Portrait Night 7/5 (Henry Rollins)

Tonight’s #PortraitNight subject is Black Flag front-man and Professional Angry Guy Henry Rollins. I’ve actually been thinking a lot about ol’ Hank these days since I’m reading Our Band Could be Your Life. It’s easy to razz Rollins for is often over-the-top anger/bitterness, but he’s a pretty smart guy and some of the things he had to say back in the Black Flag days are surprisingly applicable today:

“There’s a lot of people with a lot of fury in this country–America is seething at all times. It’s like a Gaza Strip that’s three thousand miles long.”
