Henry Rollins

Henry Rollins emerged as a post-punk renaissance man, without the self-conscious trappings that plague many ’80s artists. Rollins has been relentlessly busy recording albums with the Rollins Band, writing books and poetry, performing spoken word tours, writing a magazine column in Details, acting in several movies, and appearing on radio programs. His records are uncompromising, intense, cathartic fusions of hard rock, funk, post-punk noise and jazz experimentalism, with Rollins shouting angry, biting self examinations and accusations over the grind.
