Henry Rollins has posted another blog on LA Weekly.
In the short amount of space afforded here, hear me out. Like a lot of people, I have battled depression all my life. Itís nothing special, in that itís too common to be considered unique. This state has made me have to do things in a certain way to remain operational. There have been some truly awful stretches, as I am sure there have been for anyone who deals with depression, that have at times rendered me almost paralytic. Hours pass and I slow-cook on a cold spit. I have likened it to being a peach in a can of syrup yet fully conscious. In an attempt to keep moving along, I must stay in the immediate present tense, acutely aware of...

Henry Rollins issued an apology about his recent comments on suicide. LA Weekly will be posting another piece from Rollins on Monday.
For the last 9+ hours, I have been answering letters from people from all over the world. The anger is off the scale and in my opinion, well placed. The article I wrote in the LA Weekly about suicide caused a lot of hurt. This is perhaps one of the bigger understatements of all time. I read all the letters. Some of them were very long and the disappointment, resentment and ringing clarity was jarring. That I hurt anyone by what I said, and I did hurt many, disgusts me. It was not at all my intent but it most certainly was the result.

I have had a...

Henry Rollins has penned a piece for LA Weekly called "Fuck Suicide."
When someone negates their existence, they cancel themselves out in my mind. I have many records, books and films featuring people who have taken their own lives, and I regard them all with a bit of distain. When someone commits this act, he or she is out of my analog world. I know they existed, yet they have nullified their existence because they willfully removed themselves from life. They were real but now they are not. I no longer take this person seriously. I may be able to appreciate what he or she did artistically but itís impossible to feel bad for them. Their life wasnít cut short ó it was purposely...

You can check out Punknews.org recent interview with Henry Rollins here.
I am angry all the time. It is not an anger that manifests itself in destruction of property, and I am not looking for a fight, but if you have a sense of right and wrong, and your head is pulled out, there is a lot to be angry about. If you think everything is ok, then to me you're ok with everything, from marriage inequality to people trying to vote down the Violence Against Women Act. You can't let these cowards get away with this stuff.

Check out an interview with Henry Rollins on X106.7 in Columbus, Ohio. The interview goes over a wide variety of things: messing with TMZ photographers, how he didn't fall into the rock and roll lifestyle of the 80s and 90s, the new Capitalism tour, and his Nat Geo specials.

QueerPunks.com has an interview with Henry Rollins where he discusses homophobia, sexuality, and his new projects.
Excerpt From InterviewHR: Basically, I am sick of the ignorance, hatred and all the bullshit. The truth that someone is gay is as odd as the fact that someone is straight. It is what it is, thereís nothing new about homosexuality and these people either need to evolve or get the fuck out of the way. If they want to hate, fine but they will have to keep it to themselves or expect complete turbulence from me. Itís insane to me that someone has that kind of time in their day to hate someone for what they canít help and for what there is absolutely nothing wrong with.
