Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe is set to lift the lid on his dramatic manslaughter trial and prison stint in a tell-all autobiography. The book will detail the singer's ordeal in a Czech Republic prison and his subsequent acquittal after he was accused of causing a fan's death by pushing him off stage during a gig in Prague in 2010. Blythe's case made headlines around the world, and his explosive account of the details has been snapped up by publishers at Da Capo Press. He says in a statement, "While I've dreamed of being a published author almost since I began to read, I never imagined my first book would center around such a sad topic. Sometimes though, life unexpectedly provides you a story that needs to be told. I believe this one does... so I will tell it with the respect and dignity all involved deserve. This will be a good read, I promise you, and I hope some good comes of it." Blythe was arrested in Prague in 2012 and spent three months in prison before he was cleared of manslaughter at a trial earlier this year (13). The verdict was upheld last month (Jun13) by Prague's High Court. The currently untitled book is due for release in spring 2014.
