Summary, etc.:
BEWARE OF MR. BAKER goes home with rock 'n' roll monster Ginger Baker, Cream's legendary scarlet-maned, hell-raising drummer. This no-holds-barred, sad, and hilarious portrait of the man referred to as rock's first great drummer lets him tell his own story, intercut with footage of his continent-hopping life, from London to L.A., Nigeria, Italy, and South Africa. Baker may have broken the mold musically, but his violent, dyspeptic mood swings (fueled by a decades-long heroin addiction) went a long way to making him persona non grata even among the music greats who still revere his work. With Eric Clapton, Johnny Rotten, Charlie Watts, and Lars Ulrich.
