    The lead singer of rock band Eagles of Death Metal has described how fans were slaughtered in the group's dressing room as they tried to hide from Islamist gunmen during the Paris terror attacks.

    Jesse Hughes, the frontman for the California-based alternative rock group, said just one person in the dressing room survived -- a fan who hid under the singer's leather jacket.

    While reporting on last week's horrific terror attacks in Paris, we realized with shock that the band playing at the Bataclan, the venue where 89 rock fans had their lives taken, was Eagles of Death Metal.

    You never expect the people you know to be caught up in such things, but Eagles are a band we've interviewed many times before and Jesse Hughes, the lead singer, hosted a video series on VICE's music channel, Noisey.

    While Jesse and the band thankfully survived, some of the people closest to them did not. They include the band's merchandise manager, Nick Alexander, as well as three colleagues from their record label, Thomas Ayad, Marie Mosser, and Manu Perez.

    This week VICE founder Shane Smith sat down with Jesse and bandmate Joshua Homme to talk about those they lost, what happened that night, and to try to figure out what it is that they—and we—can do next.

    The interview will premiere next week on VICE.com.

    Our love goes out to all those affected by the recent terrorism and violence in Paris, Beirut, Nigeria, Mali, Syria, Iraq, and far too many other places to mention.

    I will watch this. I can't imagine what he went thru. It's amazing anyone survived that.

    Me too.
    It kind of hits a little close to home for me because I drive to places like DC for rock shows in small clubs just like that. Scary shit.

    I was in NY for 9/11. Lost a good buddy in the towers. It's an unreal punch to the gut feeling when shit like this happens.

    that guy from that other band is in this band
    I didn't know that
    I thought eagles of death metal was some kinda death metal type band with all the growling and shit

    that other band that he was in I sorta liked some of the stuff I heard from them



    the older I get the more disconnected from music I become
    I think the strokes are a new band

    when you read the stories about what happened there with people shielding each other and helping each other, talking each other through it... I read the story of the girl who was playing dead in a pool of blood while it went on. It's very sad.

    It's admirable that we're able to stay strong during these attacks, and move on with our lives, but it's time to exterminate these people.

    when you read these stories about the acts of kindness going on during horrific massacres, it reminds me how much better we are than our enemy on every level

    queens of the stone age, eagles of death metal, & desert session stuff is kinda all intertwined, with other bands as well. 6 degrees of josh homme....or dave grohl come to think of it.

    Josh was a founding member but I dont think he plays with them anymore. The name was to be more of a goof than anything. Axl Rose called them the Pigeons of Shit Metal.:snicker:
