Gwar Frontman Is 'Appalled' At Lack Of Concern In U.S. Media For Fate Of Randy Blythe
According to Blabbermouth.net, GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus is one of a number of musicians who have come out in support of Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe, who is facing manslaughter charges in the Czech Republic. Blythe, 41, is accused of causing the fatal injury that occurred at Lamb Of God's May 24, 2010 show in Prague. The singer apparently either pushed or struck a 19-year-old fan named Daniel N. who had come on stage, and that person died 14 days later of bleeding in the brain. In a series of tweets, Oderus wrote, "[I am] waiting anxiously to hear the fate of the human Randy. He is a honorary slave who has died for GWAR many times. [I am] alarmed by the lack of outrage in the entertainment community. If this was a pop artist, the media would be all over this. That's right - I am f--king appalled at the LACK of concern in the U.S. 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 mofos 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!" Both GWAR and Lamb Of God hail from Richmond, Virginia and have toured together. The crime of which Blythe is being accused is punishable by up to ten years in prison, according to popular Czech news web site Novinky.cz.
