Read full description of the books:
Henry Rollins’s Smile, You’re Traveling covers familiar ground. He keeps a journal about gigs, touring, loneliness, lifting weights, and getting recognized, much to his annoyance, on the street. He writes about Ian McKaye, hotel coffee, and the occasional foray home to California. If you’ve read other Rollins books, and you like his (somewhat repetitive) style, you’ll like this Smile, You’re Traveling. The material unique to Smile, You’re Traveling, while not revelatory, kept my attention. Rollins hangs out for the Black Sabbath reunion rehearsals and gigs. He travels to Madagascar and western Africa, where he lands on what sounds like a tourist-y safari experience. I would have loved to see Mr. R. in the breakfast room surrounded by retirees, harried parents, and their hungry children. The book’s best entries, however, address Rollins’s last days with the Rollins Band. Fewer fans show up for the concerts, the festivals place the band lower on the bill, and maintaining his voice is a struggle. He grapples with aging and fading popularity. I don’t want to sound like I’m underselling Mr. R.; he’s an important, consistent voice, and this is the fourth (I think?) Rollins book I’ve read. His consistency, however, probably sounds broken-recordy to his detractors. I don’t mind. It’s Rollins. He’s been holding the line since before I could drive. I admire his discipline. Smile, You’re Traveling maintains the author’s workmanlike, painfully honest standard. I promise not to bug him if I ever see him on the street.
