Eagles of Death Metal/Paris connection

It’s been widely reported, and I haven’t felt like I could do justice to my reporting since I didn’t pay attention to “American band playing during attacks in Paris” headlines until just a few days ago, but this picture, an adaptation of their album cover for Peace Love Death Metal, is what won me over toward putting something on my site.

Here’s an article where members of the band open up about their recollections of that horrific evening.

Brief explanation of who the band are:  Eagles of Death Metal are a side-project for Josh Homme (rhymes with mommy) of Queens of the Stone Age fame.  Lead singer for the band is Jesse Hughes, Homme’s childhood friend.  They are the only permanent members of the band.  They are not a death metal band, but got their names from a description of their heavy nature being “like the Eagles of death metal”.
