Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe begins trial

Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe was due in court today in the Czech Republic to stand trial on charges of manslaughter stemming from the death of a concert-goer roughly two years ago. If convicted, Blythe could be sentenced to a lengthy jail term. Speaking via Instagram, Blythe commented: "And so it begins. I am calm and prepared. Everyone, thanks for your good thoughts and prayers. Have a nice day, y'all!" Addressing the court this morning, Blythe had the following to say:
"I've kept my word. I said that I would come back to court today and I did. I do not shy away from responsibility. I'm not a person who runs away from problems. But I do not want to be punished for something I did not do."
On a personal note, we wish Blythe the best and expect a just outcome. Randy Blythe
