Clyde Lewis at the Ground Zero radio show recently caught up with MINISTRY frontman/founder Al Jourgensen to discuss his new book, Ministry: The Lost Gospels According to Al Jourgensen. Check out the interview below:
Greg Prato of RollingStone.com recently interviewed Jourgensen about his authorized biography. An excerpt follows:
The end result is a roller-coaster read. In addition to going behind the scenes for the creation of such industrial-metal classics as The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste, and Psalm 69, Jourgensen dishes dirt on many renowned names whom he's crossed paths with throughout his career, including MADONNA, COURTNEY LOVE and ROBERT PLANT. But perhaps the most colorful tale of all involves LIMP BIZKIT frontman FRED DURST.
"The Limp-dickster motherfucker, whatever his name is. I got him naked and in a cowboy hat [in a recording studio]! I'm showing him, 'Look, you want my sound? This is my sound. This is what I use.' And he wouldn't believe it because just by hitting the magic button on the harmonizer that it wouldn't make him sound exactly like me. He was that naïve. I'm like, 'Well, try the cowboy hat.' So I gave him my cowboy hat... and it still sounded like shit. So I go, 'Why don't you try and get naked? That's how I sing.' I was just bullshitting him. So he goes out and does that, and is thoroughly embarrassed, again. And then he just left. I got paid to just humiliate him for three songs. It was awesome."
