Henry Rollins

San Diego News Network: Any plans for a return to music?

Henry Rollins: No. I'm not feeling it right now. I rang that bell pretty hard over the years. And I really don't know how to ring it any better or harder. Now that I'm basically 50, in addition to having to write and record for a new tour, there'd have to be old material as part of it. While I feel it's good stuff, there's also a 'been there, done that' aspect to it all that I don't want to go running back to. When I see a band at the airport checking in for a flight, I think, 'yeah, you go ahead and have fun with that.' I already went up that trail many times and there's just not anything new about it for me. I'm not putting it down, it's just that right now, I'm trying to do new stuff.
