Henry Rollins (born February 13, 1961 as Henry Lawrence Garfield) is an American singer-songwriter, spoken word artist, stand-up comedian, author, actor and publisher.

After joining the short-lived Washington, D.C. band State of Alert in 1980, Rollins fronted the Californian hardcore punk band Black Flag from 1981 until 1986. Following the band's breakup, Rollins soon established the record label and publishing company 2.13.61 to release his spoken word albums, as well as forming the Rollins Band, which toured with a number of lineups until 2003 and during 2006.

Since Black Flag, Rollins has embarked on projects covering a variety of media. He has hosted numerous radio shows, such as "The Henry Rollins Show" and "Harmony In My Head", television shows, such as "MTV"'s "120 Minutes" and "Jackass", along with roles in several films. Rollins has also campaigned for human rights in the United States, promoting gay rights in particular, and tours overseas with the United Service Organizations to entertain American troops.

Early life

Henry Garfield was born in Washington, D.C. on February 13, 1961, and grew up in the Glover Park neighborhood of the city. An only child, Garfield's parents divorced when he was a toddler; he suffered from low self-esteem and a poor attention span as a child.Azerrad, Michael. "". Little Brown and Company, 2001. ISBN 0-316-78753-1. p. 25] He was raised primarily by his mother, Iris, who taught him to read before he entered public school;cite web |url=http://www.themodernword.com/interviews/interview_rollins.html |title= "You can’t dance to a book:" Neddal Ayad interviews Henry Rollins |author=Ayad, Neddal |publisher=TheModernWord.com |date=2007-02-09] however, because of "bad grades, bad attitude, poor conduct", he was soon sent to The Bullis School, a preparatory school in Potomac, Maryland.

According to Garfield, military school helped him to develop a sense of discipline and a strong work ethic. It was at Bullis that he began writing; his early literary efforts were mainly short stories about "blowing up my school and murdering all the teachers." Despite the relative affluence of Glover Park, for Garfield "it was a very rough up-bringing in a lot of other ways. I accumulated a lot of rage by the time I was seventeen or eighteen." Much of the rage came from problems at home.

Music career

tate of Alert

After high school, Garfield attempted college, but after being discouraged by the behavior of his fellow students, who were into "beer and bongs," he left and began working in minimum-wage jobs, including a job as a courier for liver samples at the National Institutes of Health.cite web |url=http://www.popentertainment.com/henryrollins.htm |title=Henry Rollins interview |accessdate=2007-08-14 |author=Sklar, Ronald |publisher=PopEntertainment.com] Garfield became involved in the punk rock scene after he and Ian MacKaye bought a Sex Pistols record; he later described it as a "revelation." By 1979, Garfield was working as a roadie for local bands, including MacKaye's Teen Idles. When the band's singer Nathan Strejcek failed to appear for practice sessions, Garfield convinced the Teen Idles to let him sing. Word of Garfield's ability spread around Washington's underground music scene; Bad Brains singer H.R. would sometimes coax Garfield on stage to sing with him.Azerrad, 2001. p. 26]

In late 1980, the Washington punk band The Extorts lost their frontman Lyle Preslar to Minor Threat. Garfield joined the rest of the band to form State of Alert, and became its frontman and vocalist. He put words to the band's five songs and wrote several more. S.O.A. recorded their sole EP, "No Policy", and released it in 1981 on MacKaye's Dischord Records. [cite web |url=http://wm02.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:wxftxqqkldse |title=State of Alert > Overview |accessdate=2007-08-16 |author=DePasquale, Ron |publisher="All Music Guide"] S.O.A. disbanded after a total of nine concerts and one EP. Garfield had enjoyed being the band's frontman, and had earned a reputation for fighting in shows. He later said: "I was like nineteen and a young man all full of steam [...] "Loved" to get in the dust-ups." By this time, Garfield had become the manager of the Georgetown Häagen-Dazs ice cream store; his steady employment had helped to finance the S.O.A. EP.Azerrad, 2001. p. 27]

