Ginger Baker is the mad, bad drummer best known for playing in Cream and Blind Faith. One of rock's most colourful characters, his reputation for drugs, violence and all forms of excess preceded him everywhere. This brand new documentary includes revealing interviews with Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Carlos Santana and more to paint a fascinating portrait of a musical icon.

There is a great deal of explicit swearing, so not suitable for young kids or anyone likely to be offended by this.
This is NOT easy viewing, and the 15 rating is to be taken seriously - if you want to show the kids your hero then let them see Cream's farewell concert or an Airforce DVD if you can get one.
I thought I knew a lot about Mr Baker, but I never knew he was bullied at school or is a polo fanatic (most of his money goes on buying stablefuls of polo ponies, apparently! (Probably should have read the book)
Don't be taken in by the list of "guests" - the real interviews are with Ginger's family, and especially his son.
If you want to join Ginger on the roller coaster of his amazing life, with some concert footage that I imagined had long since been lost, then you must buy this.
Documentary maker Jay Bulger himself has an interesting story to tell: of how he blagged his way into Ginger Baker's now necessarily reclusive world by posing as a journalist with Rolling Stone, thereby scoring an interview which he then ingeniously managed to get Rolling Stone to publish, launching his own rock career. In this film Bulger returns to Baker and, despite being tempted in early exchanges, manages to keep himself well out of the frame for most of the rest of the film.
What Bulger comes up with is a cleverly constructed biopic which pivots around a series of filmed interviews with Baker, now a frail old man with osteoarthritis, and more or less in penniless exile on a South African ranch. His eyes may be dim but Baker has lost none of his irrascibility - Bulger sustains a nasty bleeding nose at one point for suggesting he will be talking to former band mates - and is a magnetic subject.Read more ›

Well worth watching, Mr Baker is quite a character, both endearing and yet at times horrifying. Mad? Perhaps. Brilliant? Probably. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Dr. L. Goodwin
Apart from the hammed up shot of Ginger smashing the directors face-in with his walking-stick, this is a well made documentry that is hugely enjoyable. Read morePublished 12 months ago by The Dealer
