Visibly moved, singer Jesse Hughes took to a stage set up for a memorial ceremony Monday on a Paris plaza, saying, "I'm so happy and pleased to see all of you. The only reason we're still standing is because you all still love rock and roll."

He led the crowd in a singalong of Duran Duran's "Save a Prayer" and then sang Eagles of Death Metal song "I Love You All the Time" with some French lyrics.

After singing, he hugged band members and others, and handed out white roses to the crowd gathered for memorial events.

The group's concert at the Bataclan theatre on November 13th 2015, turned into a bloodbath that left 90 dead, while 40 others were killed at Paris cafes and the national stadium.