Black Flag

In 1980, a friend gave Garfield and MacKaye a copy of Black Flag's "Nervous Breakdown" EP. Garfield soon became a fan of the band, exchanging letters with bassist Chuck Dukowski and later inviting the band to stay in his parents' home when Black Flag toured the East Coast in December 1980. [Azzerad, 2001. p. 27-28] When Black Flag returned to the East Coast in early 1981, Garfield attended as many of their concerts as he could. At an impromptu show in a New York bar, Black Flag's vocalist Dez Cadena allowed Garfield to sing "Clocked In," as Garfield had a five hour drive back to Washington DC to return to work after the performance.Azerrad, 2001. p. 28]

Unbeknownst to Garfield, Cadena wanted to switch to guitar, and the band was looking for a new vocalist. The band was impressed with Garfield's singing and stage demeanor, and the next day, after a semi-formal audition, they asked him to become their permanent vocalist. Despite some doubts, he accepted, in part because of MacKaye's encouragement. His high level of energy and intense personality suited the band's style, but Garfield's diverse tastes in music were a key factor in his being selected as singer; Black Flag's founder Greg Ginn was growing restless creatively and wanted a singer who was willing to move beyond simple, three-chord punk.Azerrad, 2001. p. 29]

After joining Black Flag in 1981, Garfield quit his job at Häagen-Dazs, sold his car, and moved to city-state|Los Angeles|California. Upon arriving in Los Angeles, Garfield got the Black Flag logo tattooed on his left biceps and changed his surname to Rollins, a surname he and MacKaye had used as teenagers. Rollins was in a different environment in Los Angeles; the police soon realized he was a member of Black Flag and he was hassled as a result. Rollins later said "That really scared me. It freaked me out that an adult would do that. [...] My little eyes were opened big time." [Azerrad, 2001. p. 31]

Before concerts, as the rest of band tuned up, Rollins would stride about the stage dressed only in a pair of black shorts, grinding his teeth; to focus before the show he would squeeze a pool ball. [Azerrad, 2001. p. 34] His stage persona impressed several critics; after a 1982 show in city-state|Anacortes|Washington, "Sub Pop" critic Calvin Johnson wrote: "Henry was incredible. Pacing back and forth, lunging, lurching, growling; it was all real, the most intense emotional experiences I have ever seen." [Azerrad, 2001. p. 38]

By 1983, Rollins' stage persona was increasingly alienating him from the rest of Black Flag. During a show in England, Rollins assaulted a member of the audience; Ginn later scolded Rollins, calling him a "macho asshole." [Azerrad, 2001. p. 39] A legal dispute with Unicorn Records held up further Black Flag releases until 1984, and Ginn was slowing the band's tempo down so that they would remain innovative. In August 1983 guitarist Dez Cadena had left the group; a stalemate lingered between Dukowski and Ginn, who wanted Dukowski to leave, before Rollins fired Dukowski outright. [Azerrad, 2001. p. 41] 1984's heavy metal music-influenced "My War" featured Rollins screaming and wailing throughout many of the songs; the band's members also grew their hair to confuse the band's hardcore punk audience.Azerrad, 2001. p. 47]

Black Flag's change in musical style and appearance alienated many of their original fans, who focused their displeasure on Rollins by punching him in the mouth, stabbing him with pens or scratching him with their nails, among other methods. He often fought back, dragging audience members on stage and assaulting them. Rollins became increasingly alienated from the audience; in his tour diary, Rollins wrote "When they spit at me, when they grab at me, they aren't hurting me. When I push out and mangle the flesh of another, it's falling so short of what I really want to do to them." [Azerrad, 2001. p. 46] During the Unicorn legal dispute, Rollins had started a weight-lifting program, and by their 1984 tours, he had become visibly well-built; journalist Michael Azerrad later commented that "his powerful physique was a metaphor for the impregnable emotional shield he was developing around himself." Rollins has since replied that "no, the training was just basically a way to push myself", suggesting that Azerrad "needed to get in touch with his inner homosexual".cite web |url=http://www.smh.com.au/news/gig-reviews/henry-rollins/2008/04/03/1206851089537.html |title=Henry Rollins interview |accessdate=2008-04-04 |author=Jensen, Erik|publisher=www.smh.com.au]

