Sunshine of your love

Ginger Baker has passed away on October 6. That night in Portland, Maine, Deep Purple paid a tribute to him with replacing the usual Green Onions intro to Hush with an impromptu piece of Sunshine of Your Love.

Thanks to Randy Nichols for the video and to Space Truckin for bringing it to your attention.

    And Little Ian pays his respects the way you should, playing Ginger’s original offbeat with the 1 and 3 snare emphasis (not 2 and 4 as lesser drummers often do).

    Thank you for posting. I was at that show, an excellent performance by all. One minor quibble though was the abbreviated version of Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming, one of my favorite songs of the Steve Morse era. Love the studio version and the live take on Total Abandon Live.

    I saw an audience-filmed video in which they played a chunk of the Allman Brothers instrumental “Hot Lanta” to lead into “Hush.” Very cool!!
