Eagles of Death Metal Fans Share a Heartfelt Message to the Band: Watch
Following the devastating terror attacks on Paris' Bataclan Theatre during an Eagles of Death Metal concert that killed 89 people last month, some of the band's biggest fans have shared a heart warming message of support.
In a two minute video, members of the 4,000-person strong The Queens of the Stone Age Family Facebook fan page from all around the world take turns on camera expressing their love and support for Eagles of Death Metal and its crew. The video was posted to Youtube on Sunday -- the attacks' one month anniversary.
Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme is also a member of Queens of the Stone Age, though he rarely performs live with the band and was not at the concert in Paris.
"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," the fans say into the camera. "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 shared the video on Instagram Monday (Dec. 14), writing, "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."
