U2 tried to help fellow musicians in the Eagles of Death Metal fly out of Paris after their show at the Bataclan turned deadly on Nov. 13.

Speaking with CNN's Fareed Zakaria, Bono explained that he and U2 attempted to find a plane to get the band out of Paris after the massacre.

But it turned out the best way the band could be helped was "finding them phones," Bono said.
