Pumped and ready for action

There are few more iconic figures in modern rock than the screaming, vein-bulging Henry Rollins at full throttle. He once headed seminal US hardcore punks Black Flag. whose name is still spoken in reverential tones, and now fronts the Rollins Band. fusing metal. funk and punk with Richter-

scale efficiency.

But there is a more sensitive side to the scarin muscular, heavily tattooed exercise junkie. His spoken word performances straddle the gap between stand up and confessional. His tales of life as a geeky teenager (before he started pumping iron with almost religious intensity) and his problems with relationships are chock full of pathos and slightly uncomfortable humour. ‘My leading personality trait is ineptness,’ he says. ‘So I'm sure there’s a lot of laughs to be had there, even when I'm not

planning it.’

This man has been touring the world for over 20 years and has a cannon of truly delicious tales from touring. ‘l'm on the road 9 to 11 months a year. so I’m more at home with my backpack sleeping in a hotel room, on a bus

or on a plane than lam on a bed.‘

He‘s an outspoken intellect and a tireless campaigner when it comes to the West Memphis Three. three men whose convictions for a triple child murder look decidedly unfounded and reek of persecution. Punk. actor, activist. poet and stand-up, Rollins is one of the most complex and enigmatic figures in the business. (Henry Northmore)
