In an upcoming interview with Vice, Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes goes into detail about his experiences in Paris during the terrorist attacks of Friday the 13th. And judging from the preview clip Vice posted onto YouTube, this week’s interview will likely be the epitome of “hard to watch.”
Each new detail we hear about the events in the Bataclan adds a new layer of horror, truly supporting the description of “hell on Earth” provided by the Paris commando team that entered the concert hall. Seeing a guy who normally oozes charisma just breaking down recalling the details of the attack, it’s tough:
“Several people hid in our dressing room and the killers were able to get in and killed every one of them, except for a kid who was hiding under my leather jacket.
“People were playing dead and they were so scared – a great reason so many were killed was because so many people wouldn’t leave their friends. So many people put themselves in front of people.”
