Al “Fucking” Jourgensen, is the undisputed king of Industrial music.  The Godfather of a genre he helped to create and mold into something millions of fans have grown to love throughout its 30+ years in development.  You can’t say his name without thinking of heavy guitar riffs, crushing drum beats and unmistakable samples.  Even his image is iconic and recognizable. You immediately think of a man in black, with top hat and flowing dreadlocks. And lets not forget his wild life and crazy antics that make Motley Crue look like school boys.

Alejandro Ramirez Casa was born in Havana Cuba in October of 1958 to Cuban - American parents.  He lived there just a short time before moving with his mother to the United States to the suburbs of Chicago.  She remarried a Norwegian stock car mechanic and driver named Jourgensen from which he would be immortalized under.  This won’t be the last time for a name change as we have learned throughout his illustrious career of bands and new personas that seem to grow from each.  He bounced back and forth between Colorado and Chicago during his early years for school before truly calling Chicago his home.
