Henry Rollins came out of the woodwork in Washington D.C. in the early 1980’s as the lead singer of the heavy metal band Black Flag. At the time he was working for an ice cream shop making around three dollars an hour as the store manager. Henry contemplated his life at the time and subsided that it’s going to be tough. Waking up early every day to take it from customers to have little to show for it at the end of the day. This was a tough pill for him to swallow however he was willing to put in the work to get by, as he had already dropped out of college deciding his personality was completely resistant to conventional school structure. But something happened in the year of 1981, something unexpected.
Henry had just so happened to be friends with the band members of the Black Flag who at the time were holding an audition in Washington D.C. for their lead singer. Henry Rollins made a drastic decision that would change the course of his life forever. He left his job for the day and went to the audition and nailed it. He was now the new lead singer of his favorite band, Black Flag. Today Henry is a political activists for many topics and had lived a very interesting life. He is not your average Joe and has a lot to say about his country and fellow Americans. People to this day still look up to Henry for his ideation and progressive perspective on the world around us.
