Quotation of Henry Rollins

Quotation of Henry Rollins

Quotation of Henry Rollins

Quotation of Henry Rollins


I don't mean to be arrogant and I really appreciate my fans but talking about what I am doing is not something I'm good at. I do what I do and that's it. I want to get back to my work and do more of it instead of talking about it.
Quotation of Henry Rollins


I don't mind The Boss. I think he's an honest guy. I have some of his records, not all of them. I've met a couple of the E-Street guys, and they seem really cool.

Quotation of Henry Rollins

Quotation of Henry Rollins

Quotation of Henry Rollins


I'm 36 and if I met a woman of my own age and married her, I'd also be marrying her former life, her past. It might be OK for some people - I don't want to judge it or anything - but it's not for me. It would destroy my creativity.
Quotation of Henry Rollins

Quotation of Henry Rollins

Quotation of Henry Rollins

Quotation of Henry Rollins


What I don't want to do is go out there and not be able to mean it, you know?
