Eagles of Death Metal's Jesse Hughes, a survivor of a mass-shooting incident, called the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School "disgusting vile abusers of the dead" for participating in the March for Our Lives protest. Hughes penned his tirade in the caption of an Instagram post that mocked gun control and the efforts for stricter gun laws. "Obviously … The best thing to do to combat chronic abusers and disregarders of the law (like the law against Murder) is to ... pass another Law," Hughes wrote. "But before we pass this law we're going to denigrate the memory and...

Colin Hanks, Tom's son, has a new documentary out called "Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis." It is a moving study of Jesse Hughes, the leader of the "Eagles of Death Metal" and his band on their one-year anniversary concert in Paris after the Bataclan Islamic terror shootings. First, the band isn't particularly aptly named. It is NOT a "metal" band in the same sense as Metallica or Iron Maiden. EOD is in fact more punkish, traditional garage grunge rock and roll. I personally like some of their songs. Hughes is an emotional guy, the son of a rocker. On...

Jesse Hughes doesn't have nightmares anymore. He sleeps peacefully through the night, curled up in his bed. It's the waking hours that are hard, as memories of Paris return with a jolt from a random smell or image on the street, taking him back to that night of violence and fear. More than a year has passed since heavily armed terrorists aligned with the Islamic State walked into the Paris theater Le Bataclan and shattered the lives of those gathered for an evening of seething rock & roll from Hughes and his band, Eagles of Death Metal. The band narrowly...

Jesse Hughes – lead vocalist of the rock band Eagles of Death Metal, which was performing at the Bataclan theatre in Paris when terrorists attacked and killed 89 fans and 130 people overall last November – believes the fear of offending Muslims is making the West vulnerable. And the fear of offending Muslims, he says in an interview with Taki's Magazine, is a by-product of the culture of liberalism and political correctness being propagated by Western countries. Asked during the interview if he thought political correctness was "killing our natural instincts and making us vulnerable" in light of the terrorist...

Eagles of Death Metal frontman slams French gun control Published February 16, Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes spoke out on gun control in an emotional interview with iTELE's Laurence Ferrari. "Did your French gun control stop a single [expletive] person from dying at the Bataclan? And if anyone can answer yes, I’d like to hear it, because I don’t think so. I think the only thing that stopped it was some of the bravest men that I’ve ever seen in my life charging head-first into the face of death with their firearms." Hughes has returned to Paris,...

In an interview published February 14, Eagles of Death Metal lead singer Jesse Hughes said the November 13 Paris terror attacks have him carrying a gun everywhere he goes in the U.S. During the attacks, terrorists killed a total of 130 innocents - the great majority of which were fans gathered for an Eagles of Death Metal concert in the Bataclan. According to AFP, Hughes said he is fortunate to have emerged from the attack without "hating," and he credited fans with being his "therapy." Yet it was clear the attack changed him. Hughes said, "I don't go anywhere in...
