Eagles Of Death Metal's Jesse Hughes To Release Solo Album
0
Eagles Of Death Metal singer/guitarist Jesse Hughes is working on a solo album. The impressively moustachioed frontman told BBC 6music that the album, his first as a solo artist, would be named "Boots Electric Fabulous Weapon". He has been recently going under the nickname "Boots Electric" after formerly being referred to as "The Devil". Hughes said he had some rather ambitious production wishes for the album. "I'm trying to work with Dr. Dre and my dream job of all time would be to work with [Outkast's] Andre 3000," he said. "But I'll probably end up working with someone at K Mart." Eagles Of Death Metal played at the Reading And Leeds Festivals last weekend (August 28-30). Watch a video interview with Hughes backstage at the Leeds bash here. Thanks for the report to Nme.com.

    But Dr. Dre is a very skilled producer, Timbaland isn't even good at his own genre, much less a hard rock album.

    He's had his own stuff on myspace for god knows how long now. I'm sure he'll get enough material for his own album.

    nah, i think that this might be ok if he were to actually work with dre. although dr dre does mainly do rap stuff, he does a good job in nearly anything. hopefully this actually comes out, i quite like EODM and would love to hear what this would sound like

    He's been talkin about it for nearly 5 years.
