Some Eagles of Death Metal Crew Members May Still Be Unaccounted For

UPDATE: One member of the band’s crew, Nick Alexander, who was selling merchandise, has been confirmed dead

Shortly after the deadly attack that took place Friday night at the Eagles of Death Metal concert at the Bataclan in Paris, Universal Music issued a statement that all of the band members were safe and accounted for. The Associated Press also reports that a U.S. Official has stated that all band members are safe.

The latest post on the band’s Facebook page, however, reveals that they were still “trying to determine the safety and whereabouts ” of some crew. That updated was posted at 6:44 pm ET Friday night, before any statements by Universal or U.S. Officials,  however neither of those addressed crew members.

Billboard reported Friday night at 11:28 ET that two crew members are still unaccounted for.

The Eagles of Death Metal was formed by Queens of Stone Age’s Josh Homme and his best friend Jesse Hughes in Palm Desert, CA in 1998. Homme did not join the band on the European tour.

Just a few weeks ago, the band performed “Save a Prayer” with Duran Duran on the UK’s TFI Friday. Watch the performance below.
