The Full Range Rage of Henry Rollins

An interview with Henry Rollins may seem like an intimidating one — not only because the punk rocker, actor and spoken word artist’s hulking frame, myriad of tattoos, steely brush cut and bristling stare leave him looking like a discharged drill sergeant. His demeanor seems to hold an even deeper intensity, especially during his impassioned spoken word rants about current affairs that he’ll bring to the Crest Theatre June 3.

That intensity was also showcased in the questions he posed to his guests on “The Henry Rollins Show.” He would sit on the edge of his seat, posture rigid, each query rapidly fired as he pounced on subjects with a rigorous vigor that could leave any reporter worried he might answer questions with equal aggression.

“Angry? I wouldn’t classify myself as such,” Rollins said of the flimsy, leftist labels the media tries to pin on him. “I get onstage and tell it like I see it, which takes a lot of vigor, because I’m genuinely into what I do.”
