Henry Rollins got into punk rock as a curious kid in 1970s Washington DC. He first found success as lead singer with the band Black Flag and went on to form his own band. He had a cult following on the alternative music scene, but he soon left the confines of rock and roll. Henry Rollins has embraced writing, broadcasting, acting and journalism. These days he’s an activist and storyteller taking on issues from militarism to race relations to homophobia. He’s built up something of a cult following around the world - but how receptive is America to his enduring punk sensibility?
