EAGLES OF DEATH METAL WANT TO PLAY THE BATACLAN AGAIN
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes says he wants to be the first band to play in the Bataclan nightclub when it re-opens. Hughes tells Vice, "Our friends went there to see rock and roll and died. I'm going to go back there and live." Three gunmen killed 89 people in the club during the Eagles of Death Metal show on November 13. Hughes broke down during the interview, saying he felt so guilty for leaving his bandmates on stage. Bassist Matt McJunkins says he was trapped in a room near the stage with some fans with only a champagne bottle as a weapon, and the room started flooding. Bandmate Josh Homme (HOH'-mee) was not touring with the band and was in Los Angeles at the time. Homme says they plan to finish the tour. He encourages any music act to cover their song "I Love You All The Time" and the band will donate all proceeds from the sales to the victims.

MEMORIAL TO VICTIMS OF GREAT WHITE CONCERT FIRE MAKING FUNDRAISING PROGRESS
WEST WARWICK, R.I. (AP) -- Organizers of a memorial to the 100 people killed at the Great White concert in West Warwick, Rhode Island, in 2003 have nearly completed their fundraising goal. The Station Fire Memorial Foundation reports it's raised $1.3 million of its $2 million goal. The foundation owns the property where the club burned to the ground after Great White's pyrotechnics sparked soundproofing foam. Construction on the memorial began over the summer, with plans to install monuments and a gazebo in the next year. Workers do not plan to dig on the site of the club itself for fear of disturbing human remains.
