Henry Rollins has been a hero of mine since I got into Black Flag in 1984. Henry is a role model in his amazing taste and output in music, his political engagement, his monumental work ethic, and his social consciousness. Henry tours a ton and stays very aware of the world. Back before the 2008 recession started, Henry had an an editorial segment on his TV show where he said "the president says the fundamentals of the economy are strong...I say start learning Chinese". Henry's new tour is called CAPITALISM and I'm sure he will have a lot of wise, funny, and maybe prophetic things to say. I was given the honor by Henry of illustrating his concept for the tour, him as a beaten-down Uncle Sam. I have a few of the prints available on my site signed by both me and Henry. The rest will be available on Henry's tour which everyone should see. Pick a print up before the American brand of capitalism crumbles under the weight of its own ego.
