That's too bad for Bodom. Gotta hand it to him though, that's a hell of a blow to take for a guitarist. I didn't play guitar for a week because I sliced my pinky open on my fretting hand. Can't imagine a busted shoulder though.

I feel for him, it must've been a tough decision to decide to carrying on playing with a busted shoulder and then to have to decide to drop off the tour completely. I hope he recovers and can play properly still.

*shrugs* broken shoulder or not it doesn't justify the lack of Bodom there has been on the band's last two albums.

I went to the NYC show, in which Bodom played 3 songs, before ending their set. I was extremely disappointed, due to the fact that Bodom was the only real reason I wanted to go to the concert, Lamb Of God and Bodom have toured before, and are good friends, i'm sure their relationship is undamaged. I wish band members would be more careful, and less reckless because their fans suffer the price of concert tickets, for a lackidasical performance. Nonetheless, ill go to the next Bodom concert.

I was at Roseland on Friday. Alexi was obviously in so much pain. Was interesting to hear Silent Night Bodom night without him singing or playing for a few minutes. He ended up tossing his guitar off his shoulders and probably broke it in the process. He looked mad as hell at himself and I feel terrible for him. The crowd was pretty p***ed but everyone seemed to understand after a while.

What did piss everyone off was when the goddamn As I Lay Dying crew took a full hour to set up after Bodom's stuff was cleared. As if they were trying to use up Bodom's set time by making all of us amped up and po'ed Bodom fans stand around like a buncha a$$holes.

No, but I will!

slipknotbullet666 = dumb sh** or a troll? You decide. Read his profile and laugh, for those of you who find the concept of "maggot" retarted, and for those who scoff at false metal.

Alexi is a f***ing soldier! Playing for 2 weeks after a doctor tells you No and you find out you have internetal bleeding?! Alexi is a killer musician and a good man to play for 2 more f***ing weeks despite his obviously severe injury. I should be p***ed if anyone! They dropped off the bill within the last 12 hours. I'm heading to Baltimore for the show tonight! So no more b****ing about him not playing. I bet you couldn't do jack sh** with a busted shoulder and internal bleeding. Quit b****ing you idiots.

A lot of people hating on CoB, they are one of the good bands on the tour guys. Only good thing about this is maybe God Forbid will get a longer set.

Awesome! i hoped they would dropout, not because I don't like them I already saw this tour and Bodom, Lamb of God and Municipal Waste were f***ing amazing but thing about broken bones is....if you don't treat them properly and have them in a REAL cast ( not just a sling...when you're not on stage =p) then they heal wrong and it would be a shame if his arm/shoulder healed incorrectly and he was unable to play guitar anymore....I mean...what else would he do?!! =p
