Even that puffy dude from Danzig could probably kick his ass now.

//SERIES PREMEIRES SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2 AT 9:00PM ET

New York, NY – October 25, 2013 – H2® presents 10 THINGS YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT, starring punk rock icon, author and actor, Henry Rollins as he uncovers crazy new twists and tidbits behind the historical tales, figures, and places you only thought you knew. The new series will premiere on Saturday, November 2 at 9:00PM ET on H2.

“To me, the only way to make history talk, for it to really grab you, is to get as close to it as possible”, says Henry Rollins, “You need incredible access and a great deal of persistence to get where you want to go. We did it.”//

Funny.

Sounds gritty and a bit slam, which one should expect from Henry.

Interested to see how it translates into regular TV.

Thanks for the heads up.

Rollins looks old and slow and non-relevant. He is nothing like the vital angry pumped up dude from a while back. Maybe low T?

and he has lost his "bull neck".

I saw Danzig beat up a dude in the crowd who duffed him in the head with a beer can. He did this awesome move where he threw his mic @ the guy & hit him right in the face then pulled it back, caught it & kept singing.

At the end of the song he said- where is that pussy??!! And some ppl hoisted the guy, buddy flipped old Glen 2 birds & he lost it & turned a different color than pasty white & did a pretty sweet flying punch from up on the stage & knocked the instigator right off! Security ended it there but made for a memorable show.

Yeah too much steroids for that guy. I think Rollins would take him.

Henry must be experiencing "aging".

It happens to all of us.

I'll watch that.

I liked his spoken word stuff back in the early 90's, and of course Black Flag.

So, a large portion of the males on this forum can relate to him.

Too bad Keith Morris was actually more responsible for the songs that put Black Flag on the map. I still think Herny's best work was when he was in S.O.A. I have their one and only EP somewhere,... 1 of 500 I think? Probably going down in value everytime Henry does one of these lame TV appearances.

Doesn't he have a column in the LA Weekly? If it's the one I'm thinking about, I read it occaisionally and it's pretty entertaining. (although he does seem to think he's more "in the know" than you are (edit: which he probably is)).

I can't believe he hasn't just "come out". BFD. Henry, live the life you were born to live.

I think that Danzig dude is gay too. He lived in his Moms basement doing curls and pulling tubes until he was like 30. Is he out?

to be gay in wyoming, now that would be pretty heavy.
vid/interview is obviously pre brokeback mountain, eh?

edit: why should someone have to disclose their sexual orientation, or preference anyway. but, being in the public eye as much as he was/is, ya think he would have babes hanging all over him and plenty of pics, etc! cud be pullin a rock hudson, i suspose. but he seems pretty adamant that he's not. regardless, who cares...well, obviously Russ, lol!

BTW, Russ yer either getting way to efn PC on us, or ya got the driest sense of humor on the planet. Since yer reputation precedes you, I suspect the latter. Plus, the Danzig quips kinda gave it away (funny as hell, btw). But, wudeVah (you'll always keep us guessing). :)

Great, now I got a member of the supertopo inner circle (aka, Taco Mafia/Mob) and his side kick pissed off at me. BTW, I was planning on showing up and paying respects at the Bloots gig next week. Now I might have to change my plans. Don't know about Russ, but pretty sure Lockers got a mean streak running in him that he cloaks with his funny guy persona. Probably get beat up, or takin for a ride, or whatever. Or maybe they might hire somebody to break an arm or leg, or accidentally push me off the top of something. Hell, I've probably got enough peeps on this site pissed off at me by now that there would be plenty of volunteers. Wouldn't cost them a damn thing. In fact, I can envision a mob forming, coming after me with baseball bats, ice axes/tools, etc! All it would take is, "Who is that old fart?" I will have to come up with an alias, no way I'm gonna put, "Splitter" on one of those flaky stickem on name tags that they use at all these type of functions. Probably would end up like Jack Nicholson's character in "Easy Rider"...pummeled to death in the middle of the night by a mob of baseball bat and crowbar wielding rednecks. I'll have to put a mannequin in my sleeping bag every night just in case. Yikes! Hey, I was only joking about you and Locker (i think). lol

Seriously? Shucks. I guess I'll have to take down all my Danzig posters in my bedroom and hang them in my bathroom, or somewhere. Well, maybe the bathroom wouldn't be such a good idea. Might conflict with my Farah Fawcett poster. NTTIAWWT! Having both posters side by side. I mean, some peoples roll that way, eh?

Didn't read the Rolling Stone article, but I do know that Danzig's significant other for a number of years (don't think they were actually married/not sure) was one of the gals in this iconic Danzig song/vid...

the gal that starts dancing @2:17

edit: great song, btw!!

Deekaid "now you can put them up on your ceiling." LOL

Great suggestion. Along with a pic of Danzig's significant other. ;)

B&B were the ultimate headbangers. They had the inside scoop on all the groupie chicks, also. They probably banged...errr, banged heads with her, eh?

Nope.

Misfits & Danzig concerts cud definitely raise some hell, eh?

Live version of 'Mother' on Halloween '93 in SoCal (Irvine, Ca) & same year at a gig in Germany.

I saw Black Flag at the Stone (or was it Mabuhay Gardens?) on Broadway in San Francisco sometime in the mid 80's. While watching the video monitor from near the back, I had time to nudge my girlfriend, lean over to see first hand and looking back at the monitor, see a guy in the front holding a bic lighter to Henry's cutoff clad crotch! It took him a minute to feel the heat, but when he did, he swung! The guy was hauled out by security. I read in the Chronicle the next day, that the guy was arrested later that night for cutting the break lines on the Black Flag van! Musta had a beef with 'ol Henry. I haven't read "Get in the van", his account of touring with Black Flag, but it MUST be in there. Anyone here read it?

Ok, I watched the show. Rollins is now a poor mans version of Jessie "Conspiracy Theory" Ventura but with less chin dimple. He is about one rung above Geraldo Rivera, and is waltzing down a flaccid path that Mike Wallace has never even seen.

Speaking of nervous breakdowns, if Rollins sees this thread, that chin dimple remark will surely "push him over the edge". ;)
