Eagles of Death Metal singer: A child survived by hiding under my jacket.

The California rock band that was playing in Paris on the night of the Nov. 13 attacks survived the massacre at their concert, but others died seeking shelter in a dressing room, the group’s lead singer said in an interview with international news channel Vice. A young concertgoer’s life was spared in the Bataclan massacre thanks to Jesse Hughes’ leather jacket, the Eagles of Death Metal lead singer revealed in his first interview since the shooting that left at least 89 dead.

The American rock band were about an hour into their sold-out concert when gunfire soared over the music — as three terrorists transformed a fun night of music into a nightmarish scene of carnage. “The killers were able to get in ​and ​kill every one of them except for a kid who was hiding under my leather jacket,” Hughes, the band’s frontman, told Vice. Hughes and ​the band’s ​drummer​ and co-founder​, Josh Homme, ​who also fronts Queens of the Stone Age, ​escaped from the bloodbath unharmed — but lost many fans and at least four employees. Their merchandise manager, Nick Alexander, as well​​ as three people from their record label — Thomas Ayad, Marie Mosser and Manu Perez — were all slaughtered in the concert hall. In it, three EODM musicians can be seen on stage in the middle of an instrumental performance as gunfire erupts, prompting the drummer to duck for cover while one guitarist flees the stage and another stands frozen.
