Czechoslovakian online newspaper Blesk.cz recently conducted an interview with Lamb Of God manager Larry Mazer, the following of which appeared in its newspaper today. This is the transcript of the interview, which we translated into English as best as we could. Read the full article here. This is what Larry Mazer has to say about the unknown plight of his client, Randy Blythe, as he continues his best to get him through this difficult time.

Blesk.cz: What is the current situation, when will Randy Blythe will be released?

Larry Mazer: I have no idea. The deposit was made on Tuesday morning. We tried to make it Monday, but it took longer than expected. Randy should have been released immediately.
His lawyer assured us on Saturday he’d be released soon. ‘You bring the money, you get released.’ I know in the US it would have happened.

Blesk.cz: How long will Randy be in jail?

Larry: They told me that it may take up to 20 days. The investigator may request more time for an investigation of the case.

Blesk.cz: What are the reactions of the other bandmembers to this?

Larry: Everyone is shocked. It’s absurd. Is it a bad joke. Randy sits in prison and he didn’t do anything. He’s innocent.

Blesk.cz: Did you know about the Czech fan dying after the concert two years ago?

Larry: We hadn’t been here for an entire two years. My data is unavailable, but I hadn’t heard from the family. We didn’t know a promoter. No answer.

Blesk.cz: When did you first learn about it?

Larry: Not until last Wednesday. The organizer of the concert at Klub Abaton told us that the Czech police contacted them three months after the boy died. I don’t get it, no one responded. The boy was in a coma and then died, and no-one said anything.

Blesk.cz: Czech police said they contacted the American side …

Larry: No one said anything to us. Do you think that I’d let the band to play in the Czech Republic if I had known this?

Blesk.cz: The police say that Randy pushed the fan off the stage…

Larry: There is a video of the concert, which shows someone jumping into the audience. But Randy didn’t push him, he pushed the guards.

Blesk.cz: Was it a member of Randy’s security detail?

Larry: You can see that the man fell to the ground, into the crowd. The fall is there.

Blesk.czt is normal that Lamb of God concerts are so wild?

Larry: It’s typical for rock concerts. People want to have fun. Lamb of God concerts are no different.

Lamb Of God

Lamb Of God manager Larry Mazer has spoken about Randy Blythe’s shocking arrest in a new interview with Czech news site Blesk.cz. Check out a translation of the interview below…

Blesk.cz: What is the latest on Randy Blythe’s release?

Larry Mazer: “I have no idea. The bail [in the amount of $200,000] was posted Tuesday morning [July 3]. We tried to make bail on Monday, but everything took a bit longer to be processed. Randy should be released immediately. His lawyer told us so on Saturday [during a court hearing]. In the U.S., he would have been. You post the bail and you’re free.”

Blesk.cz: How long will Randy stay in jail?

Larry Mazer: “I was told that it may take up to 20 days — that the investigator may require more time to investigate the case.”

Blesk.cz: How have the other bandmembers reacted to this whole ordeal?

Larry Mazer: “Everybody is shocked. It’s absurd. It seems like a bad joke that Randy is sitting in your jail. He did nothing wrong. He is innocent.”

Randy Blythe

Blesk.cz: Were you aware that a Czech fan of Lamb Of God died two years ago shortly after attending the band’s concert?

Larry Mazer: “Nobody had contacted us in the last two years. My contact information is publicly available, but I never heard from the family [of the deceased fan]. We did not even hear anything about it from the concert organizer. Nobody called us to let us know.”

Blesk.cz: When did you first find out about the fan having died after allegedly sustaining injuries at the Lamb Of God concert?

Larry Mazer: “Last Wednesday [when Randy was detained at the Prague airport]. The organizer of the concert at Abaton [the club where the 2010 concert took place] now says that the Czech police contacted him three months after the boy died. I do not understand why no one got in touch with us to let us know. The boy was in a coma and then he died, and we never heard from anybody.”

Blesk.cz: The Czech police say that they contacted the American authorities…

Larry Mazer: “No one told us anything. Do you think that I would send the band to the Czech Republic to play a concert knowing that something like this could happen? No way!”

Blesk.cz: According to the police, Randy shoved the Czech fan off the stage…

Larry Mazer: “There is one video from the concert [see below] where you can see someone jumping into the audience. But it wasn’t Randy that pushed him. The security guard shoved him off the stage.”

Blesk.cz: In the video you can see both Randy and the security guard pushing the person off the stage…

Larry Mazer: “But there is no footage of the man falling to the ground. He fell into the crowd, but you can’t see that in the video.”

Blesk.cz: Is it common for Lamb Of God concerts to be so wild?

Larry Mazer: “It’s typical for rock concerts. People want to have fun. But nothing like this has ever happened at a Lamb Of God show before that I am aware of.”
