By Kyle Harcott VANCOUVER — Henry Rollins: world traveller, actor, author, radio and television host, and elder punk statesman as former singer to the mighty Rollins Band and Black Flag, is back on the road this winter bringing his spoken word across the continent. Over 80 dates are lined up throughout North America.”
As well known for his outspoken, uncompromising views as he is for his music, Rollins has always maintained a relentless schedule, squeezing in a phenomenal performance in “He Never Dies”, presenting a weekly radio show on KCRW and publishing a weighty new book – “A Grim Detail” which “covers my travels... all over the world for shows and exploration. North Korea, Mongolia, South Sudan and Saudi Arabia are just a few of the destinations.”
“Christian Rock is there for you who lack courage and intellect”
With all this activity, it’s no wonder his podcast with Heidi May is on hiatus at the moment.
Interviewed in Beat Route, Rollins talks about what’s bugging him in music today, snakes, Donny Tiny-Hands and The Stooges. Check out the video below to hear Henry’s hot-take on all the above and the resurgence of the DIY punk ethos.
