The authorized biography of Ministry mastermind Al Jourgensen was released on July 9 and the book features perhaps the most insane rockstar stories ever compiled.

Ministry mastermind Al Jourgensen is a true conversationalist. We always love speaking with him, and the other day, we caught up with Jourgensen on the phone for about half an hour.

Ministry have just announced the release of their 13th studio album, 'From Beer to Eternity.'
