“I have a healthy fear of my audience and healthy fear of failure. I fear failing my audience and that keeps me very upright, very awake, very leaning into it – never taking it for granted.” – Henry Rollins from the interview.
A singer and writer known for his time in one of the most influential hardcore punk bands of the early 1980s comes to Ann Arbor on Thursday. Not to rock out, but to talk it out. Henry Rollins – former lead singer of Black Flag and his own group known as Rollins Band – comes to the Michigan Theatre for a stop on his “The Long March” spoken word tour.
Rollins has been doing spoken word performances telling true stories of his travels and observations since the early 1980s.
Rob St. Mary spoke to Rollins about the tour, his recent journeys and his creative drives.
