RANDY BLYTHE Would Play The Czech Republic Again Under Certain Conditions


Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe was arrested in June 2012 in the Czech Republic for alleged manslaughter changes related to the death of Daniel Nosek. Nosek ran on stage during Lamb Of God‘s performance in 2010 and was pushed off the stage by Blythe. Nosek hit his head when falling off the stage and ultimately died of the injury. Blythe was eventually acquitted of the charges in 2013 and detailed the situation, as well as his conversations with Nosek‘s family, in his book Dark Days.

Now in an interview with Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk, Blythe said he’d be open to playing in the country again but would need to work some things out with “certain people” as not to disrespect Nosek‘s family.

“I don’t rule it out. But it would have to be under the right circumstances. I mean, I’m allowed to go there. But unless things were worked out in advance with certain people, I think it would be rude to go back there. Because if I went back there to play a show, it would be huge news. And there’s a family who’s still missing a son there. So I don’t wish them to be any more upset than they already are; they’ve suffered enough.

“So, if the circumstances were right and we had their blessing or whatever, I wouldn’t mind going and playing a show and then donating the money to charity or something. But other than that, Lamb Of God really has no business going there, if the circumstances aren’t right, ’cause I don’t want to cause anyone any further emotional duress.”
