Last month I spoke with Henry Rollins, the world’s most ambitious man. Not content with his contribution to the 80’s punk movement with band Black Flag, he has tried his hand at acting, writing, publishing and spoken word. Basically, he’s a big deal, and his die-hard determination, makes Rollins — trademark buzz cut, bulging biceps and numerous tatts — a force to be reckoned with.
Even to this day, he follows punk rock ideology, something I wish I was more apt at embracing. For example, when I speak with him, he says things like, “I’m trying to run at it as best I can. My philosophy can be summed up in two words: Fuck It.”
Seriously, he said that. That should be on a tee shirt. Except it would be too long. Since meeting him though I have found it empowering to ask myself, in certain situations — what would Henry do?
