The Kyuss/Kyuss Lives!legal mess continues to press forward. The most recent turn of events took place just last week. It saw former band members Josh Homme and Scott Reeder ask a Los Angeles, CA federal court to issue a preliminary injunction against John Garcia and Brant Bjork.
This injunction, if granted, would prevent the pair from ever using the Kyuss Lives! moniker as well. Previously Homme and Reeder had largely only been seeking to stop the aforementioned pair from obtaining the rights to the Kyuss trademarks.

Lamb Of God‘s Randy Blythe has managed to make bail in Prague, CZE. Blythe has been in police custody since last Wednesday, July 27th. He was detained on arrival to the Czech Republic last week on suspicion of manslaughter in regards to the death of a 19 year old stagediving fan at a 2010 concert in Prague.
According to Blesk.cz, Blythe paid $200,000 U.S. to make bail this morning, July 03rd. Due to certain legalities, including holidays and a pending court decision on whether or not to approve of his bail, he may remain in custody for up to another 20 days.
Meanwhile, according to the aforementioned article, the family of the deceased—who was identified as 19 year old Daniel N.—have apparently been expressing their concerns that Blythe may flee the country and never return if released. The family members involved appear to have expressed disgust that Blythe may be released on bail and are seeking “justice”.
Furthermore, additional footage of the alleged three interactions the deceased concertgoer had on the stage at the concert can be seen below. According to Lamb Of God‘s Twitter, it would appear that the third fall of the fan in the below video clip is the incident in question.

Gwar‘s Oderus Urungus has been venting on Twitter regarding the recent arrest of Lamb Of God‘s Randy Blythe overseas. Here’s some excerpts from what he had to say:
“Waiting anxiously to hear the fate of the human Randy, he is a honorary slave who has died for GWAR many times. Alarmed by the lack of outrage in the entertainment community. If this was a pop artist the media would be all over this.
Thats right I am fucking appalled at the LACK of concern in the US media for the fate of Randy Blythe… Naw, just because Randy is in a nasty metal band you can just throw his ass in jail anytime you want. The whole of music media should come the fuck out and condemn this arrest and detainment. This whole thing stinks of a shakedown.”
“And for all you Blythe-haters, eat a bowl of dick. Randy is one of the coolest mofo’s on the planet. Don’t be hating, that’s my job.”
“Where are the leaders of the American metal community, voicing outrage about the idiotic arrest of one of our own…SHAME on you Rock Star!”
