Jay Bulger and ‘Beware of Mr. Baker’

Rock & Roll has seen its share of bad boys, but Ginger Baker – drummer for Cream – takes the cake. The hard-living British expat (now living in South Africa) has left a trail of scorched earth, and sublime music, behind him. Gonzo filmmaker Jay Bulger spent years getting to know Ginger (he has the bruises to show for it); his film about the experience “Beware of Mr. Baker” rolls out nationally this weekend. Jay shares with Brendan some of his hard-won insights about the man…and the menace.
