Lamb Of God With Sign Language Interpreter

Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe Praises Woman Who Sign Language Interpreted The Band’s Set In Viral Video


After her time spent delivering a lively sign language interpretation of Lamb Of God‘s set at an Austin, Texas stop of Slayer’s farewell tour went viral last month, Lindsay Rothschild-Cross has made it to the mainstream media. ABC News recently published a story on her following an appearance she made on ‘Good Morning America‘. As part of her ‘GMA’ interview she stated of her metal background:

“I grew up with Guns N’ Roses, and Alice In Chains and Iron Maiden and things like that. I’ve never actually interpreted for death metal though. This is the first time.”

Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe also commented on her work that day, offering:

“I am always extremely pleased when I see sign language interpreters at our shows, and the show in Austin was no exception. A Lamb of God concert is a highly visceral experience for both the performers and our fans — we all feel the music together in an emotional and physical way, creating a symbiotic exchange of energy that can and does have profound effects. Deaf fans are no different, and I have long been aware that hearing impaired folks can feel the vibrations of amplified sound waves from a loud P.A. system.”

That day, there were several interpreters taking turns — they were all working hard and doing a great job, but Lindsay’s interpretation of our performance stood out to me enough that I hopped down off the stage and sang beside her for a bit. Lindsay and the other interpreters became a part of that massive exchange of energy that occurs at our shows, just as important as any of us performing on stage. I hope to see her at a show in the future!”
