The Bataclan music hall was one of several entertainment sites around Paris targeted by gunmen and bombers who killed scores of people in what President Francois Hollande described as an unprecedented terrorist attack.

Early indications were that members of the band, which also goes by the acronym EODM, were all safe. The band was formed in the late 1990s by lifelong friends Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme, the group's only two permanent members.

Hughes' mother, Jo Ellen Hughes, said outside her home in Palm Desert, California, 125 miles east of Los Angeles, that she had spoken to her son by telephone after the attack and that he was unhurt but 'very upset and shaken'.

"From my understanding, I think the whole band's been accounted for," she said, adding that she was not sure about the whereabouts or well-being of the rest of the entourage because the band and crew became separated in the pandemonium.

Hughes's mother also said she understood the band had just taken the stage when the attack began, but she had no other details.
