Description

Bill Drummond is known variously as wayward genius; art terrorist; a hoaxer with integrity; and the ex-pop star who broke up his band, the KLF, at the height of its success to wage an idiosyncratic war against the art world. He's also a loving, if exasperated, father of five, a thoughtful critic, and a wry observer of the mad, hysterical worlds of music and art which he has inhabited for well over 20 years. Perhaps most famously of all, he is the man who burned #1 million and then asked the world to decide why. At the age of 45, reaching his "half-time", Bill Drummond has paused to take stock of his often bizarre, usually chaotic, life. Whether recording "Justified Ancients of Mu Mu" with Tammy Wynette, or contemplating the dull lunacy of the Turner prize, or tying together 6237 cans of Tennent's Super into a cube before distributing the lot to the "street drinkers" of London, or turning down the request to write the official song for Scotland for the World Cup, Bill Drummond reveals his thoughts and opinions and his infectious enthusiasm for disorder and mischief.

Author Biography
