I’ll be glad to see the back end of this week for so many reasons.
One reason being, this is the week we said goodbye to one of my musical heroes, Ginger Baker. When I was growing up and educating myself in what I thought was cool in music, I was introduced to Cream by my Mum. I had heard loads of cream stuff (the famous stuff) on Eric Clapton compilations, but I hadn’t differentiated Cream as a unit from being a unit that featured Eric Clapton.
Once I started digging into the catalogue of Cream and came across Ginger Baker’s astounding drum solo track Toad, my mind was blown and it soon joined the other mega drum solo I knew of at the time Moby Dick by John Bonham of Led Zeppelin.
The playlist this week is a hodge podge of new stuff, old stuff and to be frank some out of the box stuff. All the songs included this week have either made me think or cheered me up a bit.
Hope you enjoy the playist and have a wicked weekend.
