Henry Rollins (born Henry Lawrence Garfield; February 13, 1961) is an American musician, writer, journalist, publisher, actor, radio host, spoken word artist, and activist.[1][2][3] He is now hosting a radio show and doing speaking tours.[4][5]

After performing for the short-lived Washington D.C.-based band State of Alert in 1980, Rollins fronted the California hardcore punk band Black Flag from August 1981 until mid-1986. Following the band's breakup, Rollins 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 from 1987 until 2003, and during 2006.

Since Black Flag disbanded, Rollins has hosted numerous radio shows, such as Harmony in My Head on Indie 103, and television shows such as The Henry Rollins Show, MTV's 120 Minutes, and Jackass. He had a recurring dramatic role in the second season of Sons of Anarchy and has also had roles in several films. Rollins has also campaigned for various political causes in the United States, including promoting LGBT rights, World Hunger Relief, and an end to war in particular.

Band BiographyEdit

Henry Rollins was the lead singer of Black Flag, but when they broke up, he put together the Rollins Band to do his music. Around this time, he started doing readings of his poetry (along with self-publishing books of it), which spun out into doing monologues and routines. He's got more spoken word albums now than he does solo musical records, though there's quite a few of those, as well. He also is an actor in his spare time, which he doesn't have any of, as he's always writing, performing, acting, running a label/publishing house and all of the other things he's doing which fall under the category of "working".
