Friday marks three weeks since the Paris attacks that claimed the lives of 130 people, 89 of them at an Eagles of Death Metal concert. Eagles of Death Metal gave its first interview since the tragedy last week, and on Wednesday night, band co-founder Josh Homme invited fellow charter member Jesse Hughes on his Beats 1 radio show for a second public talk.
On the 21st episode of Homme’s Alligator Hour, the pair shared several covers of Eagles of Death Metal’s “Love You All the Time” -- renditions from the Dean Ween Band, Matt Cameron and Alain Johannes. All publishing income from the covers have been donated to Homme’s Sweet Stuff Foundation, as a benefit for those affected by the attacks.
“We challenged every artist to cover ‘I Love You All the Time’ so we could donate the proceeds to our friends in Paris,” Homme explained. On Cameron’s cover he said, “He sent that version in right away and it’s a great example of taking a song and twisting it into a new position.”
