Toad

Turns out Ginger Baker is quite the asshole, & a film to prove so will be out soon. We weren't going to bother, partly because Baker sounds as if he could be serious competition
the evidence is there in the interviews with him, in which scorn is poured on more or less everyone
& partly because the fucking Guardian's fucking videos can't fucking be fucking embedded, so fuck them, but we chanced upon a list of awful interviews & while most of them involved Limeys interviewing Yanks (so cultural differences are to be expected) or Limeys & other Limeys (And who the hell cares about that? Not even Limeys themselves, we'll confidently state.) but the one all-American item (of six) was this (embeddable) classic.Baker Bonus:
But the single question I'd most like to have asked Ginger Baker – and which should have been asked in the film – is a variant on Simon's: Why are you such an unpleasant man? What possible benefit does it bring you? After all, you don't watch Beware of Mr Baker and think: he might be a tosser, but at least he's happy. In fact, he just seems filled with anger and bitterness.
Don't forget the rage. And the pain.

The trailer for the Baker film was very entertaining.

Who doesn't deserve to get punched?

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
