One of the most celebrated drummers in rock history, Ginger Baker kicked off his career in 1963 as a member of Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated. After playing with the Graham Bond Organization, he would join Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce as a founding member of Cream. The group would go on to monumental success until their breakup, touring constantly and selling over 15 millions albums. Baker then accompanied Clapton in Blind Faith, before founding Ginger Baker's Air Force. Drawn to Africa, he would spend time on the continent and collaborate with Fela Kuti. Since then, Baker has released a number of albums and toured with groups playing in a variety of styles. Sixteen years after recording Coward of the County with the Denver Jazz Quartet, he released Why? in 2014. Ginger Baker confirmed his legendary status with his autobiography, Hellraiser, as well as the documentary Beware of Mr. Baker (2012).
