Here’s the trailer for a new documentary on Ginger Baker, the chaotic English drummer who played with Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce in Cream during the 70s and is still regarded today as one of the greatest drummers of all time.
Of course there’s a catch and that is Mr Baker has a short fuse and a notorious reputation for being wildly unpredictable, (a possible result of heavy drug use throughout the years), which director Jay Bulger finds out via a broken nose.
We’re sure this documentary is interesting and if you have a deep appreciation for playing the drums then this film will be right up your alley, but to us it’s just the glorification of a person whose main contribution to society as a whole has about as much impact as a perfect melted cheese sandwich. Hey Baker why don’t you drum us up a cure for cancer? Yeah, didn’t think so.
And as for you Johnny Rotten, you wild and crazy, revolutionary punk who set the world on fire with your anarchic personality and anti-establishment views, don’t you have some butter to flog?
