MINISTRY is a band that just will not die. In fact, I believe that as long as there is AL JOURGENSEN, there will be MINISTRY. Despite "final tours" and the occasional "final album," MINISTRY somehow manages to rise again, morphing into slightly different incarnations with new personnel and new music. On September 6, 13th Planet Records will release the 13th studio album from MINISTRY, when FROM BEER TO ETERNITY hits retail. But a new album isn't all that the band has cooking... a new DVD and a Jourgensen biography are also on-deck. Check out the full announcement below, right here on The Rock Father...

He also covers talking his way out of speeding tickets, to avoiding arrest by the TSA, and even uncovering the solution to road rage. 

As Father's Day gets closer, many of my readers are still hunting for a perfect gift for that special Dad in their lives. As I always say - I don't ask for, nor do I require a gift, but if you must get one - don't overspend. Movies always make great gifts, and one that's been on my radar lately is THE LAST RIDE. Touted as "A Story of Hank Williams," THE LAST RIDE is a telling of the final days of Williams' life - not a true biopic, so the accuracy has come into question. But, with Henry Thomas (Elliott from E.T.) as Hank Williams, my interest is piqued. With the Blu-ray out now, the folks over at FoxConnect sent over the Top Five Most-Covered HANK WILLIAMS Songs. Curious what they are?
