We wanted to take a moment to honor a few of the many, many invaluable lives that were lost in the horrifically tragic attacks in Paris.
While each of the lost lives made a deep impact, there were a few in the music industry attending the Eagles of Death Metal show whom we wanted to honor. Thomas Ayad, Nick Alexander, Guillaume B. Decherf, Marie Mosser and Manu Perez were among the music industry professionals who were victims of the attack.
Words cannot describe or console the feelings that accompany the 80 lives taken at the concert at Le Bataclan. Eighty lives innocently absorbing the beauty of music, abruptly ended by the cowardly acts of terror.
Join us in a moment of silence as we honor each of the lives that were lost this tragic weekend.
Please take the time to read MBW on their account of the unspeakable tragedy, and a letter from UMG boss Lucian Grainge.
