Cream drummer Ginger Baker will be the subject of an upcoming film, “Beware of Mr. Baker.”
After his stint from 1966-68 in Cream, Baker later joined the supergroup Blind Faith then led the fusion-rock band Ginger Baker’s Air Force. He’s also worked with Atomic Rooster, Bill Frisell, Bill Laswell, Charlie Haden, Masters of Reality, Public Image Ltd., and BBM, with fellow Cream alum Jack Bruce and Irish blues-rock guitarist Gary Moore.It must have been this that Bill Laswell was talking about: "...and just go record by record. It happens. I just did one for a friend of mine who is doing a film on [Cream drummer] Ginger Baker, and I’m looking at this piece to put a piece of music in. It’s just me talking about going to Italy and finding Ginger, and I was asked to go there by John Lydon, and I found him in the mountains ... it’s a cool story."
Writer/producer Jay Bulger traveled to South Africa in search of the reclusive legend, who has spent the last decade largely out of sight. Bulger spent three months working on an article called “In Search of Ginger Baker,” which eventually became the underpinnings of this new movie project. Filming was done in the Spring of 2010, when Bulger returned with a small crew.
