There's no complaints since I'm not a saint or in jail
But if I should fail with a piss
That has drugs on the forbidden list
Then they'll be coming to take you away

I'm at work so I had to stop reading the interview... but I was a-laughing! What he said about Madonna... hoo boy. Just like you imagine, guys.

I guess I have something to add to my reading list.

So ghost is the sight that Al fear most?

Well in his defense, the piano was only 14 years old.

I hate I had to give MTV clicks to be entertained by Al

I've only read up to Psalm 69 in The Book of AL

I remember reading an interview with Al in Thrasher magazine around 1988 or 89. He was complaining about turning 30 and how he had to quit music because he couldn't imagine still doing this at 40. Such a looooong time ago...

The piano really put the room together, man.

While reading this, I realized I've been loving the shiat out of (most of) Uncle Al's music for almost 30 years.

I'm a cheap bastard when it comes to buying stuff for myself, but I may have to get this this book.

Holy Jesus, not Voices Carry, but yeah, close enough:
``Yes, we`re rational people. But we are also really sensitive artists who have a lot of pain to express.`` Most of it is Mann`s. For the songs on Voices Carry, she excerpted chapters from her own troubled love life, dwelling on the heartaches and heartbreakers. No More Crying, for example, ``is about Al Jourgensen (keyboard player with the synth-pop band Ministry) and nothing else,`` Mann says.

From a 1985 article by David Fricke in Rolling Stone here

Give uncle Al your money if you must, but for a great read , check out Chris Connelly's "Concrete, Bulletproof, Invisible, and Fried: My life as a Revolting Cock."

Back around the "Dark Side Of The Spoon" I went to see Ministry with a few friends and it was just dismal.  Al was gaunt and exhausted, the band just seemed to go through the motions and they had none of the energy of past performances.  I had a bunch of friends whom I had to show "In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up" to when he got back home just to prove that there was once potential for the best damned show you'd ever get to.

I just stopped buying albums in the context that I couldn't support a junkie that was that bad off.  I absolutely acknowledge the potential narcotics can have with artists, but there gets to be a point where the return on it is diminished and I just couldn't be a part of it.

Now that he's clean and seems to have his act together and is willing to not use Ministry as his personal piggy bank for drug money I'd be willing to up and buy it.  I also think losing Scaccia really affected him.  I met Mike during the "Filth Pig" tour and he was one of the coolest people I have ever had the please of meeting.  We talked everything from picking technique to axes to BBQ.....just a very very cool guy who was happy to be around fans.

Getting high is fun, but Al's life just smacks of effort.

Cliff Claven Trivia: not many people know it, but armadillo's are the only other species beside humans that can contract leprosy.

Had a buddy that pissed in his keyboard during a blackout.  He cleaned it out as best he could, but whenever it started to warm up on stage, the other band members would start looking around confused,
