Opening for Axl is a promising platform for a band prominently featuring distored guitars, give or take a riot or two. But when Eagles Of Death Metal took the stage after Axl-apologist Sebastian Bach, for the first of what was to be three weeks of shows, the audience responded with, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer pop critic, “not deafening boos, but lots of grumbling and grousing and … indifference.” And as you know Axl is forever in tune with his audiences wants, needs, and desires.

At first the audience refused to welcome us to the jungle, but by the time we took our final bow, it had become paradise city. Although Axl tried to November rain on our parade, no sweet child o’ mine can derail the EODM night train. We say live and let die.
