My Morning Jacket Pay Tribute to Eagles of Death Metal, Paris Victims

Jim James and company cover "I Love You All the Time" at Beacon Theatre concert

My Morning Jacket paid tribute to Eagles of Death Metal by covering that band's "I Love You All the Time" at their Beacon Theatre concert Saturday.

In Eagles of Death Metal's first interview since the horrific Paris terror attacks, the band asked that artists in all genres cover their song "I Love You All the Time" in tribute to those killed at the Bataclan club. My Morning Jacket wrapped up their four-night stand at New York's Beacon Theatre on Saturday night, and during that show, the group performed an uplifting rendition of the Zipper Down track following a moment of silence for the Paris victims.

As James told Rolling Stone recently in a video interview, My Morning Jacket's crew members often toured with Queens of the Stone Age and Eagles of Death Metal. "Every note we play and every syllable I sing is for peace, and for understanding, and for love," James said. "The music must always go on and fear must never win. And we must stick together and talk about how we can find ways to accept each other."

In Eagles of Death Metal's Vice interview, the band encouraged artists to submit their own versions of "I Love You All the Time" to digital and streaming services, with all proceeds from each cover going to victims.
