It appears that Al Jourgensen isn’t a fan of Limp Bizkit singer Fred Durst .  The Ministry frontman says that he once played a nasty trick on Durst when he asked Jourgensen for advice on how he could improve his singing.

"I got him naked and in a cowboy hat [in a recording studio]!,” Jourgensen tells Rolling Stone .  After explaining to Durst that wearing a cowboy hat might improve his performance, Jourgensen recommended that Durst get naked, claiming that it was his secret to making great music.

“I was just bullsh**ting him,” he notes.  “So he goes out and [sings naked], and is thoroughly embarrassed…and then he just left.  I got paid to just humiliate him for three songs.  It was awesome."  The story is included in Jourgensen’s new autobiography, Ministry: The Lost Gospels According to Al Jourgensen , which hits stores this week.

In other Ministry news, the band will release its final studio album, From Beer to Eternity , on September 6.
