ELEVEN THINGS YOU MAY NOT HAVE KNOWN ABOUT CHILDREN OF BODOM’S ALEXI LAIHO
So MetalSucks Mega-Maniac Shinaain tried to send us this video earlier in the week, but it had been taken off of YouTube. She was good enough to tell us when it magically re-appeared; apparently, some people didn’t like the way it was edited originally (there’s now an alternate version here), and objected to its original title, “Eleven Things You Didn’t Know About” blah blah blah, because Bodom’s hardcore fans (Hate Crew Deathrollers, or whatever they’re called) knew a lot of this stuff already.
But if you’re like me, and you’re a Bodom fan but you haven’t been hanging on Laiho’s every word for the past thirteen years, this is pretty fun. Hey, my first guitar was a Strat, too! And I was eleven years old when I got it, also! Alexi and I have so much in common. Besides my total lack of musical talent, I mean. But still!!! Maybe we can be besties.
