BLYTHE SPEAKS OUT FROM PRISON

Lamb Of God singer Randy Blythe, who is still in Czech prison (after being charged with manslaughter of a stage-diver), recently spoke to Blesk.cz about his time behind bars:

 

“I don’t know anything about any sort of incident [that allegedly took place during the concert]. I remember very few details about the show, mainly because I have played a lot of concerts [before and after the gig in question]. I just remember that the stage at the club was very small, and we barely managed to fit our equipment on there. Also, apparently there was a security guard there because many people climbed onto the stage — including one small boy, in particular, but I could be mixing up details with what happened at other clubs. 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].”

 

“I read, I write letters to friends, family, and I also keep a diary. I get along very well with [my cellmate], and I am even trying to learn a bit of Mongolian. I’m starting to write a book about my time in the Pankrác prison and come up with lyrical ideas.”

 

“As far as the police is concerned, I believe that they have acted very professionally and followed the principles of good conduct. But in terms of justice, I honestly do not know what to expect because it is different than the U.S. I thought that if I made bail, I would be released.”

 

“My meeting with my gorgeous wife was beautiful and encouraging. I have received messages and support from family, my friends and my bandmates, who all missing me, and I cannot wait to see them all.”

 

“If I go back to the U.S., I will mow the lawn, spend some time with family and plunge right back into performing, so that I can pay for my legal fees. I have to help my friends earn some money so that we can live decently. If I had to stay in the Czech Republic, I would look at the sights, especially in Prague. I would follow Kafka‘s footprints and I would eat dumplings.”
