Al Jourgensen Enters Rehab…

Al Jourgensen enters rehab…

Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen has announced via his Facebook page that he is to enter rehab on the 3rd February 2014

Jourgensen’s battles with both alcohol and narcotics are well recorded, in July 2012 we reported how he had collapsed on stage during a Paris show – though on that occasion alcohol was not thought to the reason.

Jourgensen adds:

“My sobriety will not, and I repeat, not knock off my sarcasm. If anything, it will intensify. I appreciate the support from my brother and family. I kicked dope and crack by myself, but I need help on this one, so all your thoughts and prayers are more than welcome.”

We wish Al well, and our thoughts go to his wife Angelina.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
