1A really good band with a bad drummer is not a good band. A really bad band with a good drummer sounds better.
2[About Cream's first single] 'Wrapping Paper' is the most appalling piece of shit I've ever heard in my life.
3Living in L.A. [in the 1980s] was quite hard for a former heroin addict. It's the smack capital of the world!
4Cream was doomed three months after it started [in 1966.] It was my band, and Jack Bruce tried to fire me! I didn't get any of the writing credits. It will piss me off for the rest of my life.
5One day [while drumming with Blues Incorporated in 1962] this effeminate little kid [Mick Jagger] showed up, and I hated him. He was a musical moron! Alexis Korner asked me to give Jagger a chance to sing during the interval. But the interval was when I would go and have my fix! Me and Jack Bruce picked on him, throwing in jazz licks to confuse him.
6People say Cream gave birth to heavy metal. If that's so, we should have had an abortion.
7If you have a drug problem, Los Angeles is not the place to be. It used to be that I would hit L.A. straight and in 24 hours somebody would lay something on me.
8[on his second marriage in 1982]: She got bored with farming [in Italy] and me being straight. Without drugs, I guess I'm not as exciting.
9[on his days with Blind Faith]: I got messed up with drugs again and had a long holiday to get straight. When I got back to England, Steve Winwood told me Eric Clapton had run off to form Derek and the Dominos.
10God is punishing me for my past wickedness by keeping me alive and in as much pain as he can.
11I got involved with drugs for the music. I took some smack, and people told me, 'You play incredible.' So I took smack before every gig. Soon I was having trouble making enough money to feed my wife and baby. I'd turn up to a gig stoned and they'd say, 'What are you doing?' I'd tell them, 'I'm taking smack,' and they'd fire me. I used to think they were idiots. And this happened continually.
12We were very poor. My mother worked in a tobacco shop to support my sister and me. I didn't get my first drum kit until I was 16.
13I've used speed occasionally but never liked the effect.
14People always put me as the drummer in the Dead Band with Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. What people didn't know was that until 1964, I was getting high and thinking it was wonderful. After that, I was trying to quit.
1He stopped playing the drums for some physical pains.
2Father of daughters 'Ginette Baker (I)' and Leda Baker.
3Eric Clapton served him his very first French toast while discussing forming Cream.
4He co-wrote the Cream hit "Sweet Wine" with Janet Godfrey, who was, at the time, Jack Bruce's wife.
5_Cream: Royal Albert Hall 2005 (2005) (V)_ was the first time Cream had played together since their 1993 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
6In May of 2005, reunited with Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce for a Cream reunion concert.
7Elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of Cream) in 1993.
8Drummer for the Cream.
9Nicknamed 'Ginger' because of his hair.
