Eagles of Death Metal Drummer: “I’m counting down the days until I get to finish that concert”

November 25, 2015
Eagles of Death Metal drummer Julian Dorio has posted a lengthy statement via his Instagram page regarding the attacks at Le Batalcan in Paris on the night of the band's show. 

Dorio says he is home safe and mentions several people who assisted him in escaping the venue that evening, most notably someone who put him in a cab as well as someone who lent him a phone to call his wife. 

Eagles of Death Metal's Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme will sit down with Vice this week for their first extended interview since the attacks. Watch a clip of the emotional recounting of that night here.

Read the full statement below.
November 13, 2015. I, along with my bandmates @eodmofficial, had the privilege to play to one of the most energetic crowds of our tour when, nearly half way through the show, the unimaginable occurred. Absolute and unnecessary evil turned our world on its head. I am beyond grateful that I was able to find a way out of the venue, but I am mourning those who did not, including our mate, Nick Alexander. My thoughts are with their families.
I'm home safe. And now I have a new family abroad. To Arthur, who ran for his life right beside me and selflessly put us in a taxi before himself, thank you. To Fabrice, a fan who lent me his phone later that night so I could call @emilydorio and attempt to put her at ease, thank you. 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.
Last but certainly not least, the outreach and support back home is appreciated more than you'll ever know. I will never forget it. I am forever changed but hold fast to the love around us.
I'm counting down the days until I get to finish that concert. Peace & love.
