Eagles of Death Metal Respond to Touching Fan-Made Video Following Paris Concert Attack
A Queens of the Stone Age fan group comprised of more than 4,000 members created the clip, compiling footage of fans from around the world expressing their sympathies. (Eagles of Death Metal’s Josh Homme serves as the frontman for QOTSA.) They offered the following message:
In the devastating wake of the attacks on Paris on humanity and freedom, on our friends, your colleagues and our hearts worldwide, we know you must be hurting beyond comprehension for both those you loved and those who loved you. And in the spirit of our family's core values we want you to know that you're not alone -- we're so grateful for all you do, we're glad you're OK, we're so sorry for your loss, but most importantly, we love you too.
Homme has since responded via Facebook, saying he’s “proud,” “humbled” and “in awe” of the video:
I think I'm one of the first in our group to see this. I find it difficult to put into words how this video makes me feel. I'm proud to be among you, part of you, one of you. Thank you for this kind & generous gift. It means the world to me. I thank you with everything I have. I am humbled by you. I am in awe of you. What you have done, together? I will never forget this gift of kindness. Thank you.
