Ginger Baker's Son Discusses Their Relationship


Cream drummer Ginger Baker's son Kofi says that he was never stressed out trying to make his father proud because their relationship was mostly strained or non-existent when he was growing up.

"It's never really bothered me because my dad is such an a**hole anyway that it's not like I was stressed about making him proud or anything. So, no, it wasn't really stressful," he told Rolling Stone when asked about learning to play the drum in the shadow of his famous father.

"I didn't really know him…It didn't really dawn on me until I was a bit older what an a**hole [he was] and what he'd done. I'd think, "He had all this money!" Once he did that 2005 reunion and made a whole bunch of money again I was like, "Wow, he's made 5 million dollars. Things are going to change now." I said, "Dad, why don't you buy property with this money? The best thing you can do is buy real estate and I'll rent it from you. That way I'll pay money to you rather than someone I don't know." And he was like, 'F**k off, no. I'm buying my horses.'"

Kofi added that neither he nor his sisters are talking to him at the moment.
