Blythe Was 'Extremely Aggressive', Say Witnesses
Randy Blythe's manslaughter case has begun, and several witnesses including members of Lamb Of God have been making statements to the court. While some defend the singer, other dispute Randy's claims of innocence and called his behaviour "extremely aggressive." Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler and their manager Larry Mazer said Blythe was quiet, well read, and merely put up an aggressive persona as part of their stage show. One witness insisted they saw him push the fan from the stage: "[Daniel] climbed onto the stage, he turned to the audience and was thrown into the crowd. Blythe pushed him from behind with both hands, I'm one hundred percent sure," said witness Jan Jebav, according to Blabbermouth. Another said that Blythe asked the crowd if the person was okay, and continued when the crowd said he was. However, Blythe has written an open letter to fans on Instagram to remind them that the language barrier is affecting US reports on the case: "I have read a few news reports of the progress of my case, and trust me - many things are incorrect. But this is the Internet, and, of course, things are half-baked anyway. Keep in mind that translation is difficult, and many things can be lost, for Czech is a VERY DIFFICULT language." He added that Lamb Of God fans should try to remain respectful of the Czech Republic, despite their country pressing charges against him: "I have heard of some people talking smack about the Czech Republic, saying, 'F--k the Czech Republic,' etc. This [is] not how it should be. This is a very sad case, not something to rage at people you do not know over. "I am not angry with the Czechs at all. A fan of my band is dead - what do I have to be angry about? I am an INNOCENT man, but I am also a very sad man right now. To not be sad in this instance would be inhuman. But mad at the Czech people? Why would I be mad at them? The end of his letter was sentimental, and finished with: "Life is beautiful. I hope to see y'all soon."
