Dark Days: A Memoir by D. Randall BlytheIn 2010, a nineteen-year-old super-fan rushed the stage during a Lamb of God concert in Prague. To protect himself, singer Randy Blythe pushed the fan away. Unbeknownst to Blythe, the young man hit his head on the floor when he fell and later died from the injury. Blythe was promptly incarcerated on charges carrying a prison term of five to ten years. Thirty-seven days later, he was released on bail to await trial. Although legal experts told him not to return to the Czech Republic to face the charges, Blythe explained that he “could not run away from this problem while the grieving family of a dead young man searched hopelessly for answers that [he] might help provide.”
After a five-day trial, he was acquitted on March 5, 2013.
In Dark Days, Blythe tells the story of his incarceration and the wild life that led up to it. As he explains, “Most substance abuse books end with the author getting sober. My book starts there.”

Dark Days: A Memoir
This is the final version of the cover of my first book, Dark Days, designed by P. There are several differences between the final version and the working cover that was and as of this writing still is up on amazon. And the book selling business seems to have gone the way of the record business: preorders are of prime importance in determining how much coverage and thus placement in retail outlets, leading to increased total sales the book gets. The working cover was fine as a place holder, but I am pleased my management suggested P. I dig his aesthetic, and I think he did a good job.
