Ministry - Al Jourgensen Going To Rehab

Industrial metallers Ministry have confirmed that Al Jourgensen will check into a rehabilitation facility on February 3rd for alcohol addiction. The frontman has battled addictions to drugs, and now the goal is to have a sober life. He admitted he "needs help" beating his addiction to alcohol. The band's supposed final album From Beer To Eternity was released last year.

Ministry released this statement about it: "Dear Ministry Fans! Uncle Al has made the decision to go to rehab to address his alcohol issues. We were really trying to keep this a private family affair and not a media frenzy; however, your crazy Uncle Al posted about it yesterday on his FB page, so now it's out. Of course we always want to let Ministry fans be the first to know about things, but this got away from us. We hope that you will join us and the entire 13th Planet family in wishing Al the very best and giving him your full support in his journey towards sobriety. We are all very, very proud of him."

He probably won't be able to take those glasses with him, they're probably filled with bourbon.

Stay Pure
Stay Poor

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.
