Ginger Baker.
You were an amazing drummer.
And a very unpleasant man indeed.

Ok, I'll bite.
I don't know - What is the difference between a Radox bath and Ginger
Baker?
I've never heard this and, being an ex-pro drummer, I thought I'd heard
them all. [1]
A Radox bath bucks up the feet...

What's the difference between Phil Collins with the Earth, Wind and Fire
brass section and a cow?


Well, a cow has the horns at the front . . .

Very good, ranks alongside my favourite, with the goldfish and the
mountain goat, where the former mucks about in fountains.

And let's not forget the barrow boy and dachshund.[1]

You were an amazing drummer.
And a very unpleasant man indeed.
The ideal epitaph.

With a lot of musicians I feel very sorry that they're gone. With
Ginger Baker...not so much. But Disraeli Gears and Wheels Of Fire are
woven into my musical bones and I'm very grateful to him for his part in
that.

Seems not uncommon in entertainment (though far from a rule): IMO Peter
Sellers has left us with some marvellous work, but AIUI wasn't a very
nice person, for example.

I presume that's the tune - but not the rendition of it you're thinking
of - that was the theme tune for AbFab. (Or is that Wheels _On_ Fire?)

Has it gone off? I prefer Elmlea - I think it's often cheaper, and
certainly keeps longer. (I think I like the taste better too.)

No, it's a classic album by Cream:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disraeli_Gears
(I still have my original vinyl copy with that extraordinary cover.)

The theme to Ab Fab was This Wheel's On Fire by Bob Dylan and Rick
Danko. The classic[1] version of the song was by Julie Driscoll, Brain
Augur and the Trinity in 1968:

She re-recorded it with Adrian Edmondson for Ab Fab.


[1]I know I have used the term "classic" twice in this post, but I think
it is justified in both cases.

I've tended to "discover" artists very early or very late in their
careers. I saw a television broadcast on (Wikipedia tells me) 5th
January 1969 and thought "Cream? Gosh, they're good: I'll have to go
and see them."
