Eagles of Death Metal Singer Screamed for Everyone to Run When the Shooting Began

I’ll just quote the Daily Mail:

A British couple have revealed how the lead singer of Eagles of Death Metal ran past them urging them to flee for their lives from the Bataclan theatre, shortly after they had captured on camera the exact moment the band realised the ISIS attack was happening.

Husband and wife Maria and Patrick Moore, from Southampton, were told to ‘run, baby, run’ by rocker Jesse Hughes as they bravely searched for friend Brian Sanders, who was being crushed in a stampede caused by the chaos at the Paris concert hall.

The veteran rock fans found Mr Sanders in a crowded doorway as gunfire tore through the venue, with 89 people killed in the carnage.

Now safely back home, Mrs Moore, 50, said: ‘Brian was being trodden on so we went back to the doorway and yanked him up.

‘We could hear the gunfire getting closer and closer and we ran up the street.

‘The lead singer ran past us with his girlfriend saying ‘Run baby run!’

‘There was the crackle of gunshots and people stumbling on the steps, I can’t remember hearing anyone screaming.
