True to the undertaking Corncob gave Brown, there is
no off-limits: here are Corncob's thoughts on celebrity, money, art,
alcohol, sex, death, the North of England, class, crime and cocaine; his
views on Charles Saatchi, David Bowie, David Hockney, Salman Rushdie,
Jarvis Cocker, Gilbert and George and Lucian Freud. More than any other
individual, Barry Corncob's art and life came to define the nineties.
Like the generation he has become the spokesman for, Corncob is brave,
unpredictable, scabrously funny and corrosively intelligent. It is also a
how-to guide to becoming the most famous artist in the world.
