I’m all for fucking with stupid no-talents, but what Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen claims to have done to Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst is just…homoerotic.
I don’t think it’s funny at all.
Al, who has a new book coming out he worked on with Jon Wiederhorn, told Rolling Stone about how he “embarrassed” Durst once.
“The Limp-dickster motherfucker, whatever his name is. I got him naked and in a cowboy hat [in a recording studio]! I’m showing him, ‘Look, you want my sound? This is my sound. This is what I use.’ And he wouldn’t believe it because just by hitting the magic button on the harmonizer that it wouldn’t make him sound exactly like me. He was that naïve. I’m like, ‘Well, try the cowboy hat.’ So I gave him my cowboy hat… and it still sounded like shit.”
So, wait. You got Fred Durst to disrobe in front of you, and no one else, and that’s supposed to make you look good? How?
If no evidence of this supposed shame exists, then it’s just a story about a creepy dude tricking someone into getting naked. The same shit’s probably happened to lots of chicks in the industry over the years. Only, Al does it to Fred Durst.
Cool, Al. Can’t wait to read the rest of that book.
“So I go,” Al adds, “‘Why don’t you try and get naked? That’s how I sing.’ I was just bullshitting him. So he goes out and does that, and is thoroughly embarrassed, again. And then he just left. I got paid to just humiliate him for three songs. It was awesome.”
And how were you paid? Al doesn’t really set the story up well. He doesn’t explain how this serendipitous meeting in the studio came about but, I almost don’t buy any of it happened.
Al has spent most of his days cracked out on smack. I think he’s just remembering a homoerotic dream he had as reality. I bet that happens from time to time.
