It seems like Randy Blythe can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The Richmond Times Dispatch is reporting that an appeals court has upheld the acquittal of the Lamb Of God frontman accused of manslaughter due to the death of a fan at a concert in the Czech Republic. He had been found not guilty of manslaughter charges in March but the State Attorney promised to appeal but that verdict was upheld by the High Court in the Czech Republic and is final.

Blythe was accused of pushing Daniel Nosek, a 19-year-old who had climbed onto the stage during a 2010 concert of the band in Prague. Nosek's head hit the floor and he later died of a head injury. Blythe spent several weeks in jail. Nevertheless, a person died in the end, and that is not cause for celebration.

Blythe previously wrote: "If you are a fan and are going to a Lamb Of God show or ANY SHOW where there will be moshing, crowd surfing, etc. - know that what you are doing carries a risk. Use your brain - if it is too rough for you, get out before you get hurt. If you are wasted on whatever, please realize that you are not a stuntman, sit your ass down at the bar, and relax. Being obliterated is not conducive to injury-free concert activities."

"Also, for Pete's sake, if you are moshing and someone falls down, PICK THEM UP. We have stopped shows before because people have been getting hurt, and we will do it again. This is our community, and we should take care of each other. A show is a place we are supposed to be together, having a good time, supporting one another. The real world will beat you down enough - we don't need to get stomped on at a show. Give each other a hand."

OK, that's a relief. I remember saying that he wasn't completely out of the woods when he was originally found not guilty, so this is definitely the best news we could have hoped for.

I like the way he thinks.

Agree with everything... I loved that part: "if you are moshing and someone falls down, PICK THEM UP"...this is something, and this is a warning of those blindly fools whose conscience is weak to go to a mosh without beeing ready for possible deal with it...i stopped doing mosh on concerts (parcialy) because of these exemples...i think it's more fun for me just to watch and apreciate as i always do and did...i'm not an adventurer...just a music explorer (in my best way)...sorry for my bad english!

Complete respect to Randy for this statement and the way he has handled this situation. He is a true Gentleman. I don't think i would have been able to act with the dignity that he has.
I'm so proud to say I'm a fan of this man. All the best my Brother.
