I watched the Ginger Baker bio dvd called Beware Of Mr.Baker and it is quite amusing especially where Ginger is being asked questions by a youngish rock interviewer in Ginger's ranch house in Africa where Ginger quite often after being asked a question will say something to the interviewer like "What?. Listen you stupid idiot" or "F**k off!" or "Your just a dumb yank" ha ha ha... Some of the archive film footage of Ginger is interesting and to be honest Ginger in the 1970s looked very intimidating no wonder a number of rock musicians kept out of his way. I had to laugh when the rock interviewer asks Ginger in 2012 while Ginger was laying down looking f**ked would he Ginger get back out playing in a rock band again?. Ginger looked at the interviewer guy for a couple of seconds and then said loudly F**K OFF!!. Ha ha ha...

Beware Of Mr.Baker...

I re-watched it again a few days ago after watching it about 6-7 times a few weeks ago and it's actually a pretty good dvd to watch and quite amusing in some parts with Ginger saying whatever comes into his head. I believe it was filmed around 2010 nine years before Ginger's death at his ranch house in South Africa and includes lots of archive material but it's a pity the producers didn't add an extra 30-45 minutes of bonus interview material to really 'round it out' for those who are interested in Ginger Baker like myself. Compared to the Eric Clapton dvd A Life In 12 Bars their is no comparison Eric's dvd is interesting and it contains some interesting material especially around the Patti Harrison business when Eric nicked George Harrison's wife but it isn't as entertaining to watch as the Ginger Baker dvd which is worth repeated watching and quite amusing in parts.
