But what you lacked in consistency and talent, you made up for with prodigious output and an unparalleled intensity.
It was this intensity that made you a source of fascination for many. To cut yourself out of stone” and to “Keep your blood clean, your bodies lean, and your minds sharp.” Heady stuff for impressionable youths.
Dear Henry Rollins, In a recent interview you expressed concern, like so many of our other socially conscious celebrities, that the so-called “War on Women” was slowing the wheels of progressive permissiveness.
It caused me to reflect on why I’m no longer much of a fan.
While you seem to think your political opinions are still perceptive and edgy, they’re mostly recognizable as the default liberal opinions of the LA set you hang with these days.
But having read a few books by Howard Zinn or Noam Chomsky does not make you somehow more enlightened than the average Joe with whom you claim affinity but toward whom you actually condescend. But whichever it is, Henry, your self-serving stories about visiting the troops through the USO and knocking around the Third World to see how the other half lives—once so entertaining—have become intolerable these past couple of years.
Frankly, Henry, the band was at its best when you weren’t singing.
Still, it was during that otherwise forgettable decade that you began to forge something of a unique and compelling persona, committing yourself to physical fitness and acquiring a number of distinctive tattoos, many of them atrocious. You had by then come into your own as a kind of countercultural “renaissance man.” There were books, music (often lackluster), spoken-word performances, and movie roles (mostly bad).

Yes, the eternal bachelor, Henry Rollins, has a girlfriend and has recently had to meet her parents.
From what Henry has said in the past we can only assume that Miss Right is a reader, of adult books (not Harry Potter), and also that she has a sense of humour. From what he’s told us about his personal life he could only have met someone he was working with.
Considering Henry’s locale that must narrow it down somewhat. I think that Janeane Garofalo’s name would have been high on the list but she is a NY girl which would make dating difficult.
