Trailer: Beware Of Mr. Baker – The Story Ginger Baker

Normally music documentaries focus their attentions on a band, or a event or a genre. With that being said, there is nothing quite normal about Ginger Baker, who is the subject of the new doc Beware Of Mr. Baker. The 92-min doc, which was four years in the making, tells the story of legendary, influential and cantankerous drummer, who is best known for his time as a member of Cream and Blind Faith, but also recorded with everyone from Fela Kuti to Johnny Rotten’s post-Sex Pistols project PiL to space-rock band Hawkwind.

Baker’s influence on rock music can be seen in the reverence paid by the impressive list of drummers who appear in the film, which includes Neil Peart (Rush), Stewart Copeland (The Police), Mickey Hart (Grateful Dead) and Marky Ramone (The Ramones), as well as slew of his former band mates like Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood. The film recently took home the Documentary Grand Jury prize at  this month’s SXSW Festival. Let’s take a look at the trailer…
