As much as I like them I'd rate Wyatt higher than Ginger Baker and John Bonham as a drummer.
that wasn't Ginger Baker -- that was Mama Cass. I believe Ginger Baker choked (but didn't die) from John Bonham's vomit
lotta great drummers as well. Ginger Baker, Ian Paice, John Bonham, KeithMoon, Neil Peart and on and on.
Morning’ folks…so I was really bored Sunday morning and I switched from the regular TV and turned on Netflix to find something…or anything to watch! As if manna fell from TV heaven I found a film called “Beware of Mr. Baker” To anyone from my generation who ever pounded on their desks at school or beat the drums to four track, eight track, cassettes or albums. To the guys or gals who spend hours taking drum lessons or found a group of musicians to play with…you knew who Ginger Baker was. He was Keith Moon (The Who) or John Bonham (Led Zeppelin) on steroids. My oldest brothers Mike and Pat introduced me to Baker as a member of the group Cream and brother John Gulley reintroduced me to Baker with an eight-track tape in his car from a “super group” called Blind Faith. I listened to that eight track for hours, days, weeks, months and years trying to duplicate the power, speed and timing of Baker and his famous drum solo’s. To this day I still get chills when I hear a song called “Do What Y ...
Who was the Greatest Rock drummer in your opinion? I always have trouble choosing between John Bonham and ginger Baker. Ginger Baker takes the cake in my opinion
Hey all. I'm looking for a drummer to complete a new rock n roll trio in Amsterdam. We will jamming and writing together and performing as soon as we can. Preferably a heavy hitting drummer in to people like John Bonham, Stevie Wonder, Mitch Mitchell and Ginger Baker. Add me and message if you're interested or know any good drummers you can put me in touch with :) Cheers, Samuel.
A little Rock 'N Roll history; The Ludwig brand received its greatest boost in popularity in 1963-1966 when Ringo Starr of The Beatles was prominently displaying the trade name on his bass drumhead, immediately above the Beatles' logo. The Ludwig company expressed its appreciation to Starr in 1964 when William Ludwig Jr., Vice-President and General Manager of the company at the time, presented him with an inscribed, gold-plated snare drum during The Beatles' appearance in Chicago. Ginger Baker of Cream was another famous Ludwig endorser of the 1960s. Baker was responsible for making double-bass Ludwig drum kits popular as well as the fusion of jazz, rock, African and poly-rhythms in drumming. In the 70s, Led Zeppelin's John Bonham became the next world class drummer to use and endorse Ludwig drums, after Carmine Appice of Vanilla Fudge, and later Cactus, Beck, Bogert & Appice, and finally, with Rod Stewart, followed by Alex Van Halen of Van Halen in the late 70s and Neil Peart of Rush in the late 80s. ...
Unlike contemporary rock drummers such as Ginger Baker and John Bonham, [Keith] Moon hated drum solos and refused to play them in concert. At one show, Townshend and Entwistle decided to spontaneously stop playing to hear Moon's drum solo. Moon immediately stopped too, shouting "Drum solos are boring!"
Friday, January 3, 2014. Okay. First, a tip for you all. I haven't been able to find a radio station in L.A. that doesn't keep playing the same old songs, over and over again. Just found one the other day !! KCSN, 88.5 FM. The format is almost free-form, and they don't play the same, usual, hits repeatedly. And also some of the best NEW music I've heard. Check it out. 1) In the late 60's, the three drummers that got most of the attention were Ginger Baker, Mitch Mitchell, and John Bonham. But Mitchell's prowess seems to be largely forgotten, these days. Why ?? 2) Name some "faceless" bands/artists that still managed to have LOTS of hits, and were around for a long time---devoid of any personality. 3) Have Bill Wyman and/or Ron Wood been wearing wigs for years, now ??
Ginger Baker doesn't even rate John Bonham as a drummer so whenever I hear the White Stripes I wonder what he would make of Meg
To any true music fans out there . If u want to see the best drummer ever check out Ginger Baker. He was creams drummer . But also in many other amazing bands and did battles with the best jazz drummers of all time . He was hugely influenced by African beats and is the reason why we have got to hear all these other great rock drummers since him including John Bonham
"Ringo Starr’s work on the Beatles recordings is astonishing, even if it didn’t jump out in the way the drumming of other ‘60s icons did – the nonstop fury of The Who’s Keith Moon, the African-inspired virtuosity of Cream’s Ginger Baker, the thunderous swing of Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham. Ringo almost never gets name-checked as an innovator, in part because he didn’t play solos (except for the exquisite drum break on The End from the 1969 Abbey Road album). But consider how he makes the complicated shifts in métier sound effortless on Here Comes the Sun, the rolling, proto-metal tom-tom groove of Rain, the tribal dance thump of Tomorrow Never Knows, the hi-hat work on Come Together, the syncopated propulsion of Ticket to Ride. Starr gave each song exactly what it needed, but he didn’t call attention to himself while doing it. The only thing flash about Ringo were the rings on his fingers, which inspired his nickname, and the mega-watt grin he wore on stage. “He is nowhere near as flas ...
...John Bonham and *** they sound more pro and memorable. Ginger Baker sounds like he was tapping it around...
