Neil Peart interviewed in Ginger Baker Documentary

Update - 3/18

Beware of Mr. Baker won top prize at the SXSW.


Neil Peart, and many other drummers and musicians, were interviewed for the documentary, "Beware of Mr. Baker," about Cream drummer Ginger Baker.

You can watch a clip, including some Neil's interviews, at this website:

More about the film from the official website:

The documentary includes stories from his ex-wives, children, and many of the greatest living musicians that worked with Ginger including Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Charlie Watts, Mickey Hart, Carlos Santana, Max Weinberg, Chad Smith, Femi Kuti, Neil Peart, Simon Kirke, Marky Ramone and many more.

This documentary is one such story -- a marriage of the film and music worlds through the life of one of the most unforgettable and controversial musicians. He was there the night Jimi Hendrix died, shared the drugs, the music, the names, the groups, while stripping away the other voices as the conductor, time keeper, the master drummer of our time. Beware of Mr. Baker catapults the viewer into his beat -- with every smash of the bass drum there is a man behind it smashing his way through life.
