Ginger Baker looks back on his musical career with Cream and Blind Faith; his introduction to Africa; his self-destructive personality and his losses of fortune.

What this documentary does best is present what is good about Ginger Baker - his prodigious drumming. Finely navigating the drummer's early life, his days leading up to Cream's break up, to his days in Africa.  This is a noisy film that will hold your attention.  Essential viewing for everyone who loves rock, as the music is squarely in the spotlight.

“A documentary about the angriest old man of music, drummer Ginger Baker, who is filmed whacking the interviewer with his cane, can only be enthralling”.  Peter Bradshaw The Guardian 16.v.13
