Groove Metal Star Victim of Cowardly Assault Before Dublin Gig Last Night

Groove Metal Star Victim of Cowardly Assault Before Dublin Gig Last Night

"Sometimes doing what you love comes at a price" wrote Randy Blyth last night in the dramatic description of his Instagram post. There he detailed his assault at the hands of a gang of street youths along the quays near Dublin City Centre.

Blyth, in Dublin for a gig where his band Lamb of God were supporting Megadeth, was strolling near his hotel taking a few snaps of bridges and landmarks when he noticed a gang of around 6 youths approaching him. Before he could get somewhere safe he found himself on the ground, having been struck on the back of the head. Luckily a taxi driver pulled up and beeped his horn at the cowardly gang, which caused them to run away.

Thankfully Blyth escaped with only a bad headache and some superficial injuries, although he had to survive without his glasses for the rest of his trip (presumably broken when he was hit) and had both his cap and e-cigarette robbed. The good news, he got some nice pictures and the gig went ahead so the fans weren't disappointed.


He signed off by saying,

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

I'm not sure about the legality of neutering and spaying children but he's right; he could have been seriously injured or worse.
