Henry Rollins Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Henry Rollins is an acclaimed musician, actor, writer, radio host and an activist. He is mostly known as the member of such bands as State of Alert, Black Flag and Rollins Band. What is more, Henry had a role in “Sons of Anarchy” and has also acted in other shows and movies. Another activity which added a lot to Henry’s net worth is him being a host of radio shows and also television shows such as “Jackass”, “The Henry Rollins Show” and others. So how rich is Henry Rollins? It has been estimated that Rollins’ net worth is $12 million. Recently Henry has hosted radio shows and organized speaking tours so there is a chance that this number will change in the future.

Henry Rollins Net Worth $12 Million

Henry Lawrence Garfield, better known as Henry Rollins, was born in 1961, in Washington, D.C. When Henry was just a small boy his parents divorced so he had to live with his mother. Not having both parents might have affected Henry, and this might be one of the reasons why Rollins later suffered from depression. Another problem that he had while being a kid was hyperactivity, but Henry has been able to overcome these problems and achieve what he has now. When Henry finished high school he started studying at the American University but did not finish it and later went to work in many different places. Soon though, Henry became interested in music and started to work as a roadie for different bands.

In 1980 Rollins became a part of the band, called “State of Alert”. This made Henry Rollins’ net worth grow. Unfortunately, “State of Alert” disbanded. Despite this fact, Henry soon became one of the members of the band “Black Flag”. He gained more experience in the music industry and became more popular. Henry even gained acclaim from critics, but again the group disbanded. Then Henry decided to try to release several solo records, and later formed a new group called “Rollins Band”. The band has released 9 studio albums; some of them include “Do It”, “Hard Volume”, “Get Some Go Again”, “Nice” and many others. The success of these albums has had a huge impact on the growth of Henry Rollins’ net worth.

In addition to this, Henry has writen several books. For example, “Black Coffee Blues”, “See a Grown Man Cry”, “Smile, You’re Travelling” and others. He has also appeared in many movies such as “Bad Boys II”, “Wrong Turn 2: Death End”, “The Devil’s Tomb”, “The Alibi” and many others. The roles in these movies also added to Rollins’ net worth.

Lastly, it can be said that Henry is a very active and talented person. Almost everything that he does becomes successful and makes Henry Rollins’ net worth higher. As previously said, Henry is still continuing working and there is a high chance that his net worth will become even higher in the future. What is more, it is a good thing that his fans are still able to enjoy his talent and take some advice from him.

#Fact
1 Departing for Afghanistan, for his fourth USO Tour this year. [December 2004]
2 Hosting "Henry's Film Corner" - a monthly film review/interview show on Independent Film Channel. [December 2004]
3 On Saturday, December 4, at midnight, Henry's Film Corner, his new monthly film show will begin on the IFC Channel. [December 2004]
4 Hosts a weekly radio show, "Harmony in My Head," on Indie 103.1 FM in Los Angeles, CA. [May 2004]
5 Hosting the construction/competition game show "Full Metal Challenge" on The Learning Channel. [October 2002]
6 Made a cameo in the video game Def Jam Fight for NY (2004) as the owner of the gym and the guy you go to for new moves.
7 In 2010, he traveled to such places as Senegal, Mali, Ireland, China, North Korea, Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, Vietnam, the United Arab Emirates, Uganda, and South Sudan.
8 Collaborated with William Shatner on a song on Shatner's album "Has Been". The song was entitled "I Can't Get Behind That".
9 He took the stage name of Rollins shortly after joining Black Flag. The name came from notes exchanged between friend Ian MacKaye and himself when they were teenagers. The notes typically contained fake threats that were signed by a mystery character named "Rollins".
10 Won a Grammy in 1994 for Best Spoken Word Album for "Get in the Van: On the Road with Black Flag", the same year he was nominated for Best Heavy Metal Performance for "Liar"
11 Despises the music of Nine Inch Nails and Moby (and most electronics-based musical artists in general).
12 Has a multi-tiered career: sings, acts, writes books and poetry, does spoken word performances, runs his own record label and book publishing company, and now also TV film critic, and radio DJ.
13 Among the musical artists he admires least: Depeche Mode, Bruce Springsteen and U2 (which he says has the worst rhythm section he's ever heard).
14 Lives off Hollywood Blvd in the Hollywood foothills, California.
15 In December of 1991, in their shared house in Venice, California, his best friend Joe Cole (son of actor Dennis Cole) was shot and killed during a robbery attempt. The crime remains unsolved and was featured on Unsolved Mysteries (1987).
16 Started working out as an underclassman at the Bullis School at the suggestion of a history teacher and Vietnam veteran. He got his first workout equipment from Sears and was told to not look in the mirror. When he finally did several months later, "it was a huge revelation" as he'd been a scrawny youth that was frequently picked on and didn't stand up for himself. In tenth grade, he defended himself and ultimately hospitalized a senior. Though he still feels other students regarded him as a freak, he wasn't teased as much.
17 Sang in early hardcore punk band Black Flag.
18 Founder of 2.13.61, a record label and publishing company. The digits of the company's name are Henry's date of birth (February 13, 1961).
19 Founded the record labels InfiniteZero, 213CD, and more recently, the "District Line" label, which will focus on rare and unreleased music from Washington DC area artists.

