These days, I’ve had to write a bunch of shitty Lamb of God headlines — specifically, those related to frontman Randy Blythe’s ongoing and seemingly unjustified detention in Prague, even after paying nearly half-a-million in bail.
Today, I’m instead going to write a positive story about Lamb of God — specifically, the band’s drummer, Chris Adler, who is the subject of our ongoing Adler Chatter column.
Anyways, Chris has been honored by several drum publications for his skills behind the kit.
Drum Magazine has named Adler the best metal drummer.
Not only that, but Modern Drummer also honored Chris as the top metal drummer and top clinician and educator.
Fucking A, dude…that’s awesome.
We’re hoping we can run another Adler Chatter soon. And we will. But for now, until this crap with Randy blows over, we can’t. It’s complicated.
Anyways, there is more good news to report today.
According to our pals at The Gauntlet, the Czech media has apparently stopped calling Randy “The American Murderer” in its reports, now instead calling Blythe “The Accused.”
That’s at least an improvement in verbiage.
