[WikiPedia] Eagles of Death Metal is an American rock band from Palm Desert, California, formed in 1998. Founded by Jesse Hughes (vocals, guitar) and Josh Homme (drums), the band also includes a wide range of other musicians who perform both on the band's studio albums and at live shows. Hughes and Homme are the only permanent members of the band, with Homme rarely performing at live shows due to commitment to his other band, Queens of the Stone Age. The band's current touring line-up includes Hughes alongside Josh Jove (guitar), Eden Galindo (guitar), Jennie Vee (bass) and Jorma Vik (drums). Despite their name, Eagles of Death Metal are not a death metal band, and the name is intended to be humorous. In a 2003 interview, Homme described the sound of the band as a combination of "bluegrass slide guitar mixed with stripper drum beats and Canned Heat vocals." Hughes is known for his enthusiastic interaction with audiences at live performances.While the band was on stage at the Bataclan in Paris on November 13, 2015, the audience was attacked by terrorists wielding automatic rifles, grenades, and suicide vests. 89 people were murdered inside the venue, including the group's merchandise manager. Three of the band members – singer Hughes, guitarist Galindo and drummer Julian Dorio – escaped safely out of the venue via a door backstage, but guitar player Dave Catching and bass player Matt McJunkins were unable to escape. The first hid alone in a bathroom stall while the latter hid in a dressing room with several fans, some of them critically injured. They remained hidden inside the venue and were rescued after several hours by the police with the other survivors.
