Henry Rollins graphic account of life on the road recounts his harrowing exploits with one of the most important rock bands in modern history, Black Flag. From his acceptance into the band in 1981 to its demise in 1986, Get in the Van comprehensively documents his six year 'tour of duty' with the band. Primarily constructed from his tour journals, Rollins chronicles his years in the band with brutal candor and incisive humor -- years strewn with overzealous fans, truculent policemen, poverty and all-night drives. In the midst of the burgeoning Americanpunk rock movement of the early 80s, Black Flag clearly emerged as pioneers in both sound and ideology - maintaining a resolutely independent spirit and ethic unsurpassed by most groups. As the voice of the band, Rollins became the focus of Black Flag, and consequently, the object of much of the fans' adoration and hostility. Throughout the turmoil, Rollins kept a journal - documenting his thoughts and the day's events. By turns bluntly sobering and darkly hilarious, GET IN THE VAN is a fascinating firsthand look into the band that defined a sound and attitude of an era.
