O show “Eric Clapton & Friends: A Tribute to Ginger Baker”, em homenagem ao baterista Ginger Baker, falecido no último mês de outubro aos 80 anos, foi realizado na última segunda-feira (17). O evento aconteceu no Eventim Apollo Hammersmith, em Londres, na Inglaterra.

Além de Eric Clapton, responsável por promover o evento, o show contou com participações de diversos músicos consagrados no rock e em outros estilos. Roger Waters, baixista do Pink Floyd, por exemplo, tocou músicas do Cream, como “Sunshine of Your Love”, “Strange Brew” e “White Room” – esta última, com Ronnie Wood (Rolling Stones, Faces) na guitara e Kenney Jones (Faces) na bateria.

Outras participações incluem Nile Rodgers (Chic) em “I Feel Free” e “Tales of Brave Ulysses”, Ronnie Wood também em “Badge” e uma espécie de mini-set do Blind Faith reunindo Clapton, Rogers, Steve Winwood no órgão, vocal e guitarra, e Kofi Baker, filho de Ginger, na bateria.
