As a member of the seminal punk band Black Flag, Henry Rollins kept detailed tour diaries that form the basis of Get in the Van . Rollins's observations range from the wry to the raucous in this blistering account of a six-year career with the band - a time marked by crazed fans, vicious cops, near-starvation, substance abuse, and mind numbing all-night drives. Rollins decided to revise this edition by adding a wealth of new photographs, a new foreword, and an afterword to include some "where-are-they-now" information on the people featured in the book. This new edition includes 40 previously unpublished black-and-white photographs from Rollins's private collection and show flyers by artist Raymond Pettibon. Called "a soul-frying experience not to be undertaken by lightweights" by Wired magazine, Get in the Van perfectly embodies what one critic called the "secular gospel" of one of punk and post-punk's most respected and controversial figures.… (més)

This book was not what I was expecting. I was expecting a tour journal that recounted the places, people and shows from Rollins' years in Black Flag. It instead is a really, really dark look in the mind of someone forever changed by the spotlight. It's clear that he was already an antisocial figure, but being the singer for Black Flag certainly took him to further violent, destructive and vicious spaces. It was all very bleak.

Really enjoyed this book. I don't think bands do this kind of touring anymore. A good read, though I recommend spreading the read out over a couple of months, as the journal entries can feel a bit repetitious. ( )

Get in the Van is a great book to get if you're interested in 80s punk, music, or cool stories in general. The book is part history by Henry Rollins and then journal entries he wrote while on tour with Black Flag.

The writing, to me, is really a candid look at an open musician who observes a lot. There are hilarious anecdotes (the Nick Cave party crash at the Australian embassy)and some really, really depressing entries. While some of the writing does come off as negative, pessimistic or nihilistic it also brings with it a certain truth and honesty. These are pure emotions and feelings by Henry Rollins. There are no apologies.

It's a must get if you're into that era of music and it's really an interesting book altogether. The audiobook, while abridged, is really a great listen as well. ( )
