Biography

Born Henry Lawrence Garfield in Washington, D.C., on February 13, 1961, Henry Rollins is regarded as a punk rock icon for his work with Black Flag and the Rollins Band.

He is also an accomplished writer and actor. Growing up in Washington, D.C., Rollins’s mother, Iris Garfield, worked for the U.S. government in the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare.

His father, Paul Garfield, was an economist. When he was still very young, Rollins’s parents divorced, and he was subsequently raised by his mother.

Education

Rollins’s mother taught him how to read before he entered school. This interest in the printed word continued into his school years. As he explained to, “In school, I really didn’t dig math or science but I liked literature.”

Some of his earliest influences were writers John Steinbeck, Truman Capote and Ernest Hemingway.

Career

Musically, Rollins grew up listening to a diverse mix of music. He was, through his mother, exposed to classical compositions and the work of jazz legends Miles Davis and John Coltrane, as well as such classic rock greats as the Doors.

With his friend, Ian MacKaye, Rollins began developing his own musical sensibility as a teenager. He went to performances by the Clash and the Ramones, which turned him on to punk.

From 1981 to ’86, Rollins established himself as a leading hard-core punk figure. He became known for his high-energy, aggressive singing style.

Being in Black Flag could also be combative. During the making of his first record with the group, Damaged, Rollins explained to The New York Times, “We were broke and at each other’s throats, but every song we wrote was first-rate.”
