CHILDREN OF BODOM's Alexi Laiho Still Hospitalized With "Serious Infection"
Yesterday, we reported that Children of Bodom guitarist Alexi Laiho had checked into a hospital after suffering from severe stomach pains. Initally, the band thought he would be released today, but it looks like that's not happening after the Bodom frontman suffered what the rest of the band is saying is a serious infection. Here is the latest update from the guys:
"This is not an easy letter for us to write. Alexi is suffering from a serious infection. He is still in hospital in Oslo under supervision of the doctors and we don't know yet when they will release him.
"We have no choice other than canceling Ruisrock in Turku on Saturday as well. This is a very bitter pill for us to swallow. We had decided to do only two festivals in our homeland this summer to make it real special, and now this.
"We hope that we will be able to make up for this very soon. To all our fans who had been looking forward to rock with us at Ruisrock this weekend, take our apologies and enjoy the festival. In our spirits, we will be there, too."
Our best wishes to Laiho on a speedy recovery.
