Ginger Baker Cancels Spring/Summer Tour Dates

Cream drummer Ginger Baker is facing some serious health issues.

Baker has canceled all of his spring and summer dates -- including an April and May tour in the U.S. and U.K. and an appearance at Britain's Ramblin' Man Fair during July -- due to "diagnosis of serious heart problems" according to a message on Baker's Facebook page. The post says that "Ginger's doctors have insisted that he have complete rest...We hope you will join with his family in wishing him well."

The 67-year-old Baker's most recent album, a jazz set called Why?, came out in 2014.
