Baker And Clapton Speak In First Clip From BEWARE OF MR BAKER
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.
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.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.
