Jesse Hughes: Axl Rose Insult ‘Made My Career’

Kerrang! caught up with Jesse Hughes in the heart of Soho, where the frontman discussed Eagles Of Death Metal’s latest album ‘Heart On’, ladies, his and Josh Homme’s belief that “the music is the king”, rollerblading and how Axl Rose’s comment that they were “Pigeons of Sh** Metal” inspired him to get a tattoo celebrating the quote and was “the most wonderful insult that anyone could ever ask for. That insult, in and of itself made my career.”

As for ‘Chinese Democracy’, Hughes said it was “fu**ing mediocre. Quite frankly, for the amount of time and amazing waste of money and the sort of state of the industry that he put us in, because those sorts of extravagances and those sorts of outrages really represented the artist as just a child to the world, and it’s left us the way we are. For 16 years or whatever it took, I was expecting to get a blowjob, and like a Chinese woman to marry, like a mail order bride, but it didn’t work out that way.” Hughes also wants to team up with the Guns N’ Roses singer to record a Pigeons of Sh** Metal single.

Eagles Of Death Metal Show Their Softer Side On ‘Heart On’

Jesse Hughes of Eagles of Death Metal spoke with Australia’s Time Off magazine about the band’s third studio album ‘Heart On’, which features a pair of lovesick ballads, ‘Now I’m A Fool’ and ‘How Can A Man With So Many Friends Feel So Alone’, which deviate from the rock grouip’s traditional material about girls and sex. “Those two songs, Joshua literally almost had to fight me to make me wanna put them on the album,” Hughes explained. “It caused arguments. It was hard for me, almost the hardest thing I’ve ever fu**ing done, to allow that reality to go into play in public. ‘Now I’m a Fool’ sounds like it’s a sad, heartbreak song, but it was just the way I dealt with growing up. I was really falling in love with a Hollywood personality, who’s one of my best friends. But there was this weird, critical moment of growing up where I realized her friendship was more important to me than the strange, almost absolute possibility that we would never be able to romantically involved. In order to keep her I had to let a part of her go, and it fu**ing didn’t feel good.”

EoDM’s Hughes: The White Michael Jackson Of Rock’n’Roll – Axl Rose

Jesse ‘The Devil Hughes of Eagles of Death Metal caught up with Australia’s Time Off magazine, where he was asked to list off the most surreal moments he’s experienced so far with the band. “The whole fact I’m in a rock band is pretty surreal,” Hughes admitted. “Getting out of rehab and going immediately on tour with the Foo Fighters – that was pretty surreal. Opening up for Joan Jett every night for a month – that was fu**ing surreal. Seeing the white Michael Jackson of rock’n’roll – Axl Rose – call my band the ‘Pigeons Of Sh** Metal’ from the very stage I’d just played – that was also pretty fu**ing surreal. Playing a ‘ladies-only’ gig in Soho when 400 chicks showed up – 400 beautiful babes dressed to the nines – that was surreal. We served champagne at the door, and 400 champagne glasses went in the air when we came out on stage! Of course, the other amazing thing about that night was hitting on this amazing blonde girl who was smoking while standing at the door. I’m walking back and forth looking at her, and eventually I go up to her and start making her giggle. Then I’m like ‘What’s your name baby?’, and she’s like ‘My name’s Lloyd’. That was pretty fu**ing surreal! I didn’t see the Adam’s apple!” The article at has since been removed.
