The world of music stands together with Paris

The world watched in horror the Paris shootouts by terrorists on 13th November. US band, Eagles of Death Metal, were about to headline a gig in the same town when the firings started. Luckily, none of the bandmates were injured but shocked beyond words. Sadly, the band did lose their merchandise manager, Nick Alexender, who died during the attack. Nick worked with a handful of other bands like Alice in Chains, Best Coast and The Black Keys.

 

Sharing for Alice in Chains and some of our own crew who personally knew and worked with Nick....

In the wake of the attacks, bands like Motorhead, Foo Fighters and Coldplay cancelled their shows. Motorhead and Foo Fighters were supposed to play a show in Paris on Sunday and Monday respectively, but cancelled their shows in the wake of the merciless killings, while Coldplay called off their live stream.

US nu-metallers, Deftones, were attending the Eagles of Death Metal show when the firing took place. Luckily, no one was injured. The band stated on their Facebook: Thank for all your inquiries on our wellbeing. Band/Crew all safe and accounted for at this time. Prayers for those affected in these tragic events.
