Lamb Of God's Blythe Recalls Homecoming After Manslaughter Trial
Dark Days, to be published later this month, covers the Lamb Of God frontman's ordeal after being charged, but later acquitted, of killing fan Daniel Nosek in 2010.
He was released on bail in August 2012, and arrived in New York on August 3. Later that day he posted a picture of himself with a fan, saying: "This lovely young woman, Lia, came to the airport to say, 'Randy, I'm glad you're home.' What a sweetheart! Her boyfriend had to work so we called him on his cell. We have awesome fans!"
In the Dark Days excerpt Blythe writes: "I made my way directly to the terminal's exit to stand on American soil (or at least New York City concrete), for the first time in months. As I moved with the crowd past the last security checkpoint, I heard a female voice call my name. I turned and saw an attractive dark haired young woman standing by the exit. 'Randy, I just wanted you to know I'm glad you're home,' she said, and gave me a hug.
"Lia had read on the Internet that I had been released from prison. The details of my flight had not been made public, but Lia had checked all the flights from Prague to JFK, and had decided to come and take a chance that she would see me in arrivals. After waiting a few fruitless hours she was about to leave, but decided to take a chance on one more flight.
"Lia was not a stalker or a weirdo; she just felt that someone should be there to welcome me back to America, and after doing so told me she would be on her way. I was deeply touched by her warm gesture, and asked her if she would stay and have a coffee with me." Read more here.
