So, it seems Lamb of God has a fan in Michael C. Hall, also known as the actor who played “Dexter.”
But the question is: Does Randy Blythe like “Dexter?”
It seems he doesn’t.
Hall attended Lamb Of God’s recent Los Angeles show and was backstage. According to Blythe’s Instagram, in which he recalled the situation.
“Ben, my bad-ass editor over at Da Capo/Perseus (publishing company that’s putting out my book in North America) was coming to the show & asked if it was cool for a plus one on the list, as he wanted to bring a friend. Sure, no problem — he came to the bus before the show & introduced his old college buddy Mike, & we sat & shot the shit for a half hour or so.”
But Blythe had no idea who Hall was. Guess Randy was never a fan of “Six Feet Under” either.
“I thought maybe Mike was his editorial assistant at Da Capo or something — he was a super chill dude. Then I noticed A LOT of people started getting on & off our bus, more than normal. Then our video guy Doug asked Mike for a picture, like ‘My wife will kill me if I don’t get a photo with you’ — Mike said sure. Doug left & I was like ‘Bro, who ARE you?’”
Randy claims he “thought maybe he was some sort of rockstar editor I didn’t know about (are there such things?)”
Dude…you’re looking at one!
Blythe also thought he was “maybe in porn or something.”
“He just looked at me & was like ‘I’m an actor, I was on a TV show called Dexter & another one called Six Feet Under’ I said ‘Oh, that’s cool. I don’t watch TV. I’m sorry I don’t know your show.’ Then I realized that I was saying EXACTLY to him what people who don’t know my band say: ‘Oh, I’m sorry I’ve never heard of you’ — IT’S OK! NOT EVERYONE IS A METALHEAD! So I said ‘Wait dude, I’m NOT sorry I don’t watch TV, but it’s really nice to meet you’ & then we just kicked it with all our other guests until we played. Mike was mad chill.”
Mike watched the whole show, and probably dug Killswitch Engage, too.
“I won’t start watching tv, but I will go see his new movie I looked up about a murder in the Beat scene called ‘Kill Your Darlings.’ Anyways, nice guy, & he took a pretty good portrait.”