#Quote
1 (2008, on marriage) I am better off on my own. I don't hate people but prefer my own company. People are complicated, relationships tend to normalize things and to me, obscure aspects of life that I want to experience. The last thing I want is to come off the road to a woman. Nothing against women, I just don't want to answer questions, check in, explain myself, etc. Also, I don't want to have that safety net of unconditional love or whatever. I would rather load my pack, dress for cold weather and hit the trail while it's still dark out.
2 (1998) I don't want a wife and I don't want kids. I'm 36 and if I met a woman of my own age and married her, I'd also be marrying her former life, her past. It might be OK for some people - I don't want to judge it or anything - but it's not for me. It would destroy my creativity.
3 (2004) I have a low threshold for boredom. I'd rather do stuff than talk about doing stuff. The idea is to work vigorously. All my heroes work vigorously: Miles Davis, Duke Ellington. I'd rather do that than take three months off to find myself on some beach.
4 (2004, on his level of fame) I don't need security to go to the grocery store. People recognize me all the time at the grocery store or at the hardware store. Do I get talked to a lot? Yes. Do I get recognized? Within one traffic light. The car next to me. Within a minute of walking to any hotel, airport, restaurant, store...within a minute. I see my name being lip-synced by someone pointing at me. It comes with. But do I have to run from paparazzi? No. They want the young, handsome guy with the hot chick. Not the short graying man who walks alone. I'm so not interesting to these people. I can't tell you how little they give a fuck, which is fine. It allows me to do what I need to do.
5 (2008, on travel) I'd gladly do 200 shows a year. I fare better on the road than at home. I train better. I eat better. I think better. [I suffer] less depression. After five or six days home I itch to get back into the world." He pats his laptop and his travel bag: "This is my office and home - I've been living like this since 1981.
6 (1998) I just get things done instead of talking about getting them done. I don't go out and party. I don't smoke, drink or do drugs and I'm not married, that leaves a lot of time for my work.
7 (2011, on what got him into in-depth world travel) In rock 'n' roll and the other touring I do, I get to see a fair chunk of the world. Europe, a lot. Which is nice. But it's not the world. It's just Europe. Australia, New Zealand. Sometimes Japan. And the odd date in Singapore. We went to Moscow. We went to Warsaw. Pretty cool. But it's not going to get you to Egypt or Djibuti, or the Middle East. So at one point in the '90s, I was talking to a journalist who said, "You do a lot of travel." I said, "Yeah, but I've never been to Africa." And it stuck with me. Why not? I'm curious. I'd like to see the Sphinx. I'd like to meet a Masai tribesman. What's my excuse? So I decided, I'm going to go to Kenya, Madagascar and South Africa. It was 1997, I believe. And it was mind-blowing to see such a different part of the world. Kenya was the first place I landed. The first thing you see when you come out of the cloud cover is this herd of zebra moving out of your way. You land in a small plane and you disturb the zebra. So they all run. My mind was completely blown. It was basically weeks of that. Like, look out for the elephant! Don't let the monkeys get into your tent! Okay, duly noted. It was great to have my mind expanded like that. Then I said I'd better go to Africa every year, and I've pulled it off almost every year. One thing led to another and I was going to the Middle East, Southeast Asia. A buddy of mine, a diplomat, said, "We're living in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and we can get you a diplomatic visa. Want to come visit?" Uh, yeah! It's hard to get into that country. I got a visa for Iran; that took couple of years. Finally got a visa for North Korea. I went there about a year ago.
8 (2011, on his travel style) I just travel the world with my backpack and my cameras and a bunch of Clif bars. I hit the streets every day with no real plan besides walking and seeing what happens or taking a taxi across town and finding my way back. Or I look out the top of the hotel and see an area and say, okay, I'm going there today-that slum, that village. I go through souks and bazaars and stores. People come up and ask, "My friend, what are you doing here?" My icebreaker is, "I'm here to meet you." Which is true, and also sometimes cracks them up. They say, "Me?" I say, "Oh yeah, man, I'm Henry, what's happening?" I've had that conversation in Islamabad, Beirut, Tehran, and I'm still here. I think when you show genuine curiosity, and when you're confident enough to walk alone with a smile on your face, people think, he really wants to be here. And you ask a question, and all of a sudden you're getting invited in for tea and food. If you're polite and show due respect, I think people get it. It's almost canine and instinctive, and when you're being disingenuous, they get that, too. But when you're being genuinely kind, it's so disarming.
