Old Rage Pensioner: Rollins Rips It Up On Warped
“They ask every year,” the former Black Flag frontman told MTV. “I say, ‘No. I don’t want to waste everyone’s time’. When you’re 16, why do you want to see a man with grey hair playing primitive caveman music? They’ll be bored. And a half hour set does not satisfy old Hank – I need two hours to get it on.”
However, when the offer was shortened to just one week’s stint, Rollins thought his arthritis could handle it and finally decided to give in.
“What the hell? We’ll endure excruciating half-hour sets, and then a week later be grinding it out back where we should be – in the clubs.”
In other Rollins news, the band will release ‘Nice’, the follow up to 1998′s ‘Get Some Go Again’, in September through SPV.
