Shepard Fairey’s Henry Rollins Appreciation

Written by

Rollins81-500x679KCRW DJ Henry Rollins is doing a bunch of spoken-word  shows at Largo at the Coronet later this month (Feb 16-20) to celebrate his 50th birthday.

Also, artist Shepard Fairey is releasing a special signed print this Sunday in honor of the big day.

It’s a painting based on a 1981 Black Flag photo by Glen E. Friedman and is signed by the photographer, Fairey and Henry himself.

From Shepard:

“I hold Henry in high regard for his many talents as a singer, writer, radio DJ, TV host, political and social commentator, etc… but above all I love his energy and gusto. Henry has been doing it his way hardcore for 30+ years.”

The Rollins 81 print will go on sale at a “random time” and will be available for $80. Go here for more info and to see the original photo.

Also, don’t forget to tune in for Henry’s KCRW show this Saturday from 6 to 8pm.
