Lamb Of God’s Manager Speaks On Randy Blythe’s Legal Situation
Lamb Of God‘s manager Larry Mazer recently discussed the ongoing imprisonment of Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe with Rollingstone.com. Though published today, July 05th, the interview originally took place this past Tuesday, July 03rd. Some excerpts can be found below with the full interview available at the aforementioned link.
Speaking on Randy‘s situation, Mazer offered:
“We were told on Saturday that he had been approved by the judge for bail – $200,000 – and if we paid it, he would be released probably this morning. We all went to bed thinking that he would be out. I had flights booked for him to come back. And then at 4 o’clock this morning – because they’re six hours ahead – I received a call from the lawyer in the Czech Republic telling us that the prosecution was challenging the bail, and because of that, he wouldn’t be released today.”
On the topic of the case itself, Mazer stated:
“…There are YouTube videos, which 100 percent show Randy’s innocence. As a matter of fact, all of those videos have now been sent to our lawyer, and he’s presenting it to the judge tomorrow morning [July 4th]. This case is so full of holes. Nobody reported an injury of any kind at the concert, or after the concert. It was at least an hour to two hours later, supposedly, when this kid went to a hospital.
So that’s number one – why did nothing occur during the show? Number two, he had supposedly been in a coma for 30 days, but it wasn’t [until] a couple of months later that they contacted the promoter to ask his understanding of the events. He said the same thing – that the show went on fine, no nothing, no incidents. They told him that a person had been injured, which led to a death, which he had no knowledge of whatsoever. And then it went away. Two years go by, and Randy gets arrested.”
