Queens of the Stone Age fans from around the world have banded together to compile a warm and heartfelt video message to Eagles of Death Metal, offering their understanding and support after the unfortunate events that took place in Paris last month.
The clip, which was posted by fan collective The Queens of the Stone Age Family, who describe themselves as "a close-knit Facebook fan community of 4k+ members," is captioned stating "Our hope is that this message shows you just a fraction of the magnitude of what you've created, and that no amount of Godless Heathens can destroy it."
QOTSA frontman Josh Homme has responded to the clip via his band's Facebook page, stating, "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."
The dreadful terrorist attacks that took place in Paris nearly a month ago to the day (Nov. 13) were conceived by ISIS and resulted in the death of 129 innocent civilians, some of whom were attending an Eagles of Death Metal show at Le Bataclan theatre at the time. U2 were due to perform in Paris that same night, just miles away, and recently returned to the city, not even a month after the incident, to follow through with their rescheduled performances.
During U2's second rescheduled date, Eagles of Death Metal, who recently spoke out for the first time about the events that transpired in a video interview, appeared at the very end, proving a point that music will always prevail despite adversity.
