Father’s Day is Sunday. Be glad your dad isn’t Ginger Baker. According to his son Kofi Baker, Ginger hasn’t been a very good father.

By the way, if you’re a fan of Ginger Baker‘s work, you can catch his son Kofi along with Jack Bruce‘s son Malcolm and Eric Clapton‘s nephew Will Johns, touring as “The Music of Cream“, much in the same way John Bonham‘s son Jason is doing with his “Jason Bonham‘s Led Zeppelin Experience“.

I like that their doing this. I’ll go see ’em when they come around this fall. And Kofi, I wish your dad had been kinder to you. I’ve seen Beware Mr. Baker and it seems like your dad just doesn’t have it in him. I know you know it has nothing to do with you.

Ginger Baker's Son: 'My Dad Has Been Dead to Me for a Long Time'

As anyone who's seen the excellent 2009 documentary The Devil and Ginger Baker knows, the wildman Cream drummer isn't the easiest person to get along with. He's moody, easy to anger, extremely opinionated and prone to sudden flashes of violence.