Rollins Band and solo releases

Before Black Flag broke up in August 1986, Rollins had already toured as a solo spoken word artist. [cite web |url=http://www.seattleweekly.com/2003-01-08/music/lip-service.php |title=Lip Service - Henry Rollins |accessdate=2007-09-14 |author=Waggoner, Eric |publisher="Seattle Weekly"] He released two solo records in 1987, "Hot Animal Machine", a collaboration with guitarist Chris Haskett, and "Drive by Shooting", recorded as "Henrietta Collins and the Wifebeating Childhaters"; [cite web |url=http://www.shsu.edu/~lis_fwh/book/punk_newwave_postpunk/support/Rollins.htm |title=Henry Rollins/Black Flag |accessdate=2007-09-09 |author=Hoffmann, Frank |publisher="Survey of American Popular Music"] Rollins also released his second spoken word album, "Big Ugly Mouth" in the same year. Along with Haskett, Rollins soon added Andrew Weiss and Sim Cain, both former members of Ginn's side-project Gone, and called the new group Rollins Band. The band toured relentlessly,cite web |url=http://allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:gjfuxqlgldde~T1 |title=Rollins Band > Biography |accessdate=2007-08-22 |author=Prato, Greg |publisher="All Music Guide"] and their 1987 debut album, "Life Time", was quickly followed by the outtakes and live collection "Do It". The band continued to tour throughout 1988; 1989 marked the release of another Rollins Band album, "Hard Volume".cite web |url=http://allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:yudyyl4jxpvb~T1 |title=Henry Rollins > Biography |accessdate=2007-08-22 |author=Huey, Steve |publisher="All Music Guide"] Another live album, "Turned On", and another spoken word release, "Live at McCabe's", followed in 1990.

1991 saw the Rollins Band sign a distribution deal with Imago Records and appear at the Lollapalooza festival; both improved the band's presence. However, in December 1991, Rollins and his best friend Joe Cole were accosted by gunmen outside Rollins' home. Cole was murdered by a gunshot to the head, but Rollins escaped without injury. [cite web |url=http://www.edwebproject.org/rollins.html |title=Primal Scream: Henry Rollins speaks |accessdate=2007-09-08 |author=Carvin, Andy; Crone, Chris |publisher=EdWebProject.org] Although traumatized by Cole's death, Rollins continued to release new material; the spoken-word album "Human Butt" appeared in 1992 on his own record label, 2.13.61. The Rollins Band released "The End of Silence", Rollins' first charting album.

The following year, Rollins released a spoken-word double album, "The Boxed Life". [cite web |url=http://wm09.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:hbfexqy5ldte |title=The Boxed Life > Overview |accessdate=2007-08-23 |author=Erlewine, Stephen Thomas |publisher="All Music Guide"] The Rollins Band embarked upon the "End of Silence" tour; bassist Weiss was fired towards its end and replaced by funk and jazz bassist Melvin Gibbs. According to critic Steve Huey, 1994 was Rollins' "breakout year". The Rollins Band appeared at Woodstock 94 and released "Weight", which ranked on the Billboard Top 40. Rollins released "", a double-disc set of him reading from his Black Flag tour diary of the same name; he won the Grammy for Best Spoken Word Recording as a result. Rollins was named 1994's "Man of the Year" by the American men's magazine "Details" and became a contributing columnist to the magazine. With the increased exposure, Rollins made several appearances on American music channels MTV and VH1 around this time, and made his Hollywood film debut in 1994 in "The Chase" playing a police officer. [cite web |url=http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/contributor/1800022646/bio |title=Henry Rollins Biography |accessdate=2007-09-14 |publisher=Yahoo! Movies]

In 1995, the Rollins Band's record label, Imago Records, declared itself bankrupt. Rollins began focusing on his spoken word career. He released "Everything", a recording of a chapter of his book "Eye Scream" with free jazz backing, in 1996. He continued to appear in various films, including "Heat", "Johnny Mnemonic" and "Lost Highway". The Rollins Band signed to Dreamworks Records in 1997 and soon released "Come in and Burn", but it did not receive as much critical acclaim as their previous material. Rollins continued to release spoken-word book readings, releasing "Black Coffee Blues" in the same year. 1998 saw Rollins released "Think Tank", his first set of non-book-related spoken material in five years.

