One of the more enjoyable Rollins books I've read, this is another of his series of vignettes and stories from the road, as well as a couple of interviews he's done along the way. Yes, his "rage" is still present, with numerous references to killing people who piss him off - at least in his mind - but it's not as oppressive as in some of his other works. Read the story of his high school teacher and his strange motivational speech "You're a skinny little faggot" for an insight into HR's persona. Worth reading for Rollins fans, and won't give you nightmares if you fall asleep reading in bed. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

'I believe that one defines oneself by re-invention. To not be like your parents. To not be like your friends. To be yourself. To cut yourself out of stone.' With the addictive intensity, irreverence and humour for which he is renowned, Henry Rollins interviews and writes about some of his musical heroes, as well as laying himself bare in his private journals. Discover exactly what he thought of Jane's Addiction, Nine Inch Nails and Ice-T as they journeyed across the US together on the 1991 Lollapalooza Tour with the frustration of playing in front of indifferent crowds, dealing with groupies and the daily trials of life on the Road. Meet Rollins the music fan, as he explains how Dave Lee Roth inspired him to get into music, what it was like to interview greats like John Lee Hooker and Isaac Hayes, why Roky Erickson is unlike anyone you will ever meet and what happened the day he met 'Killer' Jerry Lee Lewis.… (more)
