The Connection Between "Dimebag" Darrell's Death & Randy Blythe's Trial
As we all know, David Randall Blythe from LAMB OF GOD is fighting the fight of his life. Blythe was imprisoned for five weeks in the Czech Republic after being detained on June 27, 2012 when the Grammy-nominated, Richmond, Virginia-based band arrived there for a show. The singer was freed without charge in August but had to post $400,000 bail, then left the country.
According to the prosecution, Blythe shoved Daniel Nosek, a 19 years old fan, off stage, thus inflicting fatal wounds on him. After being released on bail, which was contended by the State Attorney, Blythe refused responsibility for Nosek's death and pledged to return to attend the trial.
While the trial began on Monday, February 4, the trial had to be postponed until March 4, due to the fact that one witness fell ill and two criminal psychologists who were expected to testify were unable to attend during that week.
Prior to the trial, Randy was able to tour the Unites States with his band LAMB OF GOD. On December 8, 2013, it was "Dimebag" Darrell Abbot's eight death anniversary. That night, LAMB OF GOD's tour with IN FLAMES, HELLYEAH and SYLOSIS, arrived in Kansas City, Missouri. The very next day, Randy reflected on his friend Darrell and how his tragic passing made musicians like Randy to always be in the lookout whenever someone they don't know joins them on stage.
