Ginger Baker is the original rock and roll madman junkie drummer superstar! Known for playing in Cream and Blind Faith, the world's greatest drummer didn’t truly hit his stride until 1972, when he arrived in Nigeria and discovered Fela Kuti's Afrobeat. After leaving Nigeria, Ginger returned to his pattern of drug-induced self-destruction, and countless groundbreaking musical works, eventually settling in South Africa, where the 73-year-old lives with his young bride and 39 polo ponies. This documentary includes interviews with Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Carlos Santana and more. Beware of Mr. Baker! With every smash of the drum is a man smashing his way through life.
I was lucky enough to be present at the Effie House (Los Angeles, CA) when Rocco DeLuca and Simon Katz recorded a song called "Windows" for Rocco's album "Drugs 'N Hymns".
Rocco put down 3 tracks: guitar and vocals, slide guitar, and ghost vocals. I split the screen into four parts so you can see and hear each part of the song (put on good headphones if you don't have good sound). Rocco is singing about Barton Springs in Austin, TX so I filmed a bunch of stuff (with my iPhone and an app called Camer8) in an around there for the fourth window.
