watch Eric Clapton, Roger Waters, Nile Rodgers & more play Ginger Baker tribute

Legendary Cream drummer Ginger Baker sadly passed away last year, and on Monday night his former bandmate Eric Clapton paid tribute to his late friend with an star-studded celebration of Baker’s life at London’s Eventim Apollo on Monday (2/17). The special guests were special indeed, with Roger Waters, Nile RodgersSteve Winwood, The Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood, Small Faces’ Kenney Jones, Squeeze/Roxy Music’s Paul Carrack, and Baker’s own son, Kofi Baker, (who took on his father’s iconic drum solo in “Toad.”)

The night consisted of mostly Cream songs, including “Sunshine of Your Love,” “I Feel Free,” and lots more, but also included a few Blind Faith tracks like “Had To Cry Today” and “Do What You Like,” as well as covers of Robert Johnson’s “Cross Road Blues” and Buddy Holly’s “Well All Right.” Watch highlights from the concert, via Ultimate Classic Rock, and view the night’s setlist, below.
