Holy cow, dude! I'm a bit late on this news, but Paul Barker quit Ministry! Al and Paul have been together for around 20 years, and now Paul is out. Does anybody have any info as to what went down? Why did he leave? Ministry is one of my all time favorite bands, and I loved Paul's playing. HUGE distorted tone, mesmerising (repetitive) lines; he brought alot of aggression to Ministry. He's a big reason I play bass. Man, if I had known this was going down I would have flown down to Texas and auditioned. I've got lots of fuzz boxes and distortions - I would have been great! And yet another opportunity for fame passes me by... I guess I will have to wait for the next round of Limp Bizkit auditions.
