Lamb of God Frontman speaks
2012-07-18 by Calculon | 59 Comments
In an interview for a Czech tabloid outlet, Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe has stated he "did not attack anyone". In the first interview conducted since the vocalist's detainment, Randy also points out that as he does not wear glasses during performances, he cannot see a whole lot of what is going on around him. He also states his plans for if he goes back to the USA, or if he has to stay in the Czech Republic.

His next scheduled court appearance is this thursday, July 19th 2012.

"Since I don't wear my glasses while performing, I see little more than blurry outlines. In any case, I did not attack anyone. The only way I could have come into contact with anyone from the audience was if I was protecting myself from [people bumping into me when climbing on the stage]."


Sounds like an awful lot of excuses right there.

You think he'd have contact lenses or something, just so he wouldn't continually bump into the other band members and, you know, accidentally fall off the stage. This whole thing is still an exercise in redundancy though

Why would they double his bail fees with no explanation? no doubt there's a fair bit of corruption in the czech legal system.

Still looks to me like that guy's own momentum carried him so far. He was already running.

Randy isn't a superhuman to hurl him so far with just one hand behind his head.

Just to point out, in the video, the Czech announcer says "The band had more then one altercation with fans during that concert, here is Blythe in action with a security guard" => the footage doesn't necessarily have to show the person that died (and when we're at it, it doesn't even have to be from the Prague show :D), just another random stage diver.
Czech TV nova used those images only to illustrate how it COULD have happened, and they never claimed this was the actual footage of the incident.

For those of you saying that the Czech is a third world country. No, just no. I spent three weeks their. It is a freaking beautiful civilized country. More civilized than the US. It is a fancy European country. You should 'czech' it out sometime. Yup.

From his excuses/explanations, it sounds like he hasn't seen the footage and likely that is the case given where he is right now. And it looks like the big security guy had more to do with the fan's exit velocity than Randy's one-handed toss motion while holding a mic with the other hand. Jesus this is dumb.

Does the Czech Republic have jury trials?

Also I'm impressed the dude makes 200k a year.

And yeah I mean the footage shows him doing it accident or not. Really is just a matter of what charge he gets stuck with.

I'm not a fan of the band, but I am sympathetic towards him.

I'm glad he didn't make a big deal out of trying to run from the police or refusing cutody, good for him for being cooperative with their extremely harsh-seeming measures, it's good to see someone representing much of the Genre being a good citizen and not creating more of a fiasco for once.

That said, manslaughter is manslaughter, and perhaps he shouldn't have (allegedly) thrown the guy off the stage. Everyone seems to be using the excuse that 'Post-Dimebag' no one should go on stage anymore, however if this is the 'rule' it should be enforced (much more peacefully) everywhere.

Hope the real story comes out soon, either way, though the 2 year wait is kind of sketchy...

First the Obama administration will try to use tariffs with the Czech Republic. If that does not work, they will probably cut off all trade with the nation. Failing the freeing of Mr. Blythe at that point, sanctions will be initiated followed by a shock-and-awe carpet bombing a la Iraq circa 2003.
