Alex Skolnick is a jazz and metal guitarist. He's a member of the thrash metal band Testament from its formation in San Francisco in 1983 until his left the band in 1992. Alex joined the band Savatage for the recording of Handful of Rain, as well as its follow-up live album and home video release Japan Live '94.
