One might wonder when self-described “aging alternative icon” Henry Rollins finds time to sleep. Since joining the legendary punk band Black Flag in 1981, Rollins has made a habit of being on the road nearly 300 days a year. When he’s not touring with the Rollins Band, hosting TV and radio programs, and playing bit parts in movies, Rollins books spoken-word gigs around the world. Jet lag aside, Rollins keeps his commentary on politics and social issues razor-sharp and never lets his reputation as a hyper-serious musician get in the way of also being damned funny. He swings through the KC metro once a year, but Rollins banks enough tour stories, anecdotes and general musings to make his shows feel different and worth the price of admission.
