Concert preview: Eagles of Death Metal

Joel Oliphint
Eagles of Death Metal

For childhood friends Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) and Jesse Hughes, the innuendo-drenched, tongue-in-cheek rock 'n' roll of the Eagles of Death Metal has lately been overshadowed by other events. In November, the band was performing at Le Bataclan in Paris when terrorists attacked, killing 89 people, including one of the band's crew members, and injuring many more. And recently, Hughes made comments suggesting the venue's security personnel were in on the attacks, which got Eagles of Death Metal banned from two French festivals and has squandered the outpouring of sympathy and support the band received after the tragedy.
