We’re honored to have a life-changing video to share. I wish it were about something cool like Rate masters or inhibitive submasters used to protect certain parts of your effects live, but no…
This is Shawn London. Shawn reached out to us here to tell his story of the coward Daesh attack on Paris, he was mixing audio at FOH when these assholes came into the venue and started killing people. Once you watch this video, once you hear how Shawn was shot at several times, how he had to hear the pleas of people being purely executed, and how he got out while saving a life or two beyond his own… you may have a change in heart in the way you do things.
These assholes blocked the exits, you guys. They were executing people trying to escape. Shawn will explain to you all of this, please watch his frankly horrifying account while standing behind a Midas Verona at the Le Bataclan when the bullets started flying.
In addition to the JimOnLight.com video with Shawn, Eagles of Death Metal was interviewed by Vice News founder Shane Smith. I’ve been watching Vice since that great network started, I’ve tried to model a lot of the ballsiness of Vice’s, well, ballsiness, into the posting on JimOnLight over the years because those who work in our various lighting industries are usually pretty no-bullshit. This second video is raw too, the band is glad to be alive and pretty destroyed that this happened, as you would imagine. Hang in there though, there is real talk in this video too.
If you cannot watch this one, please don’t watch the first one. But please, put on some adult underwear and save your life. Learn from their experiences. We humans SUCK at not repeating the history we all suffer through, so let’s make this the last time I have to give an interview like this.
