“an engrossing portrait of the power of honesty and friendship, the permanence of art, and the perseverance of the human spirit.” (Consequence of Sound)
The brutal Nov. 2015 terrorist attack in Paris claimed 130 lives around the city, 89 of them at the Bataclan theater, where the Eagles of Death Metal were performing. Spotlighting the American rock band as its members recall that tragic day, Colin Hanks (All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records) tells a powerfully emotional tale. Driven by the deep bonds band cofounders Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme feel with each other and with their devoted fans, the band returned to Paris to perform with U2 shortly after the attack, and later, to finish their own show. You couldn’t ask for a more life-affirming coda.
