  BREAKING NEWS RANDY BLYTHE RELEASED FROM CZECH PRISON
3rd August 2012



metallica



Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has released after spending more than a month at a Prague, Czech Republic prison on manslaughter charges.

After the court doubled Randy's bail last month from $200,000 to $400,000, the prosecutor once again filed a complaint against the singer's release which delayed it until now.

Gabriela Pohlová, a spokeswoman for the prison said within the last hour: "I can confirm that [Blythe] was released yesterday afternoon."

The Prague Municipal Court's ruling against the prosecutor of the Prague 8 District Court was made yesterday afternoon behind closed doors.

Martina Lhotáková, spokeswoman for Prague's Municipal Court, said: "The decision was reached yesterday at the end of a closed session. The only condition of release was the approximately 8 million Czech Koruna bail," she added. That sum has, of course, already been paid.

Blythe's Czech attorney Martin Radvan told Radio Prague that he expected Blythe to be able to travel home, but that the singer will have to return to the Czech Republic to face trial. "That's what he wants to do," Radvan said. "As a world-renowned artist, in a specific genre of music, of course, he cannot afford to simply disappear.

"There would be posters with his picture all around the world, and if he wants to continue performing, he will have to return. And he wants to return because he believes he is not guilty of anything he has been charged with."

The U.S. Embassy in Prague on July 11 released a very brief statement regarding Blythe: "The U.S. Embassy provides standard consular services to American citizens in need of assistance. We cannot discuss specific cases due to privacy concerns."

NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

aerosmith

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
