Daft Punk

Rolling Stone: Did you follow any of the bigger things, like Daft Punk or "Blurred Lines"?

Henry Rollins: I've never heard Daft Punk; I've never heard a track of theirs in my life. They're the two guys with motorcycle helmets on?

Rolling Stone: Yeah, they dress up like robots.

Henry Rollins: You know what, you will take this any way you will. That to me is like Rolling Stone music. It's the shit that's in your magazine. And it's like, that world. . . I'm so glad that you all have found your people, but that world is so alienating to me. Anything that gets on the Grammys or the American Music Awards. . . like, was Miley Cyrus on the cover of your magazine?

Rolling Stone: She was.

Henry Rollins: Yeah, see, I like real music. John Coltrane's my favorite musician, what am I doing reading Rolling Stone? You know what I mean?

Of course, Rolling Stone would have Coltrane on its cover if people would BUY a Rolling Stone issue with Coltrane on the cover.

Henry Rollins does voice overs for luxury car commercials. What a fucking hypocrite.

Its cool to like shitty radio music "not ironically" now.

Yalls are a bunch of faggos.

Good for Rollins. He comes from an era where the kids weren't so faggity.

100% bet a kidney on it sure thing that Trane's music goes clean over the heads of both Henry Rollins and Jann Wenner.

Yeah, fuck you Rollins! You can't get down with dated late-90s style electronica, you hypocrite!

Posted by Anonymous | December 23, 2013 1:33 AM

i dunno, i like to appreciate pop music and real music as different entities. i think he's kind of alienating himself. also, hard to not get down to Discovery, plus that shit is kinda actually punk as fuck with the bitcrushing and hard compression. no one had done that before. whatever. it's just music

John Coltrane is his favorite musician? Then maybe he should do an interview with Down Beat instead of Rolling Fucking Stone.

Posted by Anonymous | December 23, 2013 9:02 AM

I've never heard them,and his comments about Rolling Stone music is right on....these artists that shift so many units have nothing to offer like hooks or emotion or even a memorable chorus.

I've never heard of Henry Rollins; I've never heard a track of his in my life. He played the host character in Wrong Turn 2: "Dead End", right?

So, seriously? Rollins was NEVER in a bar or store when One More Time came on? I would highly doubt that. What's next, he never heard Rockafeller Skank?

He's become a (curmudgeon) character of himself, but this was good:

The blogs of the world and Rolling Stone/Spin have met half way; so in effect, they already are.

henry is kind of a tool but this is hilarious because it was said to rolling stone. it wasn't a comment about rolling stone to a friend, it was a comment about rolling stone to rolling stone. A+

Hey dumbass - so now talking about something for years equates to understanding? You need to put down the pipe, turn off the porno and go interact in the real world in 2014, that way you don't hold onto that Stupido O' Da Year award next year.

Hey, guy who is saying he doesn't Coltrane; I bet HR is at lease 20 percent more intelligent than you, and four thousand times more successful. Let me know when you've been published, played in front of thousands of people for over 3 decades, host a radio show, host a television show, stay in incredible shape, act in movies (that granted, mostly suck), and dopes actually pay to hear you to talk.

Hey angry guy, you sound really into Rollins. Maybe you could try to be his "roommate" he'd probably really like that.

Posted by Anonymous | December 23, 2013 11:14 PM

@1:38 So what equates "understanding" Coltrane then? The approval of your faggy ass?

Congratulations on winning the "Baby pee pee O'the year" award.

I'd love to know what you look like. I could imagine you are a pathetic dissapointment of a human.

You can bet your spindly skeletal arms that I'm far more intelligent than you, lady.

Posted by Anonymous | December 24, 2013 5:00 AM

Hey assholes...quit blaspheming with Coltrane's name. His art transcends anything that has ever appeared in this shitty website. The names "Henry Rollins" & "Daft Punk" should never even appear in a sentence including the name "John Coltrane" unless that sentence is: 'Please turn off that no-talent Henry Rollins and that horribly over-rated Daft Punk Eurocrap and put some John Coltrane on, please!'

Gentlemen, GENTLEMEN ... we all need to just CHILLAX a bit here ... all this talk of death and such is not in keeping with the holiday spirit ...

I think that we can all agree that Rolling Stone sucks moose balls, that Henry Rollins is a self important blowhard, and that Daft Punk are not good music.

And none of you know shit about Coltrane (including Rollins).

OK, back to Chinese food and bad movies.
