Lamb Of God's Randy Blythe On Being Political

Lamb Of God

(TeamRock Radio) Lamb Of God's Randy Blythe says he shouldn't be expected to take responsibility for society as a musician in the public eye. Though he says artists are in a way "the voice of society" - the vocalist feels he shouldn't have to speak out on social and political issues.

When asked what responsibilities he has as a musician, he tells Full Metal Jackie: "That's a question I ask myself often. You know, 'what is my responsibility, if any?'

"Sometimes I think as an artist - in arts in general - you're a reflection of society and the state of it. We are the voice of society in a way. You can go down the route of taking yourself way too seriously that way. Sometimes I think as an artist, it's important to at least be an articulate commentator on the events of today."