9 (2011) I beg young people to travel. If you don't have a passport, get one. Take a summer, get a backpack and go to Delhi, go to Saigon, go to Bangkok, go to Kenya. Have your mind blown. Eat interesting food. Dig some interesting people. Have an adventure. Be careful. Come back and you're going to see your country differently, you're going to see your president differently, no matter who it is. Music, culture, food, water. Your showers will become shorter. You're going to get a sense of what globalization looks like. It's not what Tom Friedman writes about; I'm sorry. You're going to see that global climate change is very real. And that for some people, their day consists of walking 12 miles for four buckets of water. And so there are lessons that you can't get out of a book that are waiting for you at the other end of that flight. A lot of people-Americans and Europeans-come back and go, Ohhhhh. And the light bulb goes on.
10 (2011) You'll never convince me that bombing Iran is a good idea. I had too much of a good time in Iran. Just unforced hospitality unleashed upon me everywhere I went. Literally, just walking around by myself. The only thing that sucked was the freezing weather. Otherwise, no one would let me spend money. Every dinner...Dinner parties every night in different homes, interesting discussions and debates until 2 in the morning, some of the best food I've ever had, the best ice cream I've ever had. And walking the streets by day and getting into interesting conversations.
11 [1995] The last time I got into a fight was two years ago in Germany. I knocked a guy's tooth out, broke his nose, put eight stitches in his eye and got arrested by the German cops. I just meant to back him up, but I busted him up.
12 [1995, on meeting Steven Seagal] The guy was beyond belief. I think I would rather drink latex paint than be in a movie with him. However, he does know his shit about aikido: I would not want to mess with him. He stalled, asking me what I was doing in his office, why I wanted to meet with him. And that was really strange because I didn't even want to be there. He called me. I only went because my agent asked me to go. Then Seagal wanted to know how much experience I had with guns. When I told him I had none, he looked at me as if I had better move out of town, That's when I walked out of there and saw all these people in his front office, nervously clutching scripts. Apparently, he was casting On Deadly Ground (1994). That clown is a guy who definitely lives in his fucking scene. And there is danger there.
13 [1995] I don't have anything else but work. I have no hobbies, no wife, no children, no drug habit to maintain. Nothing is in my way. I'm very simple. I'm used to living in a backpack for months out of the year.
14 [2010, on landing his presenter job with National Geographic] What I'm hoping for is that National Geographic keeps me oh so busy. This is a job that I've wanted since I was about 8. You know, I grew up near the National Geographic building [in Washington, DC], I've had the magazine all my life. It's National Geographic that first let me see the Sphinx and the Pyramids, and I always said, "I'm going to see those," because I was inspired by them. And since then, I've been to the Pyramids a few times. And so to be able to be a presenter, a host on the National Geographic Channel, I can't tell you what a big deal it is for me. Especially coming from music, where . . . you know, I could go out and sing those old songs and look like a damned fool, as so many of my peers sometimes do. They fall in love with their past, and they go up there, gray-haired, and play. And . . . I don't want to. I'm not putting down the people that do. I just want to do something else. And if you asked me what I'd rather do instead of going out and playing the same old songs, well, I'd like to work at a place like National Geographic. And it happened. Well, at least for now. You never know. But as it is now, I'm kind of in that "no way" phase of everything, 'cause I really want to be there. They're an amazing group of people, and documentary stuff is really what I'd like to . . . I'd be happy just doing that for the rest of my life.
15 I got no problem with Britney Spears or *NSYNC, really, just because that kind of stuff has always been around and they're not calling it anything more than just some fun. That's why I didn't mind Spice Girls, they're just fun. But Bono thinks he's changing the world with his music.
16 Good question about the anger. It is perhaps something else; an awareness, a catalyst. All I know is, when everything seems to be going well, it feels like a scam!
17 Nothing brings people together more than a mutual hatred.
18 Want a good body? Work at it. Want to be a success? Work at it. Want to be truly exceptional? Be a touch insane . . . You need a little bit of insanity to do great things.
19 If you hate your parents, the man, or the establishment, don't show them up by getting wasted and wrapping your car around a tree. If you really want to rebel against your parents: outearn them, outlive them, and know more than they do.
20 I don't want to pass through life like a smooth plane ride.
21 When you start to doubt yourself the real world will eat you alive.
22 The ones who don't do anything are always the ones who try to pull you down.
23 Whenever I get dumped [by a girlfriend]), I nail the door shut so that no one can come inside, get a towel and clip it around my neck so it's like a Superman cape, take off my shoes so I can slide across the room, and . . . get a fake mic, like a celery stick or a pen, and I play any record that features the vocalist Ronnie James Dio. And you can just pretend you're Dio, because on every album he does, he has minimum one, usually three, *EVIL WOMAN LOOK OUT!*- songs.
24 You can get away with a lot of shit if it looks like it's all you know how to do.
