Black 2 Comm 26th May 2019

Featuring the Ramones, Aretha Franklin, Dr. John and more. Cheq out this old footage of Cream's Ginger Baker talking us 'round hit drum kit. Inspired by seeing Duke Ellingtons's sticksman Sam Woodyard, he and Keith Moon were the first of the big rock drummers to use a double bass drum set up. While Baker ordered a custom double bass drum Ludwig kit, Moon immediately bought two Premier kits and stuck them together! What's most unusual about the clip though, is the stark contrast in the interviewer's received pronunciation and Baker's slurred, opiated tones!
