It was the Eagles of Death Metal concert in Paris that turned into a bloodbath when gunmen opened fire on the audience. The band's merchandise manager and three of its parent record label executives were among those killed. The band's now back in California where a statement posted on social media says it's suspended all future shows. The group was on a 32-city European tour when Friday's massacre brought it to a horrific end. It has just two permanent members - co-founders Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme (pron HOMMY), who wasn't in Paris on the night of the attack. Other names among its rotating roster of members include actor-musician Jack Black and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl. It's not clear when the band arrived back in the U.S. Representatives from Universal Music and the band's management weren't immediately available for comment.
