CHILDREN OF BODOM Frontman ALEXI LAIHO - "My Collar Bone Had Been Broken For About 10 Years"
June 26, 2019, 3 years ago
During a new fan-submitted Q&A session hosted by Guitar World, Children Of Bodom leader Alexi Laiho was asked, what’s the most technically demanding guitar solo you’ve ever performed?
Laiho replied, "Wow, that’s quite a question. Probably a lot of the older stuff where some of the solos I was writing were insanely fast arpeggios and picking. Everything seems hard right now as I had a massive shoulder operation about two years ago. Apparently, my collar bone had been broken for about 10 years. I’ve had to relearn how to play. It’s not a nerve problem, but some of my fingers are not up to speed on a lot of things. It’s a slow process; I’m still not quite back to where I was before the operation."
