Ginger Baker Ill And In Hospital
Bad news has surfaced from the Baker family as they have announced on Twitter and Facebook that Ginger is “critically ill” in the hospital. The Cream drummer has battled his fair share of health issues in recent years. In an interview 6 years ago, he revealed he was suffering from extremely painful osteoarthritis. The 80 year old musician has also had lung issues such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, has been through open-heart surgery, and has fell down.
Widely known for his work as Cream’s drummer from 1966-68, Baker has been in various bands through out the years and is regarded by many to be one of the greatest drummers of all time.
The Baker family are sad to announce that Ginger is critically ill in hospital. Please keep him in your prayers tonight
