    via towleroad, from a sydney web site:

    Henry Rollins is a big man with big biceps, a big smile and even bigger ideas that fly at you a million miles a minute as he recounts the inspiring tale of how he’s dedicated himself to a project of living life in a large way.

    Having gone from heading one of the most influential punk bands, Black Flag, to publishing his own books and hosting one of the most original and thought-provoking talk shows around, Rollins gives the impression that he might have been the type of kid to spit in the face of any guidance counsellor who tried to peg him down to one profession.

    Spending months at a time on the road travelling through some of the world’s most troublesome spots – Pakistan, Iran and, in a few months, the wilds of Laos and North Korea – Rollins puts his life on the line to accrue what he terms “field evidence” to recount to awestruck audiences at his spoken word performances.

    [non-relevant stuff deleted]

    Going against what’s expected and deemed appropriate is what Rollins is known for - a personality trait developed early on in his life.

    While attending a military school, Rollins was struck with disgust as a teacher’s open attacks on a gay student led to the boy attempting suicide. It stayed with him as a defining event and he has gone on to publicly lambast institutions and propagators of homophobia.

    He hosted the successful Wedrock concert to raise awareness of same-sex rights to marriage and has made his views on gay rights well known.

    While still strongly denying all rumours that he is gay, Rollins puts across the message for gay rights strongly and simply. “To me it’s just common sense. You come out of the womb and you’re something. You’re straight, you’re gay or you’re lucky,” he said.

    “You know what you are very soon in your life. So when someone says you can’t love that person, you can’t marry that person I’m like, ‘Really, fuck you!’ Boy, if I was gay I would kick your arse!”

    Hmmm...or you're lucky. Could my dreams have come true? Could he at least be bi?

    YUM

    agreed - he's amazing; one of the top 3 people I'd love to meet and have dinner with! :0)

    His show on fuse...i catch it when I can, but it never disappoints. He speaks his mind no matter what - honesty has never looked so hot!

    I always liked him. His open attitude, his perspective on all things in art and culture. His ability to separate quality from personal taste. That's one of the reasons that I liked his TV show so much.
    He is straight but gay friendly. He'd be a great straight best friend.

    Morgan's Ferry was 9 years ago. Look at the grim reaper tat on his left forearm. You can see it in shoelessj's pic and spryte's pic.

    It'd be a pretty cool club. Imagine working out! (I always thought it would be great to be Rollins' workout buddy.)

    Rollins has had the Search and Destroy tat since well before 1991. It was used as the cover for the Rollins Band's End of Silence album cover. Rollins also has an Einsturzende Neubauten tat on his upper right shoulder that is missing in that pic.


    Also, since it would appear Hippie4life is slacking, Henry is a vegetarian.

    He also is a great public speaker:

    so my guess is that the tattoo was covered up for the movie. That's how I rationalized things. Cause he has had that tattoo since he was a skinny little thing in the 80's. I think the ore hot pictures we have for proof, the better...

    Watching him live you really get the extent of his total manly sexiness...
