Introduction: Henry Rollins is fucking rad. He’s an amazing performer and storyteller. He’s one of the most fascinating people I’ve ever listened to. And for a guy who looks like he can be turbo-douche, he’s the least douchiest person around. The diametrical opposite of a turbo-douche.
There’s a lot of Henry’s stuff floating around online. A LOT. A ton of footage; each video at least 6 minutes; not enough time in a day. I remember discovering Henry in ¡SATIRISTAS!, a book I can’t recommend enough. I read his entry early Sunday afternoon, then realized at 8pm that I spent a good chunk the day just watching him talk. He has that kind of effect on you.
Here he is in conversation with Pharrell Williams. If you only have an hour to spare, these two videos are Henry Rollins in a wonderful ultra-condensed package.
