Lamb of God has released a new song “The Duke” that is dedicated to Wayne Ford, a fan of the band who vocalist Randy Blythe met when he had a terminal case of Leukemia. Blythe became close with Ford in the months and weeks leading up to his passing. He released a heartbreaking account of his time getting to know Wayne Ford earlier this week.

“He was just a really inspiring guy to talk to in the way he handled everything. He was just very levelheaded. You hear about people in their old age, when they get accepting of their mortality, that’s kind of natural. This is what that dude went through at age 33, and from talking to his family and his wife, it wasn’t like it was a show he was putting on for the singer of his favorite band like “I am Mr. Calm Guy.” That’s just the way he was. So it was very impressive to me. I learned a lot. I was like, “Man, this guy has some dignity. I can only hope I have half of that when it comes to my time.” Blythe told Rolling Stone.

In honor of a charity campaign set up by Lamb of God, the band is auctioning off their gold record to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

“I wouldn’t have that gold record if it wasn’t for dudes like Wayne. I know that he would be pleased that that is going to go to another fan of the band. It will raise some money, and it kind of stays within the circle; it’s in the family. And it feels really good to me. It feels much better to me than for me to have a gold record sit on my wall and go, “Wow, that was a great record we made.” It’s doing some good.”
