Ginger Baker

Penny Valentine, Disc and Music Echo, 11 April 1970

GINGER BAKER is 31 years old and you DON’T ignore him. You can’t. He has accumulated a monstrous reputation over the past 10 years that makes him the wildest, most uncontrollable musician around. It goes before him into any room so that people, rather unjustly, tend to recoil with horror directly he looms on the horizon.
