Ginger Baker is still hospitalized but “feeling better”

Ginger Baker is “feeling better” after being hospitalized last week. Cream‘s drummer is receiving visits from friends, family and colleagues, according to a tweet on his official profile. The news was published by his family.

Cream’s drummer was hospitalized and was in “critical condition,” but the reason was not disclosed. Baker has suffered from various health problems in recent years and in 2016 had to undergo heart surgery. In the same year, he canceled his tour for heart problems.

In 2013 he revealed to Rolling Stone that his health was “not good” and that performing at shows exhausted him.

Life and career

Baker turned 80 last August 19th. In 2016 he underwent heart surgery and months before he had fallen into his home. We still do not know if the hospitalization has any relation with this accident.

The drummer founded Cream in 1966 alongside Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce and together released four albums including the famous Disraeli Gears. The group came to an end two years later. Baker and Clapton even played together on a few occasions while the drummer worked on his solo career.

Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
