TONY JONES: A heavily tattooed ex-punk singer with a loathing of the Bush Government is not the most obvious person to be voted one of the US military's most loved entertainers. But Henry Rollins would be the first to admit the irony. The singer turned actor and activist is singling out the Bush administration for making the US more hated in the world and he says that, as one of its allies, Australia should not expect to be immune. Hamish Fitzsimmons caught up with Rollins in Sydney where he's currently performing.

I think he should shutup before we get Al Pacino to push him out of a window for real....

Granted Black Flag ruled, but they were better pre-Rollins. Some of his solo work kicks ass, but I really don't give a fuck what he thinks about the Bush Administration.

And we care about this moron's opinion because...........................................?

Yeah, we are the most hated now because we no longer bend over and take it from the wannabes and terrorists of the world.

Oh look....yet another celebrity with an opinion

I have a great idea for famous people that disagree with the politics of our leaders....

Run for offce yourself!!!
Thats right, run for an elected position and then if you get elected, make whatever changes you desire.

And if you dont get elected, its probably because you arent relevant....and perhaps you should STFU!!!

He says he supports the troops and yet turns around and shits on their CIC and their mission that is supported by the VAST majority of military personel.

"I support you but I shit on what you believe... but I still support you."

I've seen him speak publicly a few times and once spent about 10 minutes in 1-on-1 conversation after one of his performances. He's a remarkably intelligent guy with a long list of lifetime achievements, and really, all the name-calling and brainless remarks from the people on this site doesn't really do anything to change those facts.

I may not agree with everything he says, but I respect his intellect and the thought process behind it. Not that I expect anyone who has replied to this thread so far to understand that...

He was in either VH1's 80's or 90's nostalgic show being oh-so-clever or oh-so-sarcastic just like the rest of the Z-list guest hosts.

I don't agree with alot of his beliefs either. But he does alot of USO shows, goes out of the way to hang out with the soldiers, and doesn't give political commentary during his shows on military bases.

You might not agree him, but name another critic of the Bush administration that has done several shows in Afghanistan and Iraq for the troops?

A few successful bands and a lot of his "Spoken Word" cds, which are pretty much just rants.

He's been an icon in some circles of subculture for awhile.

Speaks his mind and doesn't give a shi what others think.

That's about it, I think - I'm not much of Henry Rollins information database.

He's afraid of one day bringing fists to a gun fight!
