Lamb Of God’s Willie Adler Addresses Criticism Surrounding Donations For Randy Blythe’s Legal Fees
Lamb Of God guitarist Willie Adler has taken to his Facebook to thanks fans for their support and address the recent criticisms directed towards the band. Those criticisms stem from the group seeking donations for legal fees to help free Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe.
His statement can be found below; while Blythe has of course been imprisoned in Prague, CZE for over a week on allegations of manslaughter. The situation centers on the death of a fan who was fatally injured at show the band played in Prague in 2010.
“I want to thank all of you again for your un- waivering support in all of this. It’s greatly appreciated and does not go with out notice. I’d also feel re-miss by not mentioning something else.
As you all know, a legal fund has been set up in regards to our current situation. We’ve received quite a bit of backlash which I’d like to respond to. We are by no means requesting charity, nor are we demanding money from our fans.
We have received dozens upon dozens of requests from supporters wanting to help in any way possible. This was a direct response to that in order to give fans a voice in all of this if they choose to do so.
By no means are we trying to make a dime off of this. Trust me, we live for our fans and would never attempt to profit off of them. This is purely a response to those that reached out wanting to extend any and all help.
Which we couldn’t be more thankful for. It brings tears to my eyes as I write this just thinking about the outpouring of support we’ve received.
Collectively, we will bring Randy home. He is my brother, your brother, and more importantly, an innocent man being wrongfully detained. I thank you all again, for everything. I love you all.”
