Questions for Henry Rollins?

Postby Stu Levitan » Tue Oct 02, 2012 9:12 pm

Prepping interview with spoken word artist Henry Rollins (coming to Barrymore on Oct. 9). Anybody got any questions?

IIRC he hates Moby, NIN, U2, and Springsteen. So you could taunt him about that.

Yes, Lawrence, what is your question? Or are you just taunting me for using "got" instead of "have"?

Igor, I don't know what "IIRC" means.

Maybe quiz him a bit to see how familiar he is with Wisconsin's populist tradition, then see whether he has opinions about why much of the state has fallen into a sclerotic condition of wingnut conformity. Has the notion of free inquiry been completely lost?

Does he rembember Waukesha Angry Man from the 2008 campaign?

Ask him why he's such a pussy.

IIRC in this context stands for "If I recall correctly"

I was able to find this the same place I found YMMV - the google.

Ask him if he remembers when the Lubricants cut off the head of a dead pig at Merlyns during their warm up set for BF.

Or congratulate him for his discerning taste.

Too funny. Stu actually did ask Henry why he hates U2 and Springsteen, to which Henry replied that he doesn't hate Springsteen.

Heh.

I actually enjoy a lot of U2's older stuff. War and Boy are probably my favorites, but I find them listenable through The Joshua Tree. After that, not so much.
