Wild man dies:

Ginger Baker, one of the most innovative and influential drummers in rock music, has died at the age of 80.
A co-founder of Cream, he also played with Blind Faith, Hawkwind and Fela Kuti in a long and varied career.
His style combined the lyricism of jazz with the crude power of rock. One critic said watching him was like witnessing "a human combine harvester".
But he was also a temperamental and argumentative figure, whose behaviour frequently led to on-stage punch-ups.

Jazz really had an influence of Ginger. One of his most important influences was Gene Krupa. One of Jazz greatest drummers. Krupa's influence on the music of the late forties, and on into the sixties. Like baker the double bass drums were the big heart of time-keeping for a band![

Ginger Baker maybe the "first ginger" referring to being a redhead. Loved all his drumming and singing.
I remember when the "Blind Faith" LP was released. A "Super Group". There seems a small window of
time in rock history where "drum solos" were the thing.

I think ginger was a common term in England for redheads.

It's a common term amoung USA Railroaders.

It's also true you don't want to piss a Ginger off.

One way to get a guaranteed vasectomy.

Who fell off the tricycle?

"Snippy" felt like he was him when he tested out the effectiveness of his helmet several years ago.

Anyone who remembers Bonnie and Clyde will remember this guy. The last paragraph might be of interest to anyone who ever listened to and enjoyed Traffic, too.

Start out as a star at a young age, work as a cocktail waitress later in life, five marriages, some of these folks just don't do well:

Sue Lyon, the actress who was forever tied to her teenage portrayal of the title role in 1962s Lolita, died Dec. 26 in Los Angeles. She was 73.
The news was first reported by the New York Times, and no cause of death was immediately given. She was 73.
How did they ever make a movie of Lolita, asked the ads for the film, director Stanley Kubricks adaptation of Vladimir Nabokovs controversial novel about a man in his 40s who becomes obsessed with a young girl. James Mason, Peter Sellers and Shelley Winters also starred in the film.
