Second that. I read an article in either The New Yorker or the NY Times Magazine about the guy who did the documentary, and holy fucking shitballs, Ginger Baker is one fucking crazy motherfucker.

Absolutely. Baker is beyond legend.

I cannot stand listening to his drumming. Him and Mitch Mitchell are the worst.

That said, I always enjoy music documentaries about crazy mofos.

Cream reunion was one of the greatest times in the history of scalping. PIcture the typical Clapton fan in the third millennium, shelling out $3-6000 for a single ticket. These people are as toxic as Linda Tripp or Gilbert Gottfried, and it took a piece of crap like Clapton to make them happy. Cream should have another reunion, we could finally capture Joseph Kony and Kim Jong Un with convenient one stop shopping.

The schedule can sometimes be hectic and they find it very difficult to say no.

Jay, GREAT film. Enjoyed Baker's music for YEARS and wondered what happened. You answered much of that and got some good interviews with survivors from the time. Glad it wasn't just another "musician on junk" film. Fair, funny as hell. The animations were a nice surprise. If you had to get under his skin to peel back the layers, so be it. Baker reminds me of my stepfather! Baker seems to me a very wounded person. He really got the shit beat out of him when he was young. I think he is a good interview and I don't think he realizes how funny he is. Yes, I did see him live once with Bruce in The Mid- '90s and they were PHENOMENAL. Funny to watch Bruce staring Baker down while he soloed for "Toad".
