Lamb of God Frontman Randy Blythe Was So Touched To Find A Solitary Fan Waiting Him For Him At The Airport After Flying Back From His Prison Ordeal In The Czech Republic, He Took The Woman Out For A Coffee To Say Thank You.
The rocker was jailed in the eastern European country in 2012 after he was charged with manslaughter in connection with the death of a Lamb of God fan at a gig in Prague in 2010.
He was later released on bail and jetted back to his native U.S. where he was greeted by a devotee named Lia, who spent hours waiting for him at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Blythe, who was later acquitted of the charge following a trial, admits he was overwhelmed to see a fan as he returned to his homeland.
In an excerpt from his upcoming book Dark Days, he writes, "I made my way directly to the terminal's exit to stand on American soil (or at least New York City concrete), for the first time in months. As I moved with the crowd past the last security checkpoint, I heard a female voice call my name. I turned and saw an attractive dark haired young woman standing by the exit. 'Randy, I just wanted you to know I'm glad you're home,' she said, and gave me a hug.
"Lia had read on the Internet that I had been released from prison... and had decided to come and take a chance that she would see me in arrivals. After waiting a few fruitless hours she was about to leave, but decided to take a chance on one more flight.
"Lia was not a stalker or a weirdo; she just felt that someone should be there to welcome me back to America, and after doing so told me she would be on her way. I was deeply touched by her warm gesture, and asked her if she would stay and have a coffee with me."
Blythe's memoir is due for release this month (Jul15).
