Eagles of Death Metal Pledge Song To Victims Of Paris Attacks

Following the tragic events in the Bataclan Theatre in Paris almost three weeks ago, Eagles Of Death Metal have put out a special call to other musicians to cover one of their songs in aid of the victims' families.

The group have asked artists of all genres and styles to Play It Forward by covering their song I Love You All The Time and donating all the proceeds to the families of the victims, which included their merchandise manager Nick Alexander.

'We are calling upon our friends to donate their time, talent and good will in a show of solidarity to help the victims of these atrocious acts in Paris and those affected by terrorism worldwide. We are asking for you to cover our song 'I Love You All the Time.' For every cover sold, we pledge to donate 100 percent of the publishing income to The Sweet Stuff Foundation. We ask that you also donate the money generated from sales of the song to the charity. In the same spirit, we would encourage you to offer one of your songs up to be covered by another artist, and follow suit – donate the publishing monies to charity – the 'Play it Forward Initiative.' (Rolling Stone)

My Morning Jacket have already covered the song, and it looks like a lot of bands are set to join in for the cause.
