    Henry Rollins

    Just a cool video of him talking about the state of music today, like many other things the man says it's pretty good. Noticed we didn't have a thread for one of my working man heroes so here it is.

    Heres the link to the video.

    I have all his spoken word albums and I've seen him talk in person once. I love this man. He has so many amazing stories and insights on the world, whether or not you agree with him I think everyone could take away something from one of his talks.

    WTF, why no shows near me? Give New England a little love Henry? My freaking cat is named Henry.

    I've seen his spoken word show twice and could listen to him talk for hours.

    I think on his website he said not to worry if he's not in your area this tour, as he's doing another U.S. later in the year (summer, fall? idk). Also patiently awaiting him, I've missed him the last few times he's been through NY and it's been way too long.

    Love Rollins. Much like Bill Maher, I can just listen to him talk, and talk, and talk. Saw him live once and 3 hours went by like that. My favorite clip he ever did (being a huge Woody Allen fan) was this:

    It's just such a nice little commentary on the current state of cinema.

    Henry Rollins
    Frequent Flyer Tour 2010
    live in St. Louis, MO
    at The Pageant








    Filmed this spoken word engagement a few years ago and I've been sitting on it ever since because I just never had the time to go through the whole show and carefully cut it into pieces without completely interrupting his various points and discussion topics. As soon as I noticed I could post LOOOOONG videos on YouTube all of a sudden however, I just knew the time had finally come to get this shit out there.

    It's not as bad as it seems, btw. He's a very witty and engaging and entertainingly poignant speaker who covers an exceptionally wide range of subjects and it all just FLIES right by, and on top of THAT the last 40 minutes of the first video and the last hour or so of the second video are just blank blue screen, I just didn't notice till AFTER I'd already spent ALL DAY uploading them, lolFAIL.

    Filming wasn't allowed, of course, and he came out while the house lights were still up and I was in an exposed position, so apologies for missing the fascinating beginning where he just leapt right into it with guns blazing, as well as for the 15 seconds or so I missed while switching tapes between the two clips. This man can TALK.

    Anyway, watch it all, skip around, whatever...but HOLY SHIT get ready for some killer stuff.

    Enjoy!

    I love Rollins, his time in Black Flag, his talk show and his solo output. He's a phenomenal talent.

    I'm going to have to go get dinner and sit down for a long listen. Rollins handled the women heckler pretty well in the first few minutes.

    yeah I'm looking forward to that. He doesn't seem to be too bad in it.

    Seeing this thread just reminded me I have tickets to see him in January in Bristol!

    I took some photos of Henry performing in Bristol tonight. It was unassigned seating which meant I managed to get front row centre. They're pretty crap photos because I didn't want to distract him too much.

    Cool pix, thanks for sharing!

    Neat looking backdrop behind him, too.

    Preach on, Brother Hank!

    He's playing Newcastle tonight and I was really hoping to go but my two friends who were interested can't go for various reasons, and it was a stretch anyway (got some home shit to sort out) so almost certainly missing it.

    I forgot to mention there were protesters outside the venue. They were mad that Rollins is going to Israel.

    Yeah I saw it a while ago. I enjoyed it, but I probably wouldn't have made it all the way to the end if he wasn't in it. I really liked how you could tell Henry really didn't want to hurt the stunt guys throughout
