So I guess this puts a damper on Randys Presidential campaign, eh?

Seriously though...Randy is one of the best vocalists of all time. Hope he didn't do this.

Decent band hope they ain't out of action for too long but if he did what he's accused of he's gotta pay the price, surely not intentional of him to hurt a fan!

Well, if he was just trying to get the guy out of his way and punched him in the temple, that would've killed him instantly and accidentally.

But I really doubt this, tbh. I think Czech is making a big mistake.

he is out of jail now he had to pay 4 million dollars in czech money, which came to be about 200,000 american dollars. supposedly the guy jumped the barricade twice and was warned, on the third time the security went to get him but it was too late and he rushed the stage and blythe pushed him and he fell back into the crowd and hit his head, the guy went into a coma and died weeks later. this was in 2010 the czechs kept it quiet until LOG was supposed to tour with skeletonwitch and when blythe came back to the czech republic was arrested.

safe to say he will stay clear of that country

I feel bad for him as well. People get pushed off the stage all the time at concerts. It's not like he tried to kill the guy. And the fan came on stage 2 times previous that. He has no one to blame but himself. Also, how the fuck does security let the same guy get on stage 3 times?

Now Randy has to pay $200,000 and live the rest of his life knowing he killed someone. The fan and security are to blame here.

agreed with you and KDH, when i first heard about this they made it sound like randy took the guy and clubbed him to death with his mic stand or something

the guy was warned twice and after what happend to dimebag musicians are really nervous as it is when people get on stage. i doubt dimebag thought a guy on stage was their to kill him, i have read some people saying thats bullshit and dimes murder had nothing to do with this :rolleyes:

i think in a lot of ways this world has really lost the concept of your actions carry consequences
