Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe will tell the story of what happened in the Czech Republic in his own words.
He's cut a deal with Da Capo Press to publish his currently untitled memoir. It will emphasize the past year of his life, during which Blythe was acquitted of causing a 19-year-old fan's death when he pushed the fan off the stage during a 2010 concert in Prague.
Blythe says he's dreamed of being an author, but he never imagined his first book would center around such a sad topic. However, he says he feels the story needs to be told. The book will come out next spring.
