Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe released on bail
Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe has been released on bail after a month in custody in Prague.
The singer has posted bail of around 8 million Czech Koruna to gain his freedom and has been allowed to return to the US, but will still have to face trial in the Czech Republic.
Classic Rock reports that Blythe told a Czech TV that “If it’s necessary for me to return to Prague to go to this court thing, I certainly will. I’m no flight risk… It’s very tragic that a young man died. I feel very bad that his family has to go through it. I feel awful for them – but it’s a tragic coincidence in my mind…”
“To people who are not used to this type of music, I know it must seem crazy and violent. But that sort of activity is normal at a concert. That concert was one of literally thousands I’ve played… I did not know anyone was hurt. When I showed up in Prague I was very surprised to be arrested. We had no knowledge that someone had been injured, much less died.”
