As posted on the bands official website:

"One week ago Alexi had the worst luck. He tripped at a bowling alley and his shoulder was hurt. Something is broken but it's not serious like the accident two years ago. He has to be careful because the shoulder will be sensitive for a while. 6 weeks of no guitar playing - doctor's orders. This means all the activities planned to happen within the next 5 weeks have to be cancelled. We can have a break from rehearsals but what breaks our hearts is that we are not able to perform in Desert Rock (Dubai, U.A.E.) in March 2007. That festival was something we were looking forward to but it just can't happen.

There's nothing we can do about this!"

Worst luck? He was obviously drunk as always...
iaberis - 07.02.2007 at 17:34  
Why don't they hire a tour musician???
Carrion - 07.02.2007 at 17:35  
Perhaps 'cause we're talking about Laiho here, the guy who wants to do all solos and isn't one of the best live singers

That would be like replacing Bruce Dickinson? I'd rather miss the band than see it with a "hired tour musician".
SETHULHU - 07.02.2007 at 18:30  
oki no offense to cob, but i kind of feel a bit better for not able to go see the desert rock AGAIN this year :@ .. but i do hope this master takes it easy from now on. lol ...

Because that's the most stupid idea ever? Alexi is both singer and lead guitarist if you didn't knew that. So it's quite supid to hire a tour musician >_<
iaberis - 07.02.2007 at 18:59  
I mean why don't they hire a tour guitarist. The man broke his arm. He still can sing...
Guitarist are always replaceable...
Soliloquy - 07.02.2007 at 19:18  
that blows. just when i was getting into CoB, the fucker broke his sholder.

but 6 weeks of no guitar? i can barley live an hour without my guitar!
AncientOrigins - 07.02.2007 at 19:24  
6 weeks without guitar? Well, maybe he'll be able to think more about coherent songwriting now
Jay - 07.02.2007 at 19:33  
stupid drunk...
wonder what he's gonna do next six weeks
brutal_name - 07.02.2007 at 19:42  
i agree, they can just get a tour guitarist for that festival, and he can still sing, its not exactly shoulder intensive. When i saw him live the guy didn't even move.
GodOfBodoM - 07.02.2007 at 20:11  
Shits happend
MeGaDeTh_fReAk - 07.02.2007 at 20:34  
oh welll damn!!...hope e gets better soon!
kaos666 - 07.02.2007 at 20:43  
What ever happened to that new Sinergy album? I recall that was put off because of a Laiho injury and we are still waiting for it. Seems like he gets injured always when something important is coming up!
Katatronik - 07.02.2007 at 21:20  
Hope he gets better soon... But he's always drunk and I think this time was drunk too ha ha! That's rock and roll
Little Death - 07.02.2007 at 21:38  
Poor Alexi! He always does everything stupid. I'm sure he was drunk. I hope he gets better soon.
dancingdecember - 07.02.2007 at 22:03  
you go to cob concert to see alexi doing solos and doing a show on stage.not i dont know "john brown" playing solos and doing the show.so you know that is the worst idea in this universe.
Sunioj - 07.02.2007 at 22:03  
Geez I feel sorry for the people that were going to see them in Dubai, what a letdown....how often do bands come there, like once a year?

Haha, maybe hes trying to hurt himself on purpose. He cant take the pressure!! His guitar playing has a mind of its own!!
Nefaglar - 07.02.2007 at 22:14  
Dummass... If I was a guitar player of a Tour Band I'll do the best to take care of myself..
But he's drunk as always

Escapist - 07.02.2007 at 23:08  
Also Tommi Sartanen from Twilightning had this problem, and he was replaced by a Freak Kitchen member I think... These things happen.

I concur, when I saw Children of Bodom, he just stood there. I spent most of the time watching the keyboardist.... Now he is amazing to watch, not like those other sissy keyboardist that just program everything, he plays everything at blinding speed, much cooler than some midget guitar player standing on the spot....

In conclusion, a tour musician playing guitar would just be fine...

poo poo!
Xtreme Jax - 08.02.2007 at 01:55  
Bets are now open on whether he was drunk or not. Odds are in favour of drunk.

To bad hes going to miss the Desert Rock in Dubia, friend was realy looking forward to seeing them after I just got her into them.

This actually brought back memories of drunk bowling actually
spirit_inblack - 08.02.2007 at 02:36  
meh, figures, he was probably drunk
dancingdecember - 08.02.2007 at 04:22  
i dont even like cob's image and i would watch keyboard player too along with alexi(if you go there and watch only the keyboard player you are not being "mature" you are missing hell of a guitar player!!)but that doesnt change the fact that people going there to watch alexi performing with the band.like him or not cob without alexi standing with his guitar missing its all image(which i think is became cheesy)and people would prefer the concert to be postponed instead of some hastily played show.and his vocals are not very good i think so if he is not playing they can all stay at home for all i care...but if its your only chance to see cob in this lifetime you can agree with it i guess
Princ_Of_Horror - 08.02.2007 at 08:52  
Ah..nothing new for Alexi..Hopefully next time He wont be able to play the guitar for good!! That whole band is fuc*** so Im happy that he wounded himself again..it makes me laugh!
GT - 08.02.2007 at 10:46  
Tripping in a bowling alley...that's so metal Sucks that they have to cancel shows
Elijah - 08.02.2007 at 11:43

MeGaDeTh_fReAk - 08.02.2007 at 17:54

Darlin' little Alexi...can he go a couple of months without breaking something?

And ehm...Courtney Love looks like a cucumber that got pissed on by twelve dogs and a fox.
Alexi looks cute........most of the time
HeathenBlood - 10.02.2007 at 08:14  
He is the victim of most common accidents.
lordz - 10.02.2007 at 12:33  
THat sucks I was so looking forward to see them in D.R. ..!!!
Daru Jericho - 11.02.2007 at 05:56  
Sucks to those who miss out. Really, someone should look after Alexi when he's drunk. That's what people do to me. But maybe Alexi needs one when he's sober too.
Sunioj - 11.02.2007 at 20:00  
I bet he really didnt a give a shit either that he wasnt coming though...Alexi sounds very egocentric from what he sounds like..ah well, his "rock star" fame will be his own downfall sometime....

LOL! I like CoB but that was funny. come to think of it, your pretty right.
The Captain - 12.03.2007 at 18:37  
I love COB to death and I love how shit like this happens. Tripping in a bowling alley!?!? Drunk maybe? of course he was. I think this is quite humorous. I wish that if I tripped and got hurt at a bowling alley that people would talk about it for a while.

Laiho plays bowling? No good for a metal musician's image... Why not bingo or Scrabble while we're at it?
wormdrink414 - 23.07.2009 at 05:31  
Fuck. Yet another excuse for making shitty music.

This is offensive. CoB officially sold out when Are You Dead Yet? was released. What happened to the band that made Hatebreeder?
