EODM’s Josh Homme and Jesse Hughes

 

According to the Desert Sun, the foundation created by Eagles of Death Metal co-founder Josh Homme, announced on Monday it will now be accepting donations to help the families of musicians or crew members victimized by the Paris attacks.

A few years ago, Josh Homme teamed up with members of Jimmy Eat World and Paramore to form the Sweet Stuff Foundation, in order to help the musical community and their families during periods of illness and disability. The foundation provides transportation to medical treatment, assistance with childcare and tuition, income assistance, and special treatments not covered by insurance.

Michael Homme, Josh’s father and board member and Palm Desert-based contractor, announced that the foundation now includes crew members and their families, in order to cover people like EODM’s merchandise manager Nick Alexander, who was sadly killed during the Bataclan attack. Michael Homme said it was not sure if other musicians or crew members were killed or injured in the attacks, but, if more come forward, the Sweet Stuff Foundation will cover their needs.

Josh Homme grew up in Palm Desert, with his childhood friend Jesse Hughes, Eagles of Death Metal’s frontman, and although Homme had not followed the band in Europe, everyone can imagine how deeply affected by the tragedy he must have been. For a few days, Hughes and his bandmates were stuck in a hotel in Paris guarded by the FBI, but they have reportedly returned to the United States since

Until December 31st, the Sweet Stuff Foundation will be dedicating all money received to the surviving families of the musicians and crew killed in Paris. Donations to the foundation are tax deductible and can be made through their website, thesweetstufffoundation.org, or at P.O. Box 258, Palm Desert, CA 92261.
