Blogger Details Incident Involving Lamb Of God Frontman

randy-blythe

News of Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe being arrested on charges of manslaughter is still spreading across the metal universe, and while we’re still hoping for the best, new information is making others a bit more skeptical.

A Czech music blog called SicMaggot covered the very show in question when Lamb Of God performed in Prague nearly two years ago. With news of Blythe’s arrest, the site dug through their archives and pulled the story up to showcase another concert attendee’s perspective on the night’s events. Before I get to the post however, let me note that Czech does not translate perfectly to English (at least when using Google), and that some of what follows may seem a bit hard to follow. That said, here’s the excerpt most blogs are passing around:

“Randy behaved exactly as I expected him to, a son of a bitch who pisses off everyone. He’s confirmed by firing up several fans. [Randy] was very irritated when someone decided to join him on stage. At first Randy hit him a lot, then Randy jumped on him to hold him down while he continued singing? When the fan got up, Randy took him by the hair and threw down quite quickly. It was a good thing the fan was so dazed that he probably felt nothing. It took him a little while to realize what happened and as he struggled to get his breathe back. Randy does behave quite pretentious, but the performance was important to him.”

Here’s hoping Randy returns home soon. Our thoughts are with him, the band, and the family worldwide.
