A prize-winner at the music industry South By South West festival in Austin, Texas, earlier this year, this documentary assesses the influence flamboyant and unconventional drummer Ginger Baker has had on the rock world.
Chronicling Baker’s career from the pre-rock ‘n’ roll London jazz scene, via his fame as a member of Cream, and subsequent collaborations with the likes of Fela Kuti and Public Image Limited, the film doesn’t shy away from the darker side of the man himself.
Director Jay Bulger, a journalist for Rolling Stone magazine, elicits eyebrow-raising reminiscences from musicians who attest to the difficulties they had working with the drummer, while Baker himself, now aged 73 and living as a semi-recluse in South Africa, is extraordinarily spiky when confronted by the cameras.
