Lamb of God: 'We Can't Just Stop People From Stage-Diving'
Guitarist Mark Morton and drummer Chris Adler of Lamb of God recently discussed the subject of stage-diving and the way their views have changed since the tragic incident in Czech Republic and subsequent trial of frontman Randy Blythe. During an interview with Fuse TV, the two have commented that the band cannot simply prevent the audience members from stage-diving, stressing out the importance of fans taking responsibility for their own actions. "Since I've been growing up it's always been a common practice, stage-diving and stuff like that. We see more and more people getting hurt doing that kind of thing," the drummer said. "There's so many random pieces to the puzzle that can end up with loss of life, as what we had happen to us." Adler continued, saying, "It's not that we want to change the show, We can't just stop people from stage-diving for the rest of eternity, that's not what we're trying to do, but I think [that] when you come to the show, you need to know that you need to be responsible for your actions and you need to think about what you're doing." Guitarist then chipped in, adding, "You know, based on that experience, I think it just underscored, probably for all of us, the need for everyone to be safe at shows and to look out for each other. It's scary that there are situations people can get hurt in. "Randy mentions it on stage a little more often and just tries to keep everyone aware of it. We're all there to have fun, it's not about getting hurt, that's for sure," guitarist concluded. Blythe himself has recently posted a lengthy emotional letter, asking everyone to be safe and be careful at the band's shows. "Absolutely no one is welcome on the stage if we have not invited you up there, and unless you are a small child or in a wheel chair, that is not likely to happen," the frontman said. "Please respect this." As far as the upcoming Lamb of God live shows go, the band has recently confirmed new summer tour dates with a string of concerts stretching all the was to mid-August across North America and Europe.
