Has anybody seen this documentary?
I found it last night on NetFlix - great film. I guess I never realized what a madman Ginger was (is)? He just might be the greatest drummer in all of popular music - ever! In interviews with players like Clapton and Jack Bruce, we hear that Ginger was first and foremost a JAZZ drummer. Many of those interviewed just scoff and sneer at the mentions of the likes of Bonham and Moon in the same sentence as Ginger, citing that Ginger had no peers in rock music. Probably one of the most interesting musicians I've ever seen documented.

I did see it and agree with you. However, I actually found myself feeling bad for Ginger and all that he has lost; his health, money, homes, wives, etc....

Havn't seen it yet. Sounds about right haven't all his interviews been like that. And I do agree with the man. He is or was that good. I thought he was full **** until I tryed counting to four in a Cream record. Go ahead try it.

After seeing that doc, I would say "threw away" as opposed to "lost". It seemed to me that's the price he paid for living his life completely on his own terms with rampant disregard for anyone and anything else around him, with the possible exception of Eric Clapton. As for his health, it's hard to chain-smoke for half a century without consequence. Electrifyingly brilliant musician in his day - the sample track from his new album sounds pretty feeble.
