Yes great musician.
Bit of an odd character. Once drove Clapton to tears through one of the many fights he had with the base player.

'Odd' is being kind by all accounts! Obviously a wonderful drummer though. RIP

Hard to believe he was 80 years old! An inspiration to so many that followed him.

Anyone who hasn’t watched Beware of Mr Baker should do so. A brilliant film about an amazing drummer and deeply flawed individual.

Being of that generation I saw him play several times. Undoubtedly a talent but then I read an interview with him where he said that Keith Moon was rubbish. You what? That marked him down as an arseh*le to me, and when many many years later I watched 'Beware of Mr Baker' that confirmed it. Personally I'd rate Pete York as the best drummer I've seen live, not GB.
Not heard of Pete York! But quite a back catalogue I see
