By all accounts a thoroughly unpleasant man.

He was certainly irascible. I heard some of his former band members tried to kill him on more than one occasion.

On the other hand when he did his drum solos. The rest of the band would nip out for a full three course meal. When they returned he still had not finished.

Pinched from elsewhere:

 

"Ah Ginger. If he hadn’t been a drummer he likely would have been a cereal killer. Woulda beat the hell outta Capt Crunch."

 

Not that I agree of course.

 

Edit : took me back to the late 60s though when France Inter from Allouis on 1830 ish metres LW broadcast stuff like Cream and other 'hard rock' bands after 10pm.  On a school night too. Mother would have not been impressed.....

Nahh. Not if you're a Manx Radio DJ. Spend a few minutes on Google to find out about this recently dead person you had never ever heard of and you can join in the adulation fest

Never trust a ginger Baker or a barber without a limp was 2 of the best pieces of advice I ever received.

What was the other one?

Can't remember now. Something about clarity in writing.

No, no the baker was a drummer but what did the barber do?

The phrase nominative determinism always makes me think of chocolate digestives for some reason.

This thread has gone Ginger Nuts!

Incidentally, just listened to Sean Keaveny's interview with the baker drummer and he sounded like a right old git.
