Joining a long line of rock and metal musicians who have come out to support Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe, Children of Bodom frontman Alexi Laiho has released a video sending his best wishes to Blythe. Still locked away in the Czech Republic, Blythe could possibly be let out soon if the prosecutor's challenge of the vocalist's posted bail is dismissed by the judge.
Due to Randy Blythe's month-long incarceration in the Czech Republic, an incredible amount of attention has been placed on not only the Czech Republic itself, but also its legal system. Awaiting a ruling on whether Blythe's bail will be approved after it was contested a second time by a Czech prosecutor, the Lamb of God vocalist remains in Pankrac Prison. Although this news has become well-known, the lesser-known, yet incredibly violent history of where Blythe finds himself caged, is disturbingly fascinating in its own right.
The saga of Randy Blythe's Czech imprisonment has met another road block, as the prosecutor in Blythe's case once again challenged the vocalist's bail. The prosecutor, who represents the family of a fan who died of a head injury sustained at a 2010 Lamb of God show, has now challenged Blythe's bail for the second time and is reportedly seeking to keep Blythe in prison until a possible trial begins.
In an exclusive interview with Loudwire, Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul talked about the legal situation Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe is currently in overseas in the Czech Republic. The legendary Pantera stickman knows all-too-well the dangers of fans jumping on-stage at live shows. Nearly eight years ago, his brother Dimebag Darrell was tragically shot and killed right in front of him during a Damageplan set in Columbus, Ohio.
The latest developments in the ever-changing legal saga of Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe bring both good and bad news. According to the Czech news agency iDNES.cz, the Prague Municipal Court has dismissed the prosecutor’s request to deny bail to Blythe, but in turn, the vocalist's bail amount has been doubled.
As three weeks have passed since the arrest of Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe, there hasn't been much news from Blythe himself. Lamb of God members, representatives and even Blythe's wife Cindy have been relaying information from the vocalist to the public, but now Randy Blythe has been given the opportunity to speak in an exclusive jailhouse interview.
While Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe remains in a Czech prison, facing manslaughter charges stemming from an incident where a fan died after an alleged onstage altercation with Blythe in May 2010, his hometown supporters in Richmond, Va. continue to do their part for him. Friends of Blythe are staging a vigil out front of the Supreme Court of the United States in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, July 22 from 1PM to 3PM ET.
