Who are Eagles of Death Metal?

In the early reports of terrorism at the Bataclan in Paris I wondered who was playing when tragedy hit. It turns out Eagles of Death Metal were on stage and despite their name they are not a death meal band.

“In fact, the group, from Palm Desert, Calif., mixes driving blues-rock of 1970s vintage with a heavy dose of humor. For fans of Eagles of Death Metal, the band’s name is part of its irreverent charm”. -The New York Times

You can read more about the band in The New York Times. Thankfully no one in the band was hurt or killed physically but I am sure the psychological wounds will run deep.

Thinking about everyone in Paris and the world today.
