Some truths about Saint Ronnie.


I have featured David Ford before on this site. Two of his songs are featured on the great Sun Studios web site, Go to Hell and State of the Union. I finally got his album “Songs for the Road’ [Thank you Amy] and it is awesome. His lyrics rank up there with early Dylan when he was in political comment mode. I have been playing it incessantly ever since I got it on Friday. One of my favorites is Requiem. So I went looking for some video to add here. And I found these two (and others) which are a live performance from The Shepherds Bush Empire (London) and a political statement video created by a fan.
Check them both out, but more importantly for yourself check out the album.

Requiem – Live at Shepherds Bush Empire

Per Wikapedia
Henry Rollins (born February 13, 1961 as Henry Lawrence Garfield) is an American singer and songwriter, spoken word artist, author, and actor.
Ann Hart Coulter (born December 8, 1961) is an American conservative columnist, political commentator and best-selling author, known for her biting satire.

I was never much into punk rock so was unaware of Henry Rollins until he stopped singing and started talking. You have to see his show on IFC to appreciate how much of an understanding of this world he has. If there were more people at his level the world would be a saner place. Here he sticks his tongue firmly in cheek and writes a letter to Ann Coulter. Ann Coulter has appeared too many times with Bill Maher, but I am assuming he only has her on to take the piss. Thankfully for the sake of my ears and sanity I have missed pretty much all of her appearances on Fox News (sic) and other round the clock “news” channels.

Henry Rollins voices many folks thoughts on how to handle a bitch. Nice one Henry.
