The family of Cream drummer and co-founder Ginger Baker says the musician is "critically ill" at the hospital.
The news was posted on Baker's social media channels, with a brief statement saying: "Message. Ginger is critically ill in hospital. Please keep it in your prayers. Thank you all. ”
No other details from the family have been published.
Baker has deteriorated in health in recent years, with the drummer forced to cancel a number of live concerts in February 2016 after falling and being diagnosed with a serious heart condition that required surgery.
He later thanked the doctors and played the Jack Bruce Philanthropic Concert in London again in October of that year.
In an interview with Classic Rock Baker deals with his health issues, saying, "Very, very painful. I have a problem with my lower back and it gets worse the more I play. It's Painful to Drum
"I have a terrible problem with my right knee that sometimes it becomes difficult to play. I have a big wrist problem. The doctor told me it was arthritis and there was nothing much about it. It's just pain. "
