LAMB OF GOD fans have organized help for singer Randy Blythe, who is being held on manslaughter charges in the Czech Republic. The informal vigil is scheduled for 1 p.m. this Sunday, July 8th on Brown’s Island in Richmond, Virginia.
Organizer Tommy Streat commented:
It’s a sign of unity. There’s been very little mainstream news coverage. Unless there’s more awareness, this could be dragged out for a really long time.
I know in my heart of hearts that Randy should not be in jail and the way he helps other people beyond the means most would go,” Streat told WWBT, the NBC-affiliated television station for Richmond, Virginia. “I think it’s ridiculous that he’s in jail and I think we need to get him back on this ground in Richmond. And until he’s here, we’re gonna be his voice. We’re gonna talk. We’re gonna get loud. . . Randy’s voice has been lost and we’re getting it back. If it was Justin Bieber, everybody would be talking about it.
It’s a get-together for all who care to attend to show support for our brother Randy Blythe and to voice our concerns over the travesty of justice that is currently unfolding,” Adler wrote on his Facebook page. “I hope to see you all there.
