No Josh Homme, but Eagles of Death Metal still win out at Download Festival 2015

Posted: Sunday, June 14th, 2015

Eagles Of Death Metal didn’t know if they’d make it to Download today, but as the gunshot start of ‘Bad Dream Mama’ fires upwards, boy are Donington glad they did. Homme-less despite circling rumors, the band are still in full-effect. Frontman Jesse ‘Boots Electric’ Hughes, an excitable force of nature, wields his position with charming polish. Hip-shaking, knee-knocking, he strolls about the stage engaging every section of the crowd before breaking away into a frenzied dance that sees his sunglasses go flying. Eagles Of Death Metal are seriously good fun. As Jesse squares up to Darlin Dave Catching for a mid-song guitar battle, the band cement their victory.
