Dude, ... don't ever ask me again, where I take the time to listen to podcasts. Seriously.

It's amazing what some highly respected and influential musicians have to do to scrape by. Reminds me of this (not as pathetic) article about Mudhoney's frontman Mark Arm: http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/touch-me-im-sub-pops-warehouse-manager/Content?oid=14595912
Vultural said:Beware Of Mr Baker - 2010 - 7/10
Absorbing biography of Ginger Baker, the devil of the drums.
Interviews with Bruce & Clapton from Cream, Winwood from Blind Faith, and lots of modern era drummers, who were all influenced by him. Tons of clips. Animated sequences.
Baker was a troubled child and a reckless force of nature. Three of his four wives speak on camera (though wife #4 seemed less than comfortable). Drug addictions, zero financial sense, and rootless ways keep him skirting near the edge of poverty. What saves him is his drum kit. At any age, he can still pound harder, and with more soul and understanding than almost any.
Even in his 70s, Baker is a right piece of work, opening the film by giving his interviewer a bloody nose by smacking him with his cane. Great moment, I’m so glad it was left in.
