Disturbed, GWAR Frontmen Comment Further On Randy Blythe’s Arrest
Disturbed singer David Draiman and GWAR’s Oderus Urungus have both continued to speak out in support of Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe, who was arrested in the Czech Republic last week and is currently facing charges of manslaughter.
“The only thing [Randy] is guilty of [is being involved in] a horrible accident,” says Draiman. “Someone comes up on stage, they get thrown back into the pit. [I've] done it a hundred times myself. The fault should be in the hands of the venue security who were supposed to ensure that no one got up there. It’s a dangerous thing to try.”
“I LOVE Europe and its many pleasures and fully support Euro metalheads,” adds Oderus. “What I am concerned about is the lack of outrage. There should be shows, protests, and continual harassment of the authorities until Randy is free. There should be a mob of metalheads outside the jail where he is being held, 24-7, so when he gets out he can see with his own eyes that he has not been abandoned. All of the video of the incident shows it for what it truly was… a tragic accident. Fucking let him out already!”
Metal Hammer will continue to monitor the situation closely and post any updates the second we find them.
