Tenacious D Auctioning 1-of-a-Kind Memorabilia to Benefit Paris Attack Victims

Jack Black’s band/comedy duo Tenacious D stepped up this week to help victims of last month’s terror attacks in Paris. The group is auctioning off a variety of memorabilia and props through Charity Buzz, with proceeds helping victims of the attack through Josh Homme’s Sweet Stuff Foundation. Up for grabs are one-of-a-kind items like the Evil Alien Squid and 15 foot “Fenix” stage props from their Rise of the Fenix tour and outfits they wore in videos or on stage. Homme’s charity usually funds music programs and provides support for musicians dealing with health issues, but has redirected its focus since the November attack that killed 89 people at the Bataclan. Homme’s band, Eagles of Death Metal were performing when the terrorists stormed in with assault rifles, and a crew member was among those killed. While Homme founded the group and plays drums on their recorded music, he does not tour with the band and was not in Paris at the time. Separately, Eagles of Death Metal have launched a Play It Forward campaign and is asking notable artists to cover their song, “I Love You All the Time”, with the intention of donating proceeds to Sweet Stuff. Several renowned acts have contributed to the project including Kings of Leon, Pearl Jam, Florence and the Machine and Imagine Dragons.
