“I haven’t been myself since November 13”, says the singer.

Eagles Of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes recently suggested in an interview that some of the security staff due to work at the Bataclan on the night of the Paris terror attacks last year missed the show on purpose, implying some sort of conspiracy. Today, the Bataclan responded, calling Hughes’ claim “insane”. Now, in a new statement, Hughes has apologized for his initial remarks calling them “baseless” and “unfounded”.

“I humbly beg forgiveness from the people of France, the staff and security of the Bataclan, my fans, family, friends and anyone else I hurt or offended by the absurd accusations I made in my Fox Business Channel interview,” he writes, adding that he statements never reflected the opinion of anyone else in the band.

“I’ve been dealing with non-stop nightmares and struggling through therapy to make sense of this tragedy and insanity. I haven’t been myself since November 13,” he adds.
