Music: Eagles of Death Metal

By Ryan Mclendon · February 10th, 2009 · CityBeat Recommends

Jesse Hughes is a self professed “bride of Rock & Roll,” a job I assume is similar to being Satan’s housekeeper: filthy, sweaty and invariably punctuated by the occasion stab of a rogue syringe.  

Hughes, the lead singer of the Arena Rock breakout sensation, The Eagles of Death Metal, seems to be reinventing the wheel and taking ancient Rock mythology for a spin.

The band -- boasting Josh Homme, lead singer of Queens of the Stone Age on drums -- is shattering stereotypes by remaining true to the spirit of Rock & Roll without comprising it’s integrity.

Hughes describes the credo of EoDM as “symbols of what happens when you (build a Rock band) the way it supposed to be done. It’s what happens when two best friends get together and really love each other and have the best time you could possibly ever have.”

The band plays with Living Things at the 20th Century Theater at 8 p.m. Read Ryan Mclendon's full interview with Hughes here.
