Bill Ward remembers.
The legendary Black Sabbath drummer has shared a heartfelt tribute to fellow drum legend Ginger Baker of the band Cream, who passed away last week at the age of 80.
"This man I've never met, this traveler, rule breaker, this man, who showed the very many that change is possible, will live forever," Ward shared on Twitter. "His final punctuation marks leave me listening to the drums of Africa, and I am brought to a place to sit and rest and look at the swollen dark clouds, now opening slightly allowing sun rays to shoot to the ground, something great has passed. Something beautiful has passed. Thank you, Ginger. Rest in peace."
