Alex Skolnick: People Thought I Was Crazy

Alex Skolnick: People Thought I Was Crazy

Ep. 63

Alex Skolnick (Testament / Alex Skolnick Trio / Trans-Siberian Orchestra) is back for round two with Benny, Siobhán and Cory. This episode we dive into how a desire to improvise factored into Alex's transition into the world of Jazz, how some fans reacted rather passionately to his decision and how he got into writing for guitar publications as well as authoring his own book. We also talk a bit more about his contributions to Lost Symphony and hear his thoughts on the project in general.
