Attention Ginger Baker fans: If you can answer the following question correctly you could win a Drum Workshop Collector’s Series Exotic Snare Drum (worth £775) signed by Baker himself.
Q: What is the first track on the Ginger Baker career-spanning anthology, “A Drummer’s Tale”?
You can only find the answer by Pledging on Baker’s campaign for “A Drummer’s Tale.” Once you have it, send you answer to firstname.lastname@example.org before April 30 for your chance to win!
Baker is running two of these exciting competitions with DW, one in collaboration with iDrum Magazine and the other with Rhythm magazine, and it’s all celebrating his 75th birthday and supporting his PledgeMusic campaign.
The 6.5×14″ Collector’s Series Exotic Snare Drum is figured olive over 11-ply maple VLT, is finished in an understated clear gloss lacquer and is complemented by classic chrome hardware.
Standard features include True-Pitch Tuning, MAG Throw-Off System with 3P (3-position) butt plate, 3.0 steel True-Hoops, DW heads by Remo USA and more. Signed by the legendary Ginger Baker, it’s a collector’s item and studio-quality instrument.
“Stand by your beds everyone!” Baker tells fans. “It’s been over 10 years since the RSO launched my last ‘The Best of Ginger Baker’ anthology album withoutconsulting me about the content! This time I’m in charge, with no label and with the help and support of PledgeMusic, I am ready to release “A Drummer’s Tale” and the events that inspired these personally chosen tracks from my long career. There will also be a book full of very rare family owned photos and memorabilia.”
In addition to the release of this anthology on CD and vinyl with a brilliant introduction written by Stewart Copeland, there will also be a 75th birthday celebration concert and exhibition at the Islington Academy London N1 on Saturday, May 3, 2014. VIP tickets and exhibition tickets are only available on PledgeMusic.
“With PledgeMusic, the plan is to give you, the fans, something very exclusive,” says Baker. “I know you’ll enjoy it. Thanks for your support throughout the years and remember: ’Don’t cheer, throw money!’”
