In early June, Warner Music conducted an interview with guitarist Willie Adler and vocalist Randy Blythe of Richmond, Virginia metallers LAMB OF GOD at the Rock Im Park festival at Zeppelinfeld in Nürnberg, Germany. You can now watch the chat in two parts below.
According to WTVR-TV — the CBS television affiliate based in Richmond, Virginia — official sources have confirmed that Blythe‘s next Czech court appearance in connection with the death of a fan at one of LAMB OF GOD‘s concerts is scheduled for Thursday, July 19.
Blythe, 41, is accused of causing the fatal injury that occurred at LAMB OF GOD‘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.
Blythe, who has already posted bail of 4 million Czech Koruna (approximately $200,000), will have been imprisoned for three weeks by the time he gets his next day in court.
Next week’s hearing will reportedly involve a panel of judges that meet to review the prosecutors bail challenge; they can approve the bail or annul the bail.
The Prague Monitor reports that district court judge Petr Fassati said that even after that ruling, a Prague attorney could still be allowed to again comment on bail.
Martin Holub, a lawyer at Šafra Partners, told The Prague Post if bail is revoked, Blythe could be kept in prison for up to six months.
