A GoFundMe Campaign Has Been Launched for Merch Man Who Died in Paris Attacks

Nicl Alexander

Everything I’ve read about Nick Alexander says he was a terrific guy. A British citizen, Nick handled merch sales for a long list of bands: Sum 41, Panic! At the Disco, Underoath and finally, Eagles of Death Metal.

Nick was one of several music industry people killed in the attacks at the Bataclan concert hall on Friday. A friend of his has launched a GoFundMe campaign to support the memorial fund set up in Nick’s name. When I checked this morning, 1,467 people had donated a total of $57,689 USD in one day. The target was just $25,000.

All this money will go to Nick’s family. They alone will determine what will be done with it. Read more and contribute if you wish here.
