Randy Blythe’s (Lamb Of God) Grammy Medallion Is Being Auctioned Off Again

Back in 2007, Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe auctioned off his Grammy medallion for “Redneck” to help raise money for Myotonic Dystrophy research. The singer did the good deed after his friend Todd Stone’s children were diagnosed with the disease. It was then purchased by D. Gerawan, who was generous enough to gift it to Stone’s kids. Now, Stone has put the item back on eBay in an effort to raise money for Blythe’s sister-in-law, who is currently battling cancer.

Blythe said the following:

“Years ago, I auctioned off my first Grammy medallion (the one for “Redneck”) to benefit Myontonic Muscular Dystrophy research, a disease my friend @toddbstone’s two sons had been diagnosed with. 11 years later, Todd is auctioning it back off to benefit my sister-in-law Bianca’s GoFundMe to help pay for her breast cancer treatment. – what an amazing dude you are, Todd!”

Stone also commented:

“Bid on this Lamb Of God memorabilia and do some good! This original Grammy Nomination Medallion was the first awarded to Lamb Of God’s lead vocalist, Randy Blythe, for the 49th Annual Grammy Awards in 2006 in the category of “Best Metal Performance.” Crafted by Tiffany & Co., this beautiful bronze medallion has great karma.

In 2007, Randy auctioned this Grammy medallion to raise money for Myotonic Dystrophy research, with which my children had recently been diagnosed. In the final seconds of the Ebay auction, “D. Gerawan; Fresno, California” swept in with double the prior bid to win the item. Despite being a Lamb of God fan, Mr. Gerawan gave the item back to my kids.

I told Randy what Gerawan had done and he called Mr. Gerawan to express his gratitude. Months later when Lamb of God was on tour in California, Randy contacted Gerawan again and invited him to be his guest at their show and to meet the other band members on the tour bus. This original medallion has since been professionally framed & matted.

Now I’m auctioning it to raise money for Randy’s “sister” (his brother’s wife) who was recently diagnosed with cancer. The proceeds will go to help Randy’s sister with the enormous medical expenses her family faces via her GoFundMe page.”
