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.
