EAGLES LAND IN PARIS

Two members of Eagles of Death Metal—singer Jesse Hughes and guitarist Dave Catching—appeared at a surprise gig in Paris on 11/13 to honor the lives lost during the Bataclan terror attack, which occurred two years prior.

At the memorial ceremony, which was organized by survivors and took place outside the venue, the pair performed "I Love You All the Time," which has served as a uniting anthem since the horrific act, and their cover of Duran Duran's "Save a Prayer"—the last song they played before the shooting began. That said, Duran Duran expressed their support for the band in an Instagram post published on the same day.

The event was a big deal for President Macron (pictured with Hughes below) and other dignitaries, as well as everyone affected by the tragedy.

“I’m so happy and pleased to see all of you,” announced Hughes, who passed out white roses. “The only reason we’re still standing is because you all still love rock and roll.”

“It is difficult to not to remember the people who were taken from us like our friend Nick Alexander and so many others," he added later. "We watched people give their lives for their friends and we were able to bear witness to that, and now we have a burden of responsibility to make certain that everyone knows that kind of love exists in this world.”
