Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe by Ken Pierce (11/2009)

I woke up this morning to a barrage of posts about Lamb Of God’s singer Randy Blythe being found Not Guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter in the Czech Republic and while this news is awesome, let’s ever forget that the whole story stemmed from a tragic and very unnecessary accident during one of the bands shows in the region. The young fan of the band, Daniel Nosek, is still dead and while the larger opinion is that his injuries were as result of his own actions, it still sucks that a fan eventually died after a show. My hope is that this shines a beacon of light on how to behave at shows among the millions of fans that see them. Be careful, don’t do anything stupid during or before/after a show, and the biggest of them all……STAY OFF THE STAGE. Its not your domain, its the bands and its dangerous. That’s all my soapboxing. Oh the shot above was taken by me in 2009 when the band was opening for Metallica at MSG. In case you wondered.

I copied Randy’s statement from his Instagram account where he says “I have been found not guilty & acquitted of all charges against me. I am a free man. This photo was taken by my friend @aceyslade- it says it all. Please remember the family of Daniel Nosek in your thoughts & prayers in this difficult time. I only wish for them peace. Thank you for your support- Randy” but I did not copy the photo. You should Follow his account on http://instagram.com/drandallblythe/ because its pretty amazing.

My hope is that no snags or appeals come up about this case and that Randy remains free. Stay safe my friends.

Good Luck To Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe…

Earlier today, Lamb Of Gods singer Randy Blythe returned to the Czech Republic to stand trial for manslaughter charges which are based on the death of one of their fans (Daniel Nosek) who passed away after injuries suffered during a Prague concert by the band just over two years ago.

So much has already been discussed about the event and sad inevitability of it all so I’ll just share a photo of Randy doing one of the things he does best (the other is photography) and wish him the very best of luck during this truly hellish experience. According to some news posts I have read since the singers arrival in the Czech Republic, the trial is already underway and they are expecting a verdict as early as Friday. This seems kind of quick, but then again I am comparing our own justice system to that of a foreign land. As a fan of Lamb Of God I hope for a positive outcome for the singer but still feel much sadness for the family who lost their son. I feel Randy is an innocent man, and that fans should not be on the stage in any sense but they get up there anyway and sometimes get hurt. This is one of the outcomes. It sucks no matter how you look at it. Good luck Randy. The Metal World is behind you at this time.
