In describing Henry Rollins, the tendency is to try to squeeze as many labels as possible into a single sentence. "Rollins is many things," says the Washington Post, "diatribist, confessor, provocateur, humorist, even motivational speaker, his is an enthusiastic and engaging chatter." Entertainment Weekly's list includes Punk-rock icon. Spoken word poet. Actor. Author. DJ. Is there anything this guy can't do? TV Guide has more concisely called him a "Renaissance Man“ but if Henry Rollins could be reduced to a single word, that word would undoubtedly be "workaholic."
For better than a quarter century, Rollins has toured the world as a spoken word artist, as frontman for both Rollins Band and Black Flag and "without a microphone“ as a solitary traveler with insatiable curiosity bypassing the resorts in favor of places like Siberia and Senegal, or Burma and Bangladesh.
