Over at Movie Mikes, Mike Gencarelli interviews Mr. Henriksen regarding his soon-to-be-released biography, Not Bad for a Human.
LH: Dylan Thomas has a great phrase he used it was “tell me about your life but be quick or I will be telling you about mine” [laughs]. I am always a believer of the campfire stories. As tribal people we used to all sit around the campfire and tell stories. Most of the stories were morality plays and they are about some aspect of our life that we are afraid of or we wanted to obtain. So its more like when are start talking about it and bringing up these things about your life, it starts escalating into a long story. It took us over a year to write it, its not like we sat around a campfire for a year [laughs] but it has the same feeling.
