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 a weeks 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.
