I also feel bad for the guy in the suspenders cuz you can tell he is dealing with PTSD, probably saw some people get shot up/dead bodies..not everyone
can handle it and rightfully so.
The guy in the suspenders is Jesse Hughes, the band’s frontman. I met him in an elevator once – he started up a totally random hilarious
conversation with me and my friend about Billy Blanks and Tae Bo. My friend didn’t know he was, so after we got out I told her, and she became so
impressed that some rock star would just reach out to complete strangers like us and brighten up what would have otherwise been 30 seconds of mundane
filler in everyday life.
That’s the type of guy he seems to be – down to Earth, not very serious, and infectiously spreads that kind of fun-loving vibe to others, be it
through his music or talking to strangers in an elevator.
It’s crushing to see him so broken in this interview, but obviously what else could we expect after something so life-changing and tragic. This is a
really powerful video. I’m glad to see them with the resolve to keep going and want to play Paris again, because as they put it “rock and roll
lets us live”.
All the people who died in Paris that night were doing just that – out enjoying life on a Friday night. It’s awful this was taken away from them
by a bunch of joyless, soulless pieces of # who’ve probably never experienced such a feeling in their lives, so consumed by hatred and ideology I
bet they wouldn’t even understand what it means to share a moment of levity with strangers in an elevator.
But that’s the sort of thing we should all never lose sight of. Terrorism is out to pollute people with fear and hatred. Instead of letting it
consume us too while we lament over how to protect ourselves, we should just concentrate on being more kind, fun and friendly with each other. Keep on
