För ungefär en månad sedan fick Lamb Of Gods frontman Randy Blythe veta att hans rättegång i Prag, Tjeckien börjar den 4 februari. Han anklagas för dråp på ett fan som ägde rum under en spelning 2010.
Även fast Blythe har möjligheten att stanna kvar i USA och undvika rättegången har han beslutat sig för att åka dit och kämpa för sin frihet. Han har nyligen lagt upp ett poetiskt tal på Instagram som kan läsas i sin helhet här under.
”The last 2 or 3 days I have been getting ready mentally to leave my home & return to Prague to do this whole trial thing in early February. It’s not something I particularly WANT to do; but inside, my gut & heart tells me it is the RIGHT thing to do. I cannot turn my back (on) the right thing. As I’ve been thinking, I’ve (been) shooting (pictures) a lot around my hometown. I love this place. A couple of days ago I went to my mechanic to get my truck worked on- the garage is over near the CSX train yard here in Richmond. I dropped off my truck & went creeping under the over pass that runs above the tracks. As usual, there was a lot of sleeping gear, trash, old mattresses & stuff that homeless people keep there. In my younger days, I used to ride freight trains across our country. I have spent many nights under bridges just like this one in freight yards across the USA. I have always loved to travel, & have been across the USA three times without a dime in my pocket most of the time, learning the survival skills of the hobos & street people of our country. You can get by with almost nothing if you know what you are doing. This old suit case sitting up on this ledge really captured my attention. I wonder what it once held? Safe travels to whoever owns it…”
