Randy Blythe (Lamb Of God) atacado em Dublin
Os Lamb Of God encontram-se em tour e no passado domingo Randy Blythe não teve uma boa noite de passeio. Um dia antes do concerto na cidade de Dublim, aproveitando a boa noite que se pôs, o músico decidiu ir dar um passeio e tirar uma fotos junto à ponte Samuel Beckett Bridge.
Segundo o músico, ele rapidamente viu-se rodeado por um grupo de miúdos. Após ser perseguido e encurralado, Randy Blythe foi atingido na cabeça e a cena só não ficou pior porque um taxista assustou o grupo.
Randy Blythe descreveu a cena toda na sua conta do instagram:
Sometimes doing what you love comes at a price: here’s the Samuel Beckett bridge in Dublin, Ireland. Last night around midnight I walked one block away from my hotel to take some long exposures- right after I shot this very frame, I looked up & saw 5 or 6 teenage dudes (16 to 18 year olds?) in hoodies & track pants spreading out around me. “Well, crap, I guess it’s on” I thought. I started stepping quickly into the street away from the little cul-de-sac where I was (it was a bad spot to be trapped), trying to keep my eye on all of them at the same time. One kid drew up to my left getting close & BLAM- someone else hit me in the head from behind with something (I think they had a stick or whatever)- I saw stars for a second, then I heard car horns & a cabbie was driving at these kids & I was standing in the street trying to shake it off, because that little fucker had rang my bell pretty good. Like all cowards & weaklings all over the world, they came at me in numbers and struck from behind. I never even had a chance to smash one of the little shits because the cabbie (thank you, whoever you are) scattered them while I was regaining my wits. So now my glasses are gone (but I have contacts), my new Surf City hat w/the Black Flag bars is gone (but I brought another hat), my new e-cig is gone (but I have others), & I have a split open elbow & a bit of a headache (but it could have been much, much worse- I could have caught a knife). I remain grateful- I’M FINE. I’ve been in some of the sketchiest neighborhoods on earth & escaped unharmed, but last night I got distracted & forgot my street smarts for a couple of minutes. That was very, VERY stupid of me, & I paid the price. So lesson learned here is STAY ALERT, y’all. And Dublin- I still love you, I’m NOT afraid to come here, it’s a lovely city, BUT… please neuter & spay your feral children, because next time they might club someone whose head isn’t as hard as mine & kill them. They didn’t even try to rob me, they just wanted to hurt someone, anyone – it was nothing personal for them- this makes me very SAD for these children. So Dublin, sorry if tonight’s show was a little rough- I did my best for y’all…
