A Slut discusses trying out for Black Flag, Henry Rollins, and suicide (VICE. Aug 2014).


The internet is still mad at Henry Rollins. Dee Slut, however, is not—even though Rollins beat Dee Slut out of a job singing for Black Flag back in 1981. Luckily Slut (a.k.a. Dave Turgeon) got the booby prize of becoming a New Orleans legend by singing for punk band the Sluts on and off for the last 35 years. In between, Slut played and toured with every notable punk band of the era, and decided that Minor Threat’s Ian MacKaye was a “dickhead.”

On the occasion of Rollins becoming a pariah—and the re-release by Jeth-Row Records of the Sluts only album on sexy pink vinyl—we spoke with Dee Slut about his Black Flag tryouts, his relationship with Rollins, and his own Rollins-esque thoughts on the many, many suicides he’s suffered through.
