Ministry’s Al Jourgensen recalls chasing Metallica with veggies and more

Posted by on October 6, 2017

For those who are wiped out from yet another long week, you should head over to Metal Hammer to find some laughable material. Ministry vocalist Al Jourgensen aka “Uncle Al,” doesn’t care about holding back from the media or anyone who stands in his way. Therefore, he revealed detail stories such as experimenting with hard drugs, his first overdose, to how he shat his pants after the first time meeting William S. Burroughs.

One of the frontman’s recollections involved the abuse NIN’s Trent Reznor experienced when he was Ministry’s roadie:

“We started out with throwing fire crackers in his bunk on the tourbus. He was kind of grumpy about it, but he didn’t freak out. Then I threw an M-80 [firework] in there and he went flying out of there half on fire. Later I roofied him when we were in the studio and shaved his head while he was passed out. I was actually gonna shave his eyebrows off as well, but he came to after I had only finished one eyebrow. He was kinda mad about that but I have nothing but good things to say about Trent.”

For those who enjoy the paranormal activity, the frontman recalled the first time he encountered the “Grays” (Aliens) when he was five-years-old:

“It was the day before Xmas and I thought they were the three wise men. They did tests on me – no anal probing or anything. These guys aren’t assholes, they just wanted to get some information. I have seen them many times since and now I know who they are and I’m not scared of them. It’s like going to the Department Of Motor Vehicles and having to deal with those people. It’s not something you want to do, but you’re pretty happy when you come out of there with a brand new licence.”

Later, he mentioned the time when he caught Metallica hanging out in his dressing room uninvited and drinking his beer:

“They were drinking my beer and told me to fuck off, so I dropped my trousers, shoved the vegetables from the deli tray up my ass and chased them around trying to rub my ass carrots on them. They freaked out and left. When Ministry was on Lollapalooza, Ice Cube started drinking my fuckin’ beer before we got offstage and then bitched about the kind of beer we had. So I stripped naked and started rubbing my cock on him, which he didn’t like. I thought his bodyguard was gonna beat my ass, but he was laughing so hard. It was the funniest thing he had ever seen.”

The memory trips from the frontman continues including how happy he was for humiliating Fred Durst. You can read the full piece here.
