Eagles Of Death Metal Thank Play It Forward Contributors

(Radio.com) Following the Paris attacks on Le Bataclan, Duran Duran were the first band to reach out to Eagles of Death Metal in a show of musical solidarity. Simon LeBon tweeted that Duran Duran would donate their share of royalties from EODM's cover of "Save a Prayer."

Following that move, EODM asked other artists to "play it forward" by covering their song "I Love You All The Time" from Zipper Down. For every cover that the band sold, they pledged 100% to Joshua Homme's organization, The Sweet Stuff Foundation, which aims to help musicians in need as well as provide musical education and gear for next generation musicians.

Thus far, the response has been overwhelming, and EODM thanked all participants, including Florence + the Machine (featuring The Maccabees), Kings of Leon, Ed Harcourt, Imagine Dragons, Savages, Jimmy Eat World, Alain Johannes, Mini Mansions, The New Pacifics, rooms, Sinner Sinners and Dean Ween Group.

Homme said of the response, "We are proud to be a little part of such a big group of talent and good will. We can't thank these artists enough for their donations of talent, love, time, and compassion." Read more including details about a special Pearl Jam related release here.
