RUSH‘s Neil Peart, Eric Clapton, SEX PISTOLS‘ Johnny Rotten, Carlos Santana and THE ROLLING STONES‘ Charlie Watts appear in Jay Bulger‘s documentary on legendary CREAM drummer Ginger Baker called “Beware Of Mr. Baker“. The documentary will screen multiple times at SXSW (South By Southwest) in Austin, Texas beginning March 10.
“Beware Of Mr. Baker” synopsis: 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.
