Lamb of God Guitarist Willie Adler Offers ‘Thoughts and Prayers’ to Baroness
Lamb of God guitarist Willie Adler’s heavy metal heart goes out to the guys of Baroness, who were involved in a horrific road accident on Wednesday (Aug. 15) in England. Baroness were heading to Southampton, England, following a gig in Bristol the night before, when the incident took place.
Adler is no stranger to rough situations in foreign countries. After all, Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe was recently arrested in the Czech Republic on manslaughter charges stemming from an alleged 2010 concert incident, and he was stuck in a Czech prison for five weeks.
Adler took to his official Facebook page to offer up his well wishes and prayers to Baroness’ band members:
I want to send all my love and prayers to our brothers in Baroness. What they have endured is one of my greatest fears of touring. To be in that situation has to be extremely harrowing. I can only hope that their recovery is speedy and their trauma is short lived. Again, all my thoughts and prayers are with Baroness, their crew and their families. I feel that I can speak on be-half of all of the Lamb family when I say, we love you, and are all praying for you. We can’t wait to be back out on the road with you guys doing what we do best.
Baroness’ tour bus apparently plunged for 30 feet over a viaduct after crashing through a security barrier in a heavy rainstorm. Nine people, including the four members of Baroness, were taken to the hospital, and two of the passengers have serious injuries. For now, all of Baroness’ upcoming tour dates have been postponed.
