Henry Rollins had one of the more diverse careers in punk rock, evolving from the fearsome lead singer of Black Flag to a respected writer, actor and monologist. Raised in DC, Rollins attended American University for one semester but fell under the punk-rock spell by 1979, getting into the Ramones with his friend Ian MacKaye. He began working with various local bands, sometimes as a roadie for MacKaye's early band Teen Idles (MacKaye would later form the more celebrated Fugazi), occasionally jumping onstage with the Bad Brains, and joining the band State of Alert. Most significantly he heard the early singles by the California band Black Flag and began writing to them; by the time they played the East Coast he was known to them as a friend and fan. Black Flag had now been through three singers and after singing a number with them in New York, Rollins became the fourth and best-known.
