Eagles of Death Metal

Jesse "the Devil" Hughes On Axl Rose: "Like any other Guns N' Roses fan, I find Axl to be really insulting. He cost a lot of people their jobs, a lot of heartache and probably some mental breakdowns while he fucked around on a record [Chinese Democracy] for 16 fucking years--just because he wanted to be a dick. I firmly believe that the gods of rock 'n' roll just chose me to kick him out of the gang for gross misuse of power. Axl still has the opportunity to do something that no one expects him to do, which is something cool. I honestly think he can do it, but first, he really needs to control himself a bit, and most importantly, get a real friend."
Jesse's band Eagles of Death Metal are on tour and headlined a show at Webster Hall in NYC last night (8/6). As you can see in the pictures below, someone in the crowd brought him a Gn'R t-shirt as a gift. Another possibly-meant-to-be-funny moment came when Jesse dedicated "Kiss The Devil" to the Butthole Surfers (whose 2008 show at the same venue ended infamously). Full EODM setlist below.

Rival Schools were the opener, and it wasn't the first time Walter Schreifels shared a NYC bill with the sort-of-QOTSA off-shoot. More pictures and setlists below...

It was pretty pathetic how the meathead assholes were heckling Rival Schools, but Walters retort was great: "I bet when the EODM opened for Queens of the Stone Age they got the same treatment. This next song is for Queens...County. Where I grew up."

Awesome show.

Ok photos. Your photos are always on the dark side or black and white. Where's the flash? I like seeing bright photos. Oh well.

"Where's the flash?"

fuck flash. it's annoying and distracting for both the audience and band alike. this is why the general rule of concert photography = first 3 songs, no flash.

Gibby Haynes was at the show. Might be why the Buttholes dedication.

"Gibby Haynes was at the show. "

Jessie The Devil Who
You got Axl kicked out of the rock n roll club????
Dude, you cant be serious... That happened 2 or 3 yrs back when he fired the shi=t pidgeons of rock or what ever you call yourselves. I think that you have gotton yourself an asterisk- for being fired by a METAL GOD. Come on man, you'r band is like the band that gets lucky if you get a gig at the Anoka County Fair. No offense Jessie, but you got famous for sucking and getting fired. Nothing more should even be said about you and getting fired .. THE END already

Shorter set than the last time I saw the Eagles of Death Metal, but still a fucking great show.
