Henry Rollins Swings by Canada on World Tour

Henry Rollins Swings by Canada on World Tour
Hardcore punk rock icon and television show host Henry Rollins really needs to express himself more. He should learn to talk things out instead of keeping it all bottled up. It's as if there's a cork stuck right in his mouth, he's so mum all the time.

Of course, we were kidding about that mum stuff. As you know, the guy's certainly got the gift of gab. He's released ten spoken word records over the past decade, the most recent being 2008's Uncut From Israel. Get it? Uncut in a Jewish country... irony? Never mind.

Well, the former Black Flag and Rollins Band front-man, author (11 books in all), publisher and film star has announced that he will once again hit the road for a spoken word performance.

It's going to be a massive undertaking this time around. Hank (as he's affectionately known) is scheduled to enlighten the masses of Europe, Canada and the United States with his quips about life, music, experiences as a punk, as a star and, well, whatever the fuck seems to come to the top of his head. As if we could predict that.
