Children Of Bodom's Alexi Laiho Reveals Fleetwood Mac Inspiration

(TeamRock Radio) Children Of Bodom singer and guitarist Alexi Laiho says he's trying to improve his playing style - by copying Fleetwood Mac mainman Lindsey Buckingham. Laiho's been playing since he was 12 years old but reports that he still manages to find new ways to challenge himself.

He tells Music Radar: "This might surprise some people, but I've been on a huge Lindsey Buckingham trip recently and listening to his playing in Fleetwood Mac.

"I always thought there were two guitar players playing together, but it was just him doing all that Travis picking stuff. That's how good he is. I thought, 'You f***in' a**hole, how is that possible?'

"So that's actually something I'm working on right now and it's hard - like a whole different sport. In many ways, it was the same drive I felt when I first saw someone sweep picking - I had no choice but to try and master it. If you keep your eyes open and observe, there's always something out there to learn." Read more here.
