Ginger Baker & Jack Bruce

Rory Gallagher was a great guitarist. One of my favourites. Didn't get the fame that the other guys did but he could sure make his guitar talk. He passed away quite a few years ago though. I think it was liver disease.
Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce together again would be interesting. Didn't Baker try to knife Bruce once? It was even on stage, although I don't know if it was a performance or a rehearsal. That's a great story.
A couple of years ago, Mick Fleetwood made a comment about Ginger Baker being a bit "off" nowadays with his drumming. Ginger didn't take too kindly to that from what I hear.
Given your desire for a brit guitar supergroup then the best living drummer for this job is clearly Steve Ferrone.
1) He is a brit
2) He plays all genre's adeptly adding to music rather than dominating it (as a great drummer should).
3) Currently part of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and living in LA
4) He opened for the WHO at age 12
5) Clapton unplugged...Eric chose Steve for his drumming
If you are suprised or have not heard of him then look him up on drummer's world. He has been employed by many of the best as a session drummer.
