While Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe is back home in America after five weeks in prison in the Czech Republic, his legal problems are far from over. Manslaughter charges are still hanging over Blythe and at some point over the next few months he will have to return to Prague and stand trial.

Faced with continuing massive legal bills, Lamb of God has decided to create an eBay auction of equipment and memorabilia to raise money for Randy’s legal bills. All equipment was either used on tour or in the recording studio or in a video. The auction features items provided by all five members of Lamb of God.

In addition, a number of musicians have offered equipment to be used in the auction. Guitars have been donated by Machine Head’s Robb Flynn and Phil Demmel as well as Slash and Five Finger Death Punch. Megadeth’s David Ellefson and Five Finger Death Punch’s Chris Kael have each contributed a bass and the members of Five Finger Death Punch also have contributed a signed skateboard. The various auctions can all be found at this location.

Justice Now, the site set up for donations, will remain open for those wishing to donate to Randy’s defense fund. The band appreciates all of the support Randy has received since his arrest on June 28th and is thankful for all of the donations that have been made in these tough economic times. As stated before, without the fans, there is no Lamb of God.

So.. they're auctioning all those instruments, full of memories, almost unpayable to some random guys for an amount of money that doesn't even cover the amount of bail a little bit. That's firendship, wow..

What's more interesting to me: When he gets found not guilty on the second court hearing, will he get the money back? Because he's found to be innocent then.. you know? Like.. innocent, mistake by the government/law enforcers, not his mistake, so no need to put him into jail in any case.

If you think that musicians make tons of money, then you are pretty ignorant. Most make very little, unless they get tons of radio play.

There is no money in CD/iTunes or touring....only in merchandising. Unless they put their name on everything, the returns are pretty low.

As for LOG, I doubt that any of them are wealthy. They make enough to live on and continue playing music, but aren't making millions per year. I'd be they make $75k or less after paying for management, lawyers, and studio loans.

Don't kid yourself...these guys aren't Kanye. They aren't making that kind of money.

I know the guy! As well as David and Slash. I mean, everyone knows them. To be honest I could thank Randy about this since these guys won’t give up their guitar easily and for an auction event this will be my first!
