Eagles Of Death Metal’s Drummer Deems Paris Attacks ‘Unimaginable’ | Music News
Just a few hours ago Eagles Of Death Metal touring drummer Julian Dorio wrote a touching Instagram post recalling what had happened at Paris’ Le Bataclan on November 13, where 89 people lost their lives and hundreds more were left injured in the deadliest terroristic attacks on France since World War II. Dorio recounts the attacks as “unimaginable” and like “Absolute and unnecessary evil turned our world on its head”.
Alongside a picture of himself lighting a candle at the Cathedral of Notre-Dame, he expresses how grateful he is for having found a way out of the nightmare and mourns those who, like their merch manager Nick Alexander, haven’t. He says he has a “new family abroad” now, speaking of a man named Arthur who helped the drummer and others into a taxi before himself.
Or Fabrice, a fan who lent him his phone so that he could call his wife. “To everyone who, in the face of unrelenting evil, went toe to toe using courage, compassion, and love as their weapons. You all are my heroes”, are just some of his emotional words. In the aftermath of the attacks, Eagles Of Death Metal cancelled all their remaining tour dates in support of their Zipper Down new album, but Dorio concluded his message with an encouraging note: “I’m counting down the days until I get to finish that concert. Peace & love”.
