Why do I love Henry Rollins?? For so many reasons, but you can add a new one:
Hundreds of fans packed Bagram Civic Center to see hardcore rock icon Henry Rollins Dec. 7 as part of his USO-sponsored tour to visit service members deployed overseas.
After speaking to the crowd, Rollins signed autographs and took pictures with service members late into the night. Although he was tired and suffering from jet lag, he stayed until the very last service member had left the building.
It made an impression and he’ll be speaking about it on his upcoming talking gigs, too. (listed below)
Via A Small Victory
He recently released a CD of leftover and B-side tracks from the Weight album called Weighting and a studio-recorded talking CD called Nights Behind The Tree Line. Both are worth the money and available on the 2.13.61 store.
