Alex Skolnick

A versatile guitarist best known for speed and precision, Alex Skolnick first came to the attention of guitar fans worldwide in the mid-'80s as a member of thrash metallists Testament. He went on to establish himself in the realm of nuanced jazz fusion with the Alex Skolnick Trio. An on-again, off-again member of Testament for over three decades, Skolnick maintained a high profile outside of his metal group and his jazz trio, collaborating with acts including Ozzy Osbourne, Les Claypool, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
