Machine Head’s Robb Flynn Rips Children of Bodom Fans and Frontman Alexi Laiho
Last month, Machine Head announced the postponement of their North American tour with Children of Bodom, so they could focus on finishing up their upcoming album ‘Bloodstone & Diamonds.’ Shortly after the announcement, COB frontman Alexi Laiho took to his Facebook page to vent about how unhappy he was to learn of the tour cancellation, adding that he was inspired to write “some angry s—t,”and apologizing for letting their fans down.
Apparently Children of Bodom fans have been vocal about their displeasure of the postponed tour, as well, and Machine Head’s Robb Flynn has slammed COB’s fans and the band’s frontman for his "little bitch ass response" and the backlash.
Flynn took to Machine Head’s Facebook page and wrote a lengthy post. “The Children of Bodom ‘Hate Crew’ has been out in full force in light of the US tour being re-scheduled." He continued, "It’s typical s--- talking, albeit a ton of it to the actual Machine Head fans saying ‘how much better Bodom are than Machine Head’ and how ‘Bodom should've been headlining over Machine Head’, and ‘f--- Machine Head.’”
The Machine Head leader then ripped COB frontman Alexi Laiho’s response to the tour postponement. “However, most people usually need the motivation to act like fools and Alexi’s little bitch-ass response certainly got the ‘Hate Crew’ fired up.” He added, “Hate Crew?… pffffft!… more like “Alexi-ain’t-that-Great-Crew!”, more like, “bought-a-ticket-too-Late-Crew!”, more like, “It’s-not-my-fault-you’re-a-virgin-and-can’t-get-a-Date-Crew!!
The Machine Head guitarist and singer added, “For every person that complains about the tour getting canceled the Head Cases are like ‘shut the f--- up, life goes on, M F’n H to the death!!!’ So for every one of those people, I thank you very much. Truly, from the bottom of my heart, I appreciate the fact that you do that. Because s--t does happen and sometimes life doesn't go the way you want it to.”
