During a recent interview with Billboard, Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen revealed that him and former Ministry bassist Paul Barker are getting along again. The two reconciled after working on the “Industrial Accident: The Story of Wax Trax! Records” documentary and are even “talking about doing something in the very near future.”
Jourgensen said the following:
“We’re actually talking about doing something in the very near future. So who knows what may pop up on the next Ministry album. That’s really gonna get the old school crowd going. I just got off the phone with him, in fact.”
This news comes after Jourgensen previously said he also “kissed and made up” with his former Ministry/Revolting Cocks bandmate Chris Connelly. He told Billboard the following about burying the hatchet:
“These people I haven’t dealt with or seen in years are becoming a prevalent part of my life again.”
“…It’s like riding a bike. You know how to do it. It was something that was long overdue on both his part and my part. A lot of external factors — whether it be management, previous relationships, ex-wives, things like that — is what interfered with this partnership continuing.
I think all the barriers have just dissipated through the process of time and healing. I think there could really be something to this.”
