Renowned for his spoken word shows and radio presenting, the former Black Flag frontman turned solo star, actor, writer and comedian will be hitting the road once again. This time, the hardcore punk veteran will be sharing photos and stories from his times travelling the world “from Baghdad to Timbuktu”.
“For many years, I have documented my travels all over the world with a camera,” said Rollins. “Not always easy but always worth it. Many of the photos have stories behind them. Now and then, I gather several images, show them to an audience and tell those stories.”

“Donald Trump told his foaming fans at one rally after another that he would ‘repeal and replace Obamacare’,” said Rollins. “He also said that he would build a wall on America’s southern border and that Mexico would pay for it. He repeated until he was orange in the face that he would deport or arrest up to 11 million undocumented immigrants via a ‘deportation force.’ These were some of the ‘yuger’ arrows in his campaign quiver.
“Only days after winning the election, ‘repeal and replace’ was repealed and replaced by an openness to ‘amend’ the Affordable Care Act. The wall was walked back to fence and 11 million became 3 million.”
He added: “Word to Trump supporters: Your hero went from grabbing pussies to being one. Oh, the butthurt.”
