CHILDREN OF BODOM guitarist/vocalist Alexi Laiho joined the cover band LIPLOK on stage this past Friday night (January 8) at Z's Cafe in New Haven, Connecticut to perform a few cover songs, including GUNS N' ROSES' "Sweet Child O' Mine" and METALLICA's "Enter Sandman".
Laiho attended the show with John McCarthy of Rock House, the leader in music instruction, after spending the day working on Alexi's forthcoming instructional DVD.
LIPLOK features Kevin Lawless on vocals, Glenn Celentano on bass, Geoff Permisson on drums and Mike Winters guesting on bass for "Sweet Child O Mine".

Alexi has his own signature Model ESP guitar, has appeared on more than 50 magazine covers around the world, has made Guitar World's list of the top 100 metal guitarist of all time in 2004, and has appeared on the cover of Guitar World in January 2005 with Steve Vai and Zakk Wylde, which — along with his mastery of the guitar — have propelled him into one of today's most noted guitar players.
