Last night, February 17, Eric Clapton hosted a star-studded tribute concert for late Cream and Blind Faith drummer Ginger Baker at the Eventim Apollo Hammersmith in London.

Playing a set chock-full of some of the bands' most legendary tunes, Clapton was joined by Roger Waters on bass for "Sunshine of Your Love," "Strange Brew" and "White Room," the latter two of which also featured former Faces members Ronnie Wood on guitar and Kenney Jones on drums.

Chic's Nile Rodgers also stopped by to assist on "I Feel Free," "Tales of Brave Ulysses" and a Blind Faith mini-set that also featured Steve Winwood on organ, vocals and guitar.

“He was a scoundrel but I loved him and he loved me and that was that," Clapton said of the famously tempestuous Baker at one point. “I saw some people get the rough edge of his tongue but I never did, so I feel blessed. That’s why I’m doing this.”

You can check out Clapton, Waters and Wood's performance of "White Room" above, plus videos of "Sunshine of Your Love" and the star-studded "Crossroads" encore - featuring Clapton, Wood, Waters and Rodgers - below.
