“The best revenge is to survive yourself.”-Rollins

Oddly enough I was introduced to Henry Rollins through his poetry long before I heard any of his music.  Although I like both the Rollins band and Black Flag, I really am into his spoken word and his writing. His first book that I bought “Art to Choke Hearts and Pissing in the Gean Pool” changed my somewhat traditional view of the way that verse and thought could be created and explored. I am also a huge fan of “Eye Scream” and “Black Coffee Blues“. To be honest you really can’t go wrong with the guy. I was at an event for the LA Weekly that he was DJ’ing and it took me 45 min. just to get the balls up to go shake his hand and introduce myself.  Super nice, very approachable and extremely intelligent.  His work is well worth the read. If you find yourself in a book store killing some time just pick up any of his books and flip to a random page and you will get the vibe that Rollins is so well know for. Enjoy my friends-
