Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen seems like the type of dude that could fill just about any amount of time you give him with ridiculously colorful stories that are likely varying degrees of inappropriate. Jourgensen recently sat down with Metal Hammer and told a few of these stories, one of which was about the time Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor was Ministry's roadie.

Unfortunately for Reznor, this time frame involves being hit with firecrackers whilst in his bunk, one of which set him on fire. They're cool now though, so it's fine apparently.

We started out with throwing fire crackers in his bunk on the tourbus. He was kind of grumpy about it, but he didn’t freak out. Then I threw an M-80 [firework] in there and he went flying out of there half on fire. Later I roofied him when we were in the studio and shaved his head while he was passed out. I was actually gonna shave his eyebrows off as well, but he came to after I had only finished one eyebrow. He was kinda mad about that but I have nothing but good things to say about Trent.
