Randy Blythe Heads Back To Czech Republic To Resume Manslaughter Trial
And so it goes. Today, Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe returns to Prague, Czech Republic to continue his manslaughter trial after the death of a teenage fan occurred at a show there back in 2010. Last month a trial ensued for several days before being delayed until today, March 4. Read on to see what Blythe had to say regarding his return.
So far the trial has only lasted a few days and was then delayed as the request of Blythe and his legal team. Several witnesses on both sides were interviewed and the score seemed somewhat even up until the now. Outside fans and rockers have been supporting Blythe the entire time and the general consensus is that obviously he is innocent. He made the following statement last night via Instagram:
Earlier today I walked across the Legion Bridge to see the Memorial to the Victims of Communism. It is a series of male statues going up a forested hill, each statue appearing to dissolve a bit more until only a single foot is left. It’s an amazing memorial. I climbed up the stairs and looked back towards the Vltava river and Staré Mesto (‘Old Town’ in Czech). This shot pretty much shows how I’ve been feeling for a whole now- torn in half, stuck in between two worlds, neither here nor there, waiting and watching for an answer to come, so that I can move forward again as a whole man. What direction I will move in, I do not know yet. Regardless, I am ready for the waiting to be over. I will move forward no matter what, and I will not be split in two anymore, no matter where I wind up. This is frustrating for me, but I am slowly learning to be a patient man. Life just happens. Deal with it.
Stay tuned for more information about the trial as it is proceeds.
