A quietly amazing show from one of the most versatile people in music

Rollins (real name: Henry Lawrence Garfield) has been around for decades and seems to have done everything at some point. Starting as a punk rocker in the 1980's and '90's, he quickly branched out in every aspect of media and has been the owner of a record label (Black Flag), a radio and TV host, TV and movie actor (he has appeared in over 30 movies and countless TV shows), voice-over artist, and the author of half a dozen books... there seems to be nothing in media Rollins can't do. He hasn't had a relationship since he was in his 20's, by choice, He is voluntarily childless. Fronting the Henry Rollins Band, to me he was most memorable some 20 odd years ago as a video on Beavis and Butthead performing the oddly creepy/funny song "Liar" (while B & B provide the narration). When you hear the song you can't help but think of somebody you've met who fit the lyrics to a T - and who can forget them?

Cause I'm a liar, yeah, I'm a liar I'll tear your mind out, I'll burn your soul I'll turn you into me, I'll turn you into me 'Cause I'm a liar, a liar, a liar, a liar, a liar.. (Maniacal laughter)

Despite having been around on the fringes of, well, everything for over 30 years, Rollins has not lost any of the steam that made him relevant - and if anything he seems to be gathering momentum yet again. Other recent appearances ("Portlandia") highlight Rollins' chameleon-like ability to create his own niche nearly effortlessly and this show is one more example. In this one-man show/documentary/comedy special/? we hear Henry's sometimes startling stories and observations on his life, his music, his opinions, strange experiences he has had and plenty more. Henry is the rare kind of musician that defies categorization; but if you're familiar with Rollins - and especially if you're not - this Showtime documentary is probably worth a look. It's a peek into the mind of one of the most amazing, prolific, and yet little-known personalities in show business.

Extremely Intelligent but Predictably Ignorant

Henry's delivery and structure is truly incredible but he's clearly a product of his generation and the media supplying its ideas. It's quite a shame.

Barely any spoilers

Keep talking, pal, is right. Henry Rollins' mind fascinates me. He is uber intelligent, and I am mesmerized by his rapid-fire, captivating, storytelling approach. He shows vulnerability by showing us his raw truth. He is an expert speaker, going quickly, keeping our attention fixed on his words, lest we lose something, but he also clearly articulates, and allows just enough time for our own processing to occur. If you enjoy mental stimulation, I highly recommend viewing this talk.

As far as humor, his style draws laughter out of me with a start. My mind is processing what he is saying, so quickly, that the laugh bursts forth before I even realize it's coming. It is a wonderful feeling.

Lately, I've been feeling a bit old and tired too, and I truly believe that it is time for the young, energetic people to take up the torch. My main take away is that we can and we must still stand: stand for them, stand behind them, stand with them. Generation X opened the path wider, and now they will see it through to the next level. After watching this, I will remember to support the torch bearers more loudly. It IS exciting to see what changes they will affect in my lifetime!

To the reviewers that are shocked by Henry Rollins' words. I saw him speak, well over a decade ago, maybe two, and he was just as open-minded, supportive of diversity, and loud in his support of equal rights for ALL people. If anything, his staunch stance in this talk was a bit milder (due to the aforementioned old and tired torch passing.) The audience, for his talks, has long been filled with thinking folk. Keep listening, pals.