... "When people put drummers like John Bonham, Mitch Mitchell and Keith Moon in the same bag as me, it's really insulting. I have a gift, and none of them is even on the same street as me." Ginger Baker
Ginger baker knows but John Bonham keeps it together
Keith Moon is NOT the greatest drummer of all time, he wasn't even the best of his era. John Bonham or maybe Ginger Baker were.
John Bonham is someone I would put on par with Moon, also Ginger Baker. Ginger Baker is a awe inspiring drummer.
Beware Mr. Baker is a dope film. Tho I contend John Bonham was the greatest drummer w/ Ginger Baker a close second. Keith Moon in there too
if you think John Bonham was the world's greatest drummer, then you clearly have not listened to the work of Ginger Baker.
Another 1 of my favorite Drummers! i have never been a small set player! small for me is a 5 PS. set! Kieth Moon! Ginger Baker, Neil Peart, Alex Van Halen, these are my Heros dont get me wrong! i know Buddy Rich, and John Bonham, did great Drumming on smaller set ups! but for me i like the bigger sets !
Ginger Baker says John Bonham couldn't play, neither can any modern drummer. Is this why no-one likes Gingers?
Lost a lot of respect for Ginger Baker slamming John Bonham on before. I think jealousy was at play there.
Hmm... "John Bonham was better than average, but not up there" - Ginger Baker speaking to on
Ginger Baker on disrespecting John Bonham. He's a bit of an *** (GB, that is)
John Bonham, Keith Moon, Abe Cunningham, Dave Grohl and Ginger Baker are in my list. Yours may differ...
Can't figure out which solo is crazier... Ginger baker's Toad or John Bonham's Moby ***
John Bonham, Neil Peart, and Ginger Baker, are the only drummers, to my knowledge, that can have a 10 minute drum solo and it be okay.
I'd much rather spend the whole evening on Youtube watching random dudes demonstrate Ginger Baker and John Bonham drum fills
John Bonham eats Ginger Baker for breakfast. You know what Ginger Baker and coffee have in common, right?
I was surprised nobody mention Ginger Baker of Cream as top drummer ever. He is in same class as John Bonham and Keith Moon.
My top 7 of best drummers of all time: 7.Ginger Baker 6.Dave Lombardo 5.Mike Portnoy 4.Neil Peart 3.Keith Moon 2.Clive Burr 1.John Bonham
What does have in common with John Bonham, Ginger Baker and Count Dracula? Answer: He's a wicked good drummer with a bite!
While I always loved John Bonham's drumming, it seems Ginger Baker doesn't get as much publicity as he should.
I just read a Rolling Stone interview with Ringo Starr from 1982 where he claimed that he was the Greatest Rock drummer in the world. At first I was offended by his tenacity, but then I started thinking, John Bonham and Keith Moon had both died in the last five years, so, they are not on earth, and Ginger Baker is more classified as a jazz drummer, so... Good job using your words wisely Ringo. Although I am pretty sure that Niel Peart and Bill Ward found that story quite adorable..-Ira
Brewers yeast is really active, sounds like John Bonham & Ginger Baker are having a drum-off in my bathtub.
Ever wanted to add some John Bonham to your favorite non-Zeppelin song?
OK, the B-version of Art Lyzak's NO DEVIATION continues. BEST rock drummer. Elaborate if you like, but no deviations. ( Art's rules. He invented the game. ) A. ) Keith Moon. B. ) John Bonham. C. ) Ringo Starr. D. ) Ginger Baker.
John Bonham, Keith Moon, Ginger Baker, Charlie Watts, Neil Smith. Probably my top 5 drummers. Subject to change.
...it was supposedly a mix of John Bonham and Ginger Baker...
There’s a point in Jay Bulger’s compelling documentary Beware of Mr. Baker where the filmmaker sits down with Eric Clapton and asks him to pit Cream drummer Ginger Baker against his rock contemporaries – John Bonham, Keith Moon.
Besides John Bonham, Ginger Baker and Michael Derozier (Heart - yes Heart! *** hard drummer) maybe Dave Ghrol (bowbow) any other rock drummers feel you? And if you even start with that "Phil C" guy I will automatically defriend you.
A lot of people say that Travis Barker is the best drummer ever. WRONG. John Bonham, Neil Peart, Ginger Baker, Keith Moon, Stewart Copeland.
We just had a recital, featuring some ensemble performances, at the music store/school where I teach. It was a packed house, and I had four drum students (ages 10-11) perform. They kicked MAJOR a ... er, butt on the classic rock, blues and contemporary Christian rock songs they played on (John Bonham and Ginger Baker would have been proud!).
.Will Hunt is great. Let's not forget John Bonham of Led Zeppelin, Ginger Baker of Cream & Mitch Mitchell with Jimi Hendrix
Here are my top five drummers...Who are your? 1. Buddy Rich 2. Ginger Baker 3. John Bonham 4. Keith Moon 5. Neil Peart
Good going Mike - I always liked stuff behind me instead of in front. BTW In case no one know this, Mr. Robinson is the best thing to happen to a set of drumsticks since Mitch Mitchell, Ginger Baker, and "the MAN" John Bonham!!
“Ginger Baker, John Bonham, or Neil Peart?” It's a tough call... What about throwing Mitch Mitchell into that mix? :)
