Tuesday, February 21: Tig’s Rock Birthdays
Happy Birthday today (Feb. 21) Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe. He’s 46. Other rockers celebrating include original Uriah Heep bassist Paul Newton (69) and Talking Heads keyboardist, guitarist Jerry Harrison (68).
Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe was influenced by punk bands like the Sex Pistols, Bad Brains, and Black Flag. Blythe was arrested in the Czech Republic back in June of 2012 and indicted on manslaughter charges related to the 2010 death of a 19 year old fan at a concert. He was eventually acquitted of the charges in the well documented case. For more on Lamb of God, check out the band’s official website here.
I had the chance to speak with John Campbell (bassist for Lamb of God) at last year's Rock 'N Derby event outside of Albany. Check out the conversation below.
