Henry Rollins was an angry young man. But not any more. ‘Now I’m an angry old man,laughs the punk rock icon, who turns 50 on Feb. 13. ‘And the older I get, the madder I get. I’m mad at The Man. I’m mad at elitism. I’m mad at my country’s foreign policy. I’m mad at that which makes a woman get shot in the head on a streetcorner in Tucson. Global climate change and people’s resistance to it — these things make me mad. Ever since I was young, I’ve been a fairly furious kind of person — always ticked-off. I’m just one of those people.”