In 2007 Rollins performed vocals in the reformed Ruts.

By 1998, Rollins felt that the relationship with his backing band had run its course, and the line-up disbanded. He had produced a Los Angeles hard rock band called Mother Superior, and invited them to form a new incarnation of the Rollins Band. Their first album "Get Some Go Again", was released two years later. The Rollins Band released several more albums, including 2001's "Nice" and 2003's "". After 2003, the band became inactive as Rollins focused on radio and television work.

Musical style


As a vocalist, Rollins has adopted a number of styles through the years. Rollins was initially noted in the Washington, D.C. hardcore scene for what journalist Michael Azerrad described as a "compelling, raspy howl". With State of Alert, Rollins "spat out the lyrics like a bellicose auctioneer". He adopted a similar style after joining Black Flag in 1981. By their album "Damaged" however, Black Flag began to incorporate a swing beat into their style; Rollins then abandoned his S.O.A. "bark" and adopted the band's swing.Azerrad, 2001. p. 32] Rollins later explained: "What I was doing kind of matched the vibe of the music. The music was intense and, well, I was as intense as you needed." [Azerrad, 2001. p. 33]

In both incarnations of the Rollins Band, Rollins combined spoken word with his traditional vocal style in songs such as "Liar" (the song begins with a one minute spoken diatribe by Rollins), as well as barking his way through songs (such as "Tearing" and "Starve") and employing the loud-quiet dynamic. "Rolling Stone"'s Anthony DeCurtis names Rollins a "screeching hate machine" and his "hallmark" as "the sheets-of-sound assault". [cite web |url=http://www.rollingstone.com/artists/rollinsband/albums/album/234867/review/5941451/get_some_go_again |title=Rollins Band: Get Some Go Again |accessdate=2007-09-20 |author=DeCurtis, Anthony |publisher="Rolling Stone"]

Rollins appeared on the 1996 studio album Les Claypool and the Holy Mackerel Present Highball with the Devil, narrating "Delicate Tendrils".Rollins also appeared in the 1993 Tool album, "Undertow". He and Tool front man, Maynard James Keenan, performed the vocals in the song "Bottom".


Rollins wrote several songs with Black Flag, but was not the group's main songwriter. With the Rollins Band, his lyrics focused "almost exclusively on issues relating to personal integrity," according to critic Geoffrey Welchman.

Appearances in other media


As Rollins rose to prominence with the Rollins Band, he began to present and appear on cable television programs. These included "Alternative Nation" and "MTV Sports" in 1993 and 1994 respectively. 1995 saw Rollins appear on an episode of "Unsolved Mysteries" that explored the death of his friend Joe Cole [cite episode |title=Joe Cole |series=Unsolved Mysteries |network="NBC" |airdate=1996-05-17 |season=8 |number=376] and present "State of the Union Undressed" on "Comedy Central". Rollins began to present and narrate "VH1 Legends" in 1996.

[cite episode |title=Rats! |series=Batman Beyond |serieslink=Batman Beyond |network=The WB |airdate=1999-11-20 |season=2 |number=22] [cite episode |title=Eyewitness |series=Batman Beyond |serieslink=Batman Beyond |network=The WB |airdate=2000-01-22 |season=2 |number=27] He also did the voice in Apple's 1999 G4 Cube Ad with Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze" playing as the theme song.

