He is turning 68 this year. I guess he's being a grandad or something smoking a doobie.

He is indeed a genious, dosen't he have arthritis? That's probably the reason he's not doing anything save the ocassional Cream re-union.

Baker's drumming on Sunrise is some of the most tasteful drumming ever commited to tape, imho...

Not a single drum fill out of place, not a single part overplayed...just perfect.

As far as what he's up to, last week I read Jack Bruce saying that Cream are going to tour some later this year.

i watched a Cream reunion show on PBS, because Ginger was playing drums, i wanted to check him out.  i really don't like Cream.

the best part of the show Ginger had a solo and i think he sang too.  it was meserizing and sooo cool.  that's a cool old dude.

plus he made a song about tea on the first MOR disc.  i like tea, it needs more songs bout it.  brilliant.

i was very disappointed with that pbs performance, if it's the same one.

It was on their second disc. It was about how Americans don't know how to make tea.
Funny stuff.
