If you thought that the Randy Blythe saga was over as soon as the Lamb of God vocalist returned home from the Czech Republic after being held for a month on suspicion of manslaughter, it’s not so simple. His case is still set to go to trial in Prague, so he’ll have to return, and legal bills are continuing to pile up. While Blythe was still being held in Prague, the remainder of the band launched a legal defense fund for the singer. Now they’ve created an eBay auction of memorabilia to raise money for his bills.
All five members of Lamb of God have donated items including cymbals, guitars and even a duct tape-wrapped microphone used by Blythe. And it’s not just Lamb of God swag either. Artists including Machine Head and Five Finger Death Punch and Megadeth’s Dave Ellefson have also donated stuff. Even if you’re one of those people that feel a little strange about contributing money towards a defense fund for someone that allegedly makes $200k/year, you’ll still be able to get your hands on some one-of-a-kind musical gear that you wouldn’t normally be able to. Get your bid on here.
