Although Ginger Baker has had several health problems lately, he appears to be on the road to recovery.
The 76 year old drummer recently underwent open heart surgery, something that resulted from a February diagnosis of a heart condition (via Rolling Stone). Baker also suffered a fall, which has caused him to have swollen legs and feet.
Baker’s daughter Leda wrote the following post on his website,
After open heart surgery and a bad fall Ginger is miraculously recovering very well.
He called the day after his surgery to say he was OK. Albeit a rather disoriented and unintelligible conversation he was at least awake and aware.
The fall has resulted in swollen legs and feet which he is seeing his doctor about in the next day or so.
But although he is recovering, any performances in the near future seem over ambitious.
