Medford Oregon has left a bad taste in the mouth of Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe.
During a show at The Armory on Friday night, Blythe asked the crowd to stand silent for sixty seconds to honor the victims of the Newton Connecticut massacre. While many in the crowd did exactly that, numerous individuals decided to ignore Blythe’s wishes. After the show, Blythe left the following message on his Instagram account.
“…I have never been more disgusted with an audience in my life. I wish we hadn’t played. We, lamb of god, asked for sixty seconds of silence during our 1st set break to honor the dead children & teachers in CT.
It seemed appropriate- it’s a goddamned national TRAGEDY. Most of the crowd complied, but several didn’t, some cursing & even laughing. I wanted to walk off stage. I am so disgusted right now- if you were one of those who wouldn’t shut up for SIXTY LOUSY SECONDS to honor twenty MURDERED CHILDREN- go look in the mirror. You are looking at a piece of shit.
Your parents are obviously pieces of shit too, because they raised you to behave with no dignity. To the fans who were respectful, I thank you. I am also sorry you have so many goddamned assholes in your community.
You should do something about that. This shit would not have happened at a lamb of god show where I live, & that is a FACT. We have more manners. I am just disgusted. Thoroughly DIGUSTED. You yelling people give metal a bad name-screw that, you give humanity a bad name.
Grow up. Your parents should have beaten some manners into you, you savage little beasts. With that I will go to bed, say a prayer for those suffering, & hope for a better day tomorrow, because tonight SUCKED.”
In other Blythe news, a February 4th date has been set for his manslaughter trial in the Czech Republic. Blythe has previously gone on record that he will return to the nation where he spent a large chunk of his summer incarcerated after the death of a fan at a 2010 show.
