Lamb Of God: Stay Off Our Stage
Lamb Of God bassist John Campbell has said the fan who died of injuries at one of their shows, which led to their singer Randy Blythe being accused of manslaughter, should never have been on stage in the first place. Blythe's legal fees continue to stack up. His bail alone cost $400,000, and by August they were forced to auction their most prized possessions. Now the band are calling on friends and bands to donate items to a new auction to raise extra funds. "It was a tragic event," Campbell told Mlive... "It's not the first time somebody jumped off stage, I've done it myself when I was younger. "In this day and age, though, I'd prefer not to have people on stage. People pay to see us perform, and that's not part of the production we have planned. It's not about a guy jumping on stage and flapping his arms and jumping off. "In my opinion he never should have been on stage in the first place." Blythe is currently in the US but plans to return to the Czech Republic to face trial. If found guilty, he faces up to ten years in jail. Do you think fans should take responsibility for their health when they invade the stage? Should incidents like this and the death of Dimebag Darrell make us rethink certain aspects of metal culture? Share your opinion in the comments.
