About Henry Rollins
Many consider him the spokesperson of their generation. Others mark him as a hypocrite. In whatever light you see Henry Rollins, he's made an undeniable impact on popular culture throughout his career. The last singer for the pivotal Hardcore band Black Flag, Rollins catapulted himself into a steady regimen of making music (on his own and with the band he named after himself); writing books, magazine articles and even poetry; touring as a spoken word artist; and even starring in computer advertisements. He's kept busy telling stories of life on the road and raging over politics on all levels, from personal to national. Whether crunched down in black shorts yelling into a microphone against a backdrop of equally caustic music, or screaming red-faced as he reads from one of his books, he's one of the world's most intense performers. When Rollins speaks, people listen.
