The 80-year-old South London-born Baker is the founder of Cream, which also featured Jack Bruce and Eric Clapton. He also played in Blind Faith and released close to 20 solo albums.

A drummer of undeniable range and power, Baker is equally adept in jazz fusion, heavy metal, world music and rock and roll. Over the years he has worked with a remarkably diverse cast of musicians, including Public Image Ltd., Fela Kuti, Masters of Reality, Charlie Haden and Bill Frisell.

The 2013 documentary “Beware Of Mr. Baker” found Stereo Embers’ own Matt Sloan declaring it to be: “Hands down the best music documentary of all time.”