Rollins was a co-host of the television program "Full Metal Challenge" on TLC from 2002 to 2003. Rollins was a host of film review programme "Henry's Film Corner" on the "Independent Film Channel" , before presenting the weekly "The Henry Rollins Show" on the channel. He has made a number of cameo appearances in television series such as "MTV"'s "Jackass" and an episode of "Californication", where he played himself hosting a radio show. [cite episode |title=LOL |episodelink=LOL (Californication) |series=Californication |serieslink=Californication (TV series) |network="Showtime" |airdate=2007-09-10 |season=1 |number=5 |minutes= ] In 2006, Rollins appeared in a documentary series by VH1 and The Sundance Channel called "The Drug Years". [http://www.vh1.com/shows/dyn/the_drug_years/series_artists.jhtml VH1.com : Shows : Rock Docs : The Drug Years : Featured Artists] Also featured in" Batman Beyond's Return of the Joker"


On May 17, 2004, Rollins began hosting a weekly radio show, "Harmony in My Head" on Los Angeles' Indie 103.1 radio. The show aired every Monday evening, with Rollins playing a variety of music ranging from early rock and jump blues to hard rock, blues rock, folk rock, punk rock, metal and rockabilly, but also touching on rap, jazz, world music, reggae, classical music and more. "Harmony In My Head" often emphasizes B-sides, live bootlegs and other rarities, and nearly every episode has featured a song by British group The Fall.

Rollins put the show on a short hiatus to undertake a spoken-word tour in early 2005. Rollins posted playlists and commentary on-line; these lists were expanded with more information and published in book form as "Fanatic!" through 2.13.61 in November 2005. In late 2005, Rollins announced the show's return and began the first episode by playing the show's namesake Buzzcocks song. As of 2008, the show continues each week despite Rollins' constant touring with new pre-recorded shows between live broadcasts.

In 2007 Rollins published "Fanatic! Vol. 2" through 2.13.61.


Rollins began his film career appearing in several independent films featuring Black Flag. His film debut was in 1982's "The Slog Movie", about the West Coast punk scene. [cite web |url=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0405326/ |title=The Slog Movie (1982) |accessdate=2007-09-20 |publisher=Imdb.com] An appearance in 1985's "Black Flag Live" followed. Rollins first film appearance without Black Flag was the short film "The Right Side of My Brain" in 1985. [cite web |url=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089919/ |title=The Right Side of My Brain (1985) |accessdate=2007-06-20 |publisher=Imdb.com] Following the band's breakup, Rollins did not appear in any films until 1994's "The Chase". Rollins appeared in the 2007 direct-to-DVD sequel to "Wrong Turn" (2003), "" as a retired Marine Corps officer who hosts his own show which tests the contestants' will to survive.

Sean Collins, a bounty hunter who was hired to protect various celebrities before their home is over run first by desperate people looking for safety and then by the undead. Rollins won a Grammy for his reading of his autobiographical book "Get In The Van: On The Road With Black Flag".

Campaigning and activism

Rollins has become an outspoken human rights activist, most vocally for gay rights, while deriding any suggestion that he himself is gay. On his 1998 spoken word album "Think Tank" the straight ally declared: "If I was gay, there would be no closet. You would never see the closet I came out of. Why? Because I'd have burned it for kindling by the time I was twelve ... If I was gay, at this stage of the game — age 37, aging alternative icon — I'd be taking out ads." Rollins frequently speaks out on social justice on his spoken word tours and promotes equality, regardless of sexuality. [cite web |url=http://instinctmagazine.com/celebrity-interviews/henry-rollins.html |title=Henry Rollins |accessdate=2007-08-14 |author=Rollins, Henry |publisher=InstinctMagazine.com |date=2007-06-01] He was the host of the WedRock benefit concert, which raised money for a pro-gay-marriage organization.

During the 2003 Iraq War, he started touring with the United Service Organizations to entertain troops overseas while remaining against the war. Rollins caused a stir at a base in Kyrgyzstan when he told the crowd: "Your commander would never lie to you. That's the vice president's job."

Rollins appears with Public Enemy frontman Chuck D on the Black Flag song "Rise Above" on the benefit album ""; the first time Rollins had performed Black Flag's material since 1986.
