Jay Bulger's SXSW selected documentary Beware Of Mr Baker
tells the story of Cream and Bind Faith drummer Ginger Baker, an oversized personality who - if the first clip released is any indication - hasn't mellowed a bit of the years.
Ginger Baker is known for playing in Cream and Blind Faith, but the
world's greatest drummer didn't hit his stride until 1972, when he
arrived in Nigeria and discovered Fela Kuti's Afrobeat. After leaving
Nigeria, Ginger returned to his pattern of drug-induced
self-destruction, and countless groundbreaking musical works, eventually
settling in South Africa, where the 73-year-old lives with his young
bride and 39 polo ponies. This documentary includes interviews with Eric
Clapton, Steve Winwood, Carlos Santana and more. Beware of Mr. Baker!
With every smash of the drum is a man smashing his way through life.
Featuring extensive interviews with his famous former bandmates as well as Baker himself and an unexpected animated component this looks like exceptional stuff. Check the first clip below.
