GWAR frontman brings awareness to Randy Blythe's detention

GWAR frontman Oderus Urangus ditched his stage attire and voiced his concerns as himself, Dave Brockie, about the lack of publicity in a recent Randy Blythe detention in Czech Republic. In a televised plea on WTVR-TV (CBS affiliate) he addressed to those in power stating his concern while mocking the fact that far less talented, yet far better selling acts such as Justin Bieber would likely bring on military intervention in a similar case.

Blythe, 41, is accused of causing the fatal injury that occurred at LAMB OF GOD's May 24, 2010 show in Prague. The singer allegedly either pushed or struck a 19-year-old fan named Daniel N. — a guitarist in a local metal band — and that person died almost a month later of bleeding in the brain.

Randy has been charged with causing "bodily harm of the fourth degree, resulting in the death of a fan" and faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
"It takes 10 days to process a bail request?" Brockie said. "I mean, what are they working with, clay tablets, or something? You know, 'Let's get some pack mules and send the clay tablets over to the Minister of Fuddy Duddery."
Watch Brockie voice his opinion on the matter on WTVR-TV.
