Whether or not you're interested in Cream, Blind Faith and the rest of Ginger Baker's musical endeavours, this tragicomic tale of riotous bad behaviour and thunderous jazz-rock drumming is a must-see.

Baker's many famous admirers and colleagues (John Lydon, Eric Clapton and so on) discuss him with a mixture of adoration and terror, but none of them can top his own crotchety, poetic, expletive-filled way with an anecdote.
