Happy Birthday! Ginger Baker

Today, Peter Edward "Ginger" Baker, the English drummer, best known as the founder of the rock band Cream, turns 79.

Baker's work in the 1960s earned him praise as "rock's first superstar drummer", although his individual style melded a jazz background with his interest in African rhythms. Baker is an inductee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Cream and is widely considered one of the most influential drummers of all time.

In Ginger's honor, here's the 2012 American documentary film by Jay Bulger Beware of Mr. Baker
