Former Cream drummer Ginger Baker has put his fellow classic rock icons the Rolling Stones and the Who on trial. During a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the legend says he is friendly enough with both bands, but doesn't think much of their musicianship:
"[Stones drummer] Charlie [Watts] is a great friend of mine. I think the world of Charlie." He then added that he "won't go within 10 miles of a Rolling Stones gig."
When pressed on his reasons for avoiding Stones shows, he adds: "They're not good musicians," noting that "the best musician in the Stones is Charlie by a country mile."
Baker adds that he was close friends with late Who drummer Keith Moon, but adds that he "wouldn't say he was a great drummer."
