8/10 Monday: Randall Blythe's Memoir of his Czech Prison Time, The Importance of Libraries, and DA Hillar Moore and the Murder Investigation of Brittney Mills


D. Randall Blythe

David Randall Blythe is the vocalist and lyricist of American groove metal band Lamb of God.  Blythe was arrested in 2012 in the Czech Republic and was indicted on manslaughter charges related to the 2010 death of a 19-year-old fan after a Lamb of God concert. The Czech court found that Blythe had pushed the fan off the stage and was "morally responsible" for the killing, though Blythe was acquitted of the criminal charges after it was determined that promoters and security held the liability for the fan's death.  Blythe shares his memoir of his time in a Czech prison.
