Default Bonham vs Baker

Who do you think was best, John Bohnam (led zep) or Ginger Baker (cream)? Everyone seems to favour Bohnam, but I think that Baker steals the show with his crazy fuse of complicated polyrhythems and double bass. He took double bass drumming outside of metal. Plus, he was an amazing showman, even for the wrong reasons...seriously, in some of his old videos he looks like a corpse attatched to strings like a puppet. I don`t know why he is so obscure.

Anyway, who do you think is best?

Check out these videos of Baker first:
