Author(s): Henry Rollins
The contents of this book were written all over the world, usually on tour. You get full disclosure of the character building experiences of a young man grinding it out on the independent music circuit. Famine, bitter cold, mean women, crazy women, no women at all. Clouds of locusts fill the sky and the gas gauge hits empty at every turn. When you need to wallow in the mire of your existence with a fellow self-obsessed insomnia-ridden megalomaniac and your friends no longer pick up the phone when you call, reach for this book.
Henry Garfield started singing in the DC punk band State of Alert before changing his name and becoming a legendary punk figure as frontman for Black Flag and his own Rollins Band. He started acting after doing several ads and MTV appearances, and his tattooed, musclebound body and gravel voice was a natural for tough guy roles in Hollywood features. Henry Rollins is the author of several books, and is also a renowned spoken word performer, making countless appearances at theatres and colleges worldwide.
