Henry Rollins's legendary, no-holds-barred performances encompass music, acting and the written and spoken-word. In this energetic biography young writer James Parker plots the course of Rollins's career, from his punk rock adolescence in Washington DC, through his years with the seminal band Black Flag, to his current status as a cult icon. Rollins's profile is increasing all the time - as well as appearing in the big budget films Heat, Johnny Mnemonic and Lost Highway he has appeared in adverts for Apple Mac, the Gap and is all over MTV. This is a vivid account of twenty years of full-on Rollins. 'Parker's book is particularly good at charting Rollins's adolescence in DC, featuring interviews with school friends, teachers, fellow skaters and those involved in the city's embryonic hardcore scene, as well as his fascination with the notorious Charles Manson and his acceptance into the literary and spoken word circuits' Kerrang!show more
