Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe is working with Oscar-winning actor Billy Bob Thornton and rock photographer Rob Fenn on a music-themed documentary movie.

Entitled You, Me And A ’63, it’s co-written by the trio, narrated by Thornton and follows Fenn on a journey along the iconic US Route 66 highway.

Fenn says: “This film will not only star Marilyn, my 1963 Ford Thunderbird, and myself – but it will be narrated by Billy Bob Thornton.

“So many wonderful and talented people are involved in this film. Another special part is that it’s written by Billy Bob Thornton, Randy Blythe and myself. Imagine what will happen with those three creative minds spewing all over a page!”

Blythe releases his autobiography Dark Days last year, and he’s since revealed he’s working on a science fiction novel. He told Metal Hammer: “I’m a decent writer. I’ve spent my entire life reading good literature, and I’m able to tell a story. If I wasn’t a good writer I would still struggle to become one.”

Lamb Of God are gearing up for a North American tour with Clutch and Corrosion Of Conformity.

Martin Kielty

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
