Ginger Rogers played the drums? Who knew?
One of my boyhood heroes, Jack Bruce, died yesterday. He was the bass guitarist, singer and song-writer with Cream, the band that made me really appreciate music. I never knew, though, that Ginger Rogers was not only a brilliant dancer ... but also played drums alongside Bruce and Eric Clapton. Thanks to The Independent for enlightening me on that and to @eshelm for flagging it up.
