Crumb Interview Audio Available On-Line From National Public Radio's Fresh Air
Comic artist extraordinare R. Crumb is a underground writer/artist of mythological proportions. Helping kick off the popular headshop comix of the 60's he has gone on to becoming a cultural icon, the subject of a fascinating and award-winning documentary by director Terry Zwigoff, and he continues to entertain the planet with a recently-released new memoir The R. Crumb Handbook. Crumb's repeated rejection of the commodification of his work is legendary (once turning down an offer to do a Rolling Stones album cover because he hated the band), he continues to stand as one of the last remaining role models of the egalitarian '60s hippie ethos that San Francisco is so famous for.
Check out this NPR interview with the outrageous underground comix creator and hear Crumb's twisted wisdom about music, sex, drugs, stereotypes, and of course comics.
