Former Cream drummer Ginger Baker is recovering from heart surgery, the MirrorUK reports.
The 76-year-old Cream founder was forced to cancel gigs earlier this year when he was diagnosed with serious undisclosed heart problems.
The surgery took place in mid June. Around that time, Baker also suffered a bad fall that resulted in swollen legs and feet, according to his daughter, Leda.
Leda says Baker, who founded Cream in 1966 with bassist Jack Bruce and Eric Clapton, is “on the road to recovery. After open heart surgery and a bad fall he is miraculously recovering well.”
“He called the day after his surgery to say he was okay. Albeit a rather disorientated and unintelligible conversation he was at least awake and aware.”
