He played for Bakerloo, but left the group following the release of its only album.[1] He subsequently became the first drummer of Supertramp (then called Daddy) between late 1969 and early 1970.[2] Baker joined Uriah Heep prior to their second album Salisbury, replacing Nigel Olsson.[3] He recorded the album with the group, but left when he did not want to tour extensively with the band and was replaced by Ian Clarke.[4] He also played for B. J. Cole and Carla Rugg.[citation needed] Baker also plays bass guitar.[citation needed] Baker later performed with ex- Uriah Heep bassist Paul Newton and guitarist Dave Beale in a band called "Off The Cuff". Keith continues to play today with Hannah Dallas & The Button Down Souls.
