Henry Rollins

Host, Henry Rollins

In describing Henry Rollins, the tendency is to try to squeeze as many labels as possible into a single sentence. "Rollins is many things," says the Washington Post, "diatribist, confessor, provocateur, humorist, even motivational speaker…his is an enthusiastic and engaging chatter." Entertainment Weekly's list includes "Punk-rock icon. Spoken word poet. Actor. Author. DJ. Is there anything this guy can't do?" TV Guide has more concisely called him a "Renaissance Man" – but if Henry Rollins could be reduced to a single word that word would undoubtedly be "workaholic."

For better than a quarter century, Rollins has toured the world as a spoken word artist, as front-man for both Rollins Band and Black Flag and – without a microphone – as a solitary traveler with insatiable curiosity bypassing the resorts in favor of places like Siberia, Senegal, Burma and Bangladesh.

When he's not living out of a backpack, Rollins is constantly at work as an actor, radio DJ, author of more than 25 books, and running his publishing company and record label 2.13.61. Henry currently hosts a weekly radio show on LA's renowned NPR affiliate KCRW, is a regular columnist for LA Weekly and Rolling Stone Australia. In recent years has hosted several TV shows for National Geographic, including 2012's three-part series Animal Underworld with Henry Rollins.
