independent
