I didn’t put this one bit in the headline because I don’t want to alarm anyone, but Henry Rollins isn’t planning on playing music again anytime soon. A 2006 tour with X burnt out Rollins, it seems, or as he put it in an interview with Popeater: “I felt kind of like being in the fifth year at university, and I should kind of be moving on… It just seemed like a younger guy should be doing this.”
The good news, though, is that Rollins is staying busy with other projects, including a stint acting on FX’s Sons of Anarchy, a few more rant-filled books, and a documentary called H for Hunger.
“Last summer I shot a documentary that I co-financed and it’s about hunger, which I narrated, it’s not my script but I narrated,” Rollins added later in that same interview. “The guy on camera behind me films everything from people starving to people at hot dog eating contests. We got a lot of the footage from the World Food Program.”
‘Tis the season for giving profits to charity, as Rollins said the biggest hurdle in getting the film released has been figuring out a way to disperse profits to charity and compensate production/distribution costs. Perhaps Bob Dylan’s people could lend a few tips.
