"I think it's time," Uncle Al says "...and I'll be leaving on the top of my game instead of hanging on too long and doing crappy Aerosmith and Rolling Stones albums 30 years later."
I'm disappointed but can understand why he's doing it. There's something grotesque about watching an ancient Keith Richards rattle his bones around on stage. Even Madonna, who can still see the full shape of her prime in the rear view almost induces vomit when she gyrates around the stage in her leotards.
Al should be a beacon of sensibility for all rockers past the age of 50.
Jourgensen says that the next and final album will also be another assault on the White House. "It's a trilogy," Jourgensen says. "The next one's going to be called 'The Last Sucker,' and it's also about this corrupt administration. So we'll do that one, and then me and George Bush go riding off hand-in-hand, into the sunset."
I'm not entirely pleased with this little snippet. Who needs another obviously political album against the cause of the moment. That's some pretty boring material there, Al. As long as it has thunderous guitars and a lot of screaming I'll probably buy it anyway.
So long Ministry. It was nice knowing ya.
