Interviewed on January 27, 1998 by EvilG
As most already know Alex was lead guitarist for Testament from 1987’s ‘The Legacy’ until 1992’s ‘The Ritual.’ During this period Alex was an inspiration to many a guitar player. His technical ability was without question amazing. Reports said that Alex had tired of Testament’s musical direction. According to the band, when Alex left they felt as if a weight had been taken off of their shoulders for now they could pursue much heavier music.
Following Alex’s departure he joined Savatage and appeared on their CD “Handful of Rain” and a live EP. Concurrently he was part of a jazz/rock project with bass soloist Stuart Hamm. This takes us up until the mid-nineties.
So where has Alex been? Fortunately I was given the opportunity to get an update from Alex himself on his years with Testament and his new project Skol-Patrol…here it is, enjoy.
