LAMB OF GOD guitarist Willie Adler has posted a message on his Facebook page inviting all of the band’s supporters in the Richmond, Virginia area to attend the “Free Randy Blythe Vigil” on Sunday, July 8 on Browns Island from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m.
LAMB OF GOD singer Randy Blythe, 41, is accused of causing the fatal injury that occurred at the band’s May 24, 2010 show in Prague. The singer allegedly either pushed or struck a 19-year-old fan named Daniel N. — a guitarist in a local metal group — and that person died almost a month later of bleeding in the brain.
Randy has been charged with causing “bodily harm of the fourth degree, resulting in the death of a fan” and faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
Willie writes: “I want to thank all for the support first and foremost. I also want to share the link to the event this Sunday on Brown Island here in Richmond. An event spearheaded by Mr. Tommy Streat. It’s a get-together for all who care to attend to show support for our brother Randy Blythe, and to voice our concerns over the travesty of justice that is currently unfolding. I hope to see you all there.”
Blythe remains in detention at Pankrác Prison in Prague even after Mazer posted 4 million Czech Koruna bail (approximately $200,000), as set by the court last Saturday. But the bail system in the Czech Republic is not as rapid as in the U.S.
Although bail has been posted, the decision to release the singer is still subject to appeal and so it will take some time for the state prosecutor’s office to give approval.
