    Voodoo Boogie - Eagles of Death Metal: Anointed by the spirits of rock & roll

    What's not to love, one wonders. Witnessing the Eagles of Death Metal live is to encounter an embodiment of all that made early rock & roll so wonderful. There's a simple beat, you can sing along to it, and the singer is bizarrely charismatic. Jesse...
