Henry Rollins (born Henry Lawrence Garfield; February 13, 1961) is an American musician, writer, journalist, publisher, actor, television and radio host, spoken word artist, comedian, and activist. Rollins hosts a weekly radio show on KCRW. He is also a regular columnist for LA Weekly and Rolling Stone Australia.

After performing for the short-lived Washington D.C.-based band State of Alert in 1980, Rollins fronted the California hardcore punk band Black Flag from August 1981 until mid-1986. Following the band's breakup, Rollins established the record label and publishing company 2.13.61 to release his spoken word albums, as well as forming the Rollins Band, which toured with a number of lineups from 1987 until 2003, and during 2006.

Since Black Flag disbanded, Rollins has hosted numerous radio shows, such as Harmony in My Head on Indie 103, and television shows such as The Henry Rollins Show, MTV's 120 Minutes, and Jackass. He had recurring dramatic roles in the second season of Sons of Anarchy, in the final seasons of the animated series The Legend of Korra as Zaheer, and has also had roles in several films. Rollins has also campaigned for various political causes in the United States, including promoting LGBT rights, World Hunger Relief, and an end to war in particular.

Rollins was detained and questioned as a possible terrorist threat by the Australian government when he was seen reading the book Jihad: The Rise of Militant Islam in Central Asia on an airplane.

As of 2013, Rollins is also the host of the educational history television series 10 Things You Don't Know About, joining the show for its second and third seasons. New episodes air weekly on H2 in the U.


Henry Rollins a grandi à Washington (district de Columbia) principalement élevé par sa mère, à la suite du divorce de ses parents.
Il est envoyé très jeune à l'école militaire, dont il déteste l'ambiance mais où il va acquérir le sens de la discipline et du travail qui, selon ses dires, lui ont permis de faire carrière.

Il s'implique dans la scène punk locale grâce à son ami Ian MacKaye (membre de Minor Threat et Fugazi) et devient chanteur du groupe State of Alert (SOA). Le groupe se sépare rapidement.
Il enchaîne les petits boulots, jusqu’à ce qu'il fasse la connaissance du groupe Black Flag dont il deviendra un grand fan et ami. Très vite, il est invité à tenir le poste de chanteur.
Sa présence scénique impressionnante fait de lui un membre permanent du groupe qui va connaître un grand succès jusqu'en 1986, année durant laquelle le groupe va se séparer.

Henry Rollins va alors s'entourer de musiciens pour mener une carrière avec son groupe : Rollins Band.

Parallèlement à la musique, Rollins a débuté très tôt une carrière d'acteur. La plupart de ses prestations se limite toutefois à des seconds rôles. En 2009, il est A.J. Weston, personnage raciste et séparatiste, dans la série Sons of Anarchy (saison 2).

Il apparaît dans le jeu vidéo "Def Jam: fight for NY"; un jeu de combat avec plusieurs rappeurs.

En décembre 2009, il participe à l'album "The Flaming Lips and Stardeath and White Dwarfs With Henry Rollins and Peaches Doing the Dark Side of the Moon" des Flaming Lips, album reprenant l'intégrale de Dark Side of the Moon de Pink Floyd.

A Band Called Death is the story of three musician brothers, born to a Baptist preacher and his wife in 1950s Detroit. In their teenage years, the three brothers (to five other siblings) emerge as, first, a budding rock/funk band, ultimately evolving into punk band Death. Influenced by music by Alice Cooper and The Who, the group was heavily-steered by the guidance and decisions of visionary eldest brother and guitarist, David Hackney. The story follows the brothers' unsuccessful attempts to get radio airplay and a record deal, largely due to David's adamant refusal to change the name from Death. An eventual trek east finds the boys in Burlington, Vermont, living with relatives and reflecting on the failure of David's vision. We begin to explore post-Death projects in The 4th Movement, a gospel/rock band with the same line-up. However, after two years of being homesick, David returns to Detroit, leaving Dannis and Bobby to form a lively reggae band called Lambsbread. The film also focuses on the intense brotherly bond between the group members, and their personal lives, including David Hackney's battle with alcoholism, his death in 2000 and his family members' reactions to these events. The film follows the re-discovery of the group through record collectors leading to an eventual release of Death's album ...For the Whole World to See by the Drag City record label and the group's eventual reunion and touring with a new guitarist.
