Lamb of God guitarist sitting out European shows

Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton will miss part (if not all all) of the band's current European tour due to a family emergency. Thus far, Paul Waggoner of Between The Buried And Me has been filling in. Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe had the following to say last night to during their show in Vienna, Austria (video below): "You may have noticed Mr. Mark Morton is not here with us tonight. He had a family emergency, so he had to stay home. It's family first for this band. We apologize, but he had to be with his family. Luckly, we have a very big music family, so we've got our friend Paul Waggoner from Between The Buried And Me."
