Punk rock icon Henry Rollins recently told Launch how he hooked up with SKIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor for the Rollins-produced compilation CD Rise Above: 24 Black Flag Songs To Benefit The West Memphis Three, due on October 8th through 2.13.61/Sanctuary Records.

"It was one phone call," Rollins said. "I just got his number, called Corey direct at his house and said, 'Hey, this is Henry Rollins,' and at first he thought it was a crank phone call. And he went, 'No way.' I'm like, 'Yeah, I'm a friend of Sean E. I'm sitting with him now' this guy Sean E. who helped us. I said, 'I got your number and I need your help on this record. And he flipped out. He's like, 'This is really you?' I'm like, 'Yeah man,' so I said, 'I really need those big pipes on this song,' and he just said, 'Yes,' immediately."

When asked about Taylor's familiarity with the case, Rollins added, "He heard about it, but he didn't know a lot of the specifics. And so once he did, he went from concerned to furious with what's been going on with the case."
