I was raised by my mother , Iris, in Washington, DC. Almost immediately upon my entry into the world my parents divorced, and to this day I don't know why. Once I was out of diapers, I spent weekdays with Mom and weekends with Dad. My mother had a profound influence on me. My home today looks like the apartments she and I lived in: there's art on the walls, lots of books, too many records and no TV. Henry Rollins.
Punk rock icon Henry Rollins has confirmed that he hasn't had a serious romantic relationship in years. Not that I'm steeped in infidelity — one relationship is more than I can handle. I fail. I'm a workaholic, and that gets worse when I get older.
The punk icon has issues with women, but I obsessed over his albums and poetry books anyway. In a fair world, Henry Rollins would be a gym teacher. He wouldn't be elevated to the punk icon status he's held for over three decades, let alone the subversive teen idol for a girl entering high school, which is exactly how things worked out. Instead, I focused my fascination on a short, hypermasculine loudmouth who had issues with rage and even bigger issues with women.
