While out of Napalm Death, during 1998, Greenway started a band called Nothing But Comtempt with Cancer's drummer Carl Stokes. After Stokes left Nothing But Contempt, Danny Herrera became the band's drummer. Nevertheless, Greenway returned to Napalm Death and Nothing But Contempt was put on hold.
Greenway has stated his nickname "Barney" came from a time when he used to drink alcohol. He stated he would get so drunk and if he went anywhere, he would bump into everything. From this behaviour, he would be called "Rubble", which changed to "Barney Rubble" and then just "Barney". http://www.maelstrom.nu/ezine/interview_iss11_138.php?sid=&osCsid=
Greenway is a progressive metal fan. He joined Dream Theater on stage at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and performed vocals on Metallica's "Damage, Inc." live. He is a regular contributor of the British rock magazine Kerrang! as a reviewer of progressive metal bands/albums.
Greenway is also a supporter of Aston Villa F.C. He is a supporter of PETA and has been a vegetarian since he was 14. Barney is also recognisable for his strong Birmingham accent which has never waned and is always maintained proudly, and for his distinctive gruff vocal style that many feel has become synonymous with Napalm Death.
He has several tattoos, including a tattoo of the Aston Villa badge.
