On Friday, Paris was rocked by a series of terror attacks that left over 120 people dead.

The band is a Universal artist, and the 34-year-old served as an international producer manager for Mercury Records. UMG CEO Lucian Grainge issued a statement about Thomas' untimely passing, writing:

"At this point, we have confirmed that Thomas Ayad, an international product manager for Mercury Records lost his life in the attack on the theater. This is an unspeakably appalling tragedy. I cannot even begin to express the depth of my sorrow. On behalf of everyone here at UMG, we extend our most profound sympathies to his parents and all of his friends and family. Today is a dark day. We are a family. Let's support one another as we grapple with the weight of this darkness."

Over the weekend, it was also confirmed that the Eagles of Death Metal's merchandise manager, Nick Alexander, was also killed in the horrific incident.

The 36-year-old's family released a statement, saying:

"It is with huge sorrow that we can confirm that our beloved Nick lost his life at the Bataclan last night. Nick was not just our brother, son and uncle; he was everyone's best friend – generous, funny and fiercely loyal. Nick died doing the job he loved and we take great comfort in knowing how much he was cherished by his friends around the world. Thank you for your thoughts and respect for our family at this difficult time. Peace and light."

The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney had worked with Nick in the past, and remembered to Rolling Stone:

Avril Lavigne's Ex-Husband Deryck Whibley Just Got Married! See The Sweet Wedding Pic HERE!

Sum 41's Deryck Whibley got hitched!


Well, it seems not everyone is breaking up this summer!

Avril Lavigne's former husband and Sum 41 frontman, Deryck Whibley, and his fiancée, Ariana Cooper, tied the knot on Sunday!

The happy couple married in El Lay at the Hotel Bel-Air, with the bride looking stunning in a beaded, strapless white gown.

Considering the rough year Deryck's been through struggling with alcoholism and multiple organ failure, we couldn't be happier for him and Ariana!

A source even shared of their nuptials:

"It was a chill and intimate ceremony. They had a violin play at the ceremony and the music was mellow, not typical rock that Deryck's band plays, which was surprising."

Sounds so romantic! Duke Photography beautifully captured their wedding, catching the bride and groom together (above) — and even a gorgeous shot of Ariana on her big day (below)!

Well now, Avril Lavigne's ex is opening up about his illness, and reveals just how fatal his addiction truly was.

In an article for Vice's music site Noisey posted on Tuesday, the 35-year-old goes in grave detail about his struggle with the bottle.

When he was treated by doctors, the medical professionals emphasized the fact that the singer did quite the number to his body.

He said:

"The doctors said I was lucky to be alive and that there was still a chance I could die."

However, the musician — who spends most of his day in physical therapy and still has trouble walking — admits that his condition could've been worse.

"I do look back and think about how much worse it could have been… I could have had way more health problems than I had, but my liver is fine! Everything shut down before any more damage could happen. To walk out of there alive, without cirrhosis or needing transplants, you know, it could have been worse."

The punk star experienced fame at a young age, and often coped with the pressures of success with substances. He confesses
