Ginger Baker in Gonks Go Beat!
While Ginger Baker was a member of The Graham Bond Organisation the group were cast as a band in a film called Gonks Go Beat!
It's been described as the 'Plan 9 From Outer Space of Musicals' and seems an odd affair, starring actors such as Terry Scott, Kenneth Connor and Frank Thornton who struggle to get to grips with the tone of the film but does feature some cracking muscial moments on the soundtrack.
Here's The Graham Bond Organisation getting a music lesson (and Ginger himself getting a dressing down at the end.)
Ginger also features in this epic drum battle, alongside the likes of Bobby Graham, Alan Grinley, John Kearns, Bobby Richards, Ronnie Verrall and Andy White.
