I saw Henry Rollins in Johannesburg in May for the second time this year and got to meet him for the second time as well

If you stick around for a bit after the show he usually comes out and meets the fans and signs whatever paraphernalia you may have. He signed my Black Coffee Blues book and depsite his tougher than Chuck Norris and Till Lindemann put together stance, he is a very friendly guy

So, I was wondering if we have any other Rollins fans on this forum and if anyone else has met him?

I haven't had a chance to catch seeing him perform but I do like to listen to him online when I can.

Yes, Henry is like a god to me! I love his philosophy on life, his no bulls :x: t attitude, his contribution to music and his sheer tenacity. He's a fantastic role model, I think. He did a spoken word tour here in the UK recently which I sadly had to miss because of lack of funds, but when he comes back I AM GOING! I'd love to meet him and pick his brains, but I just don't think I'd be able to speak with such a huge idol of mine standing right in front of me. I think I'd actually probably do this...

LOL Nola!

Yes he is quite intimidating...the closer he got to me the more nervous I got. Like I've read some people say about Till, he also looks larger than life on stage but he is a lot more slender and more diminutive in person but with his dark eyes and heavy brow he is quite scary. Then he smiles at you, shakes your hand and starts to chat! He signed my book saying that he could never write such dark stuff anymore. I also sent a thank you for the show message to him via his website and got a personal response from the man himself WOW. He has also aged significantly and gone quite grey but keeps himself in fantastic shape. He also keeps up to date on world issues and learns about each country he visits...he is definitely not a fool!

And he is most certainly easy on the eye :speddrool:
Needs a drool bucket of his own :D

What can I say...I like my boys hardcore :twisted:

Sorry the quality is so crap - the lighting in there was terrible and my hubby was nervous because security didn't seem too keen on pictures been taken - it was Henry who said no problem, security originally said no photos :)

Cool to know there's other fans on here. :D I've never been to one of his tours but it's on my bucket list. On his last one he came to a city that's only two hours away from me and I was crushed that I couldn't go. He's one of my biggest role models/inspirations and he's just so damn talented. Love him to bits. ^_^
