After U2 visited a makeshift memorial at Le Batalcan to pay homage to the (at least) 127 people gunned down by terrorists at the venue during a Friday night concert, frontman Bono spoke to Irish DJ Dave Fanning about the Paris shootings.
"Our first thoughts at this point are with the Eagles of Death Metal fans,” Bono said, via Rolling Stone. “If you think about it, the majority of victims last night are music fans. This is the first direct hit on music that we’ve had in this so-called War on Terror, or whatever it’s called. It’s very upsetting. These are our people. This could be me at a show, you at a show, in that venue. It’s a very recognizable situation for you and for me and the cold-blooded aspect of this slaughter is deeply disturbing and that’s what I can’t get out of my head.”
