Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe is currently in a Czech jail on a manslaughter charge stemming from an incident at one of their shows. If you haven’t read the story, check out the previous “exclamation.” We encourage everyone to donate to his legal fund if you have the means…

Editor’s Note: Metal shows are brutal. Everyone knows that pits break out at any time, and anywhere. It’s a sad fact that someone died at Lamb of God’s show. Randy didn’t go out into the crowd, he didn’t start a fight… The man rushed the stage three times, and Randy was protecting himself by pushing the man back into the crowd.
Need we revisit what happened to Pantera’s Dimebag Darrell? A crazed fan rushed the stage, shot and killed Dimebag.
Is it a shame that someone ended up dead in Czechoslovakia? Of course. However, once someone repeatedly rushes past security barricades, bands will defend themselves. 99% of the time, fans are harmless, but one can never tell.
I hope that the LOG family comes out free and clear, and Randy is quickly/safely released.
