MUST WATCH: The Eagles of Death Metal Talk About Bataclan

It’s been almost two weeks since the terror of the attacks on innocent people in Paris by ISIL-inspired psychopaths. Most of the 130 dead were at the Eagles of Death Metal show at the Bataclan theatre. Now frontman Jesse Hughes and other members of the band are ready to talk about what he saw and the effect that everything had on him and his bandmates.

Here’s one quote: “I want to be the first band to play in the Bataclan when it opens up because I was there when it went silent for a minute.”

And another: “The reason so many people died is that so many people wouldn’t leave their friends.”

Here’s the entire 26-minute interview from Vice. (Via Mashable)
