A whole week ago, we reported that Children Of Bodom singer/guitarist Alexi Laiho was continuing fronting the band’s US tour despite falling out of his bunk on the bus and breaking his shoulder. Ouch.
They’ve cancelled the rest of their dates now.
Notorious boozehound, Laiho said:
“After the New York show (May 9) I knew it was going to be over. During the 3rd song I started feeling like someone was stabbing me in my lungs, my heart and my ribs. That was the kind of pain that stubbornness, painkillers, nor alcohol could alleviate.”
Quite. The Finnish mentalist goes on to say:
“I was basically told that I could f*ck myself up for life if I didn’t stop playing… I have played and sang for the last 10 days in violent pain which has only made my condition worsen. So, I decided to listen to everyone around me, who was telling me the best thing to do would be to go home and get some proper rest and give my shoulder some time to heal.”
We think it’s wise. We’d quite like the crazy fools to come back to the UK and play some metal.
