"Cool," is one word Bob Colacello used to describe Andy Warhol, "and complicated".An art critic, author and longtime friend of Warhol, Colacello has many tales about his days working with the renowned artist, from wild parties to painting former Empress Farah Pahlavi of Iran.Born in Brooklyn in 1947, Colacello first met Warhol in 1970, when Warhol was searching for a writer. Within six months of working with Warhol, Colacello became the editor of Interview magazine and capitalized on the artist's mix-and-match of famous personalities to make the magazine the talk of the town. Warhol even suggested Colacello shorten his last name to Cola, to sound more pop.
