Henry Garfield, 13 February 1961, Washington, DC, USA. Vocalist Rollins quickly returned to action following the break-up of hardcore legends Black Flag, releasing Hot Animal Machine, followed by the Drive By Shooting EP (under the pseudonym Henrietta Collins And The Wife Beating, Child Haters). The Rollins Band was eventually formed in 1987 with Chris Haskett (guitar), Andrew Weiss (bass) and Sim Cain (drums). The group developed their own brand of hard rock with blues and jazz influences, over several studio and live albums, building a considerable following with their heavy touring schedule. Rollins’ lyrics deal with social and political themes, often unashamedly exorcizing personal demons from a troubled childhood. The sight of the heavily muscled and tattooed frontman on stage, dripping sweat and roaring out his rage, is one of the most astonishing, memorable sights in hard rock music, topping off an enthralling live act.
