CREAM drummer GINGER BAKER received some bad news from his doctor . . . and so he’s shutting his career down for now. He revealed on Facebook that he’s suffering from “serious heart problems.”
And in a blog post, he added, quote, “Just seen my doctor . . . big shock . . . no more gigs for this old drummer . . . everything is off . . . of all things, I never thought it would be my heart.”
Ginger is 76. He last performed on January 26th. A few years ago, he said his health was “not good.” He said he had “degenerative osteoarthritis” and also got Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, from smoking.
