I don’t know about you, but I have never, ever understood the appeal of Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It’s like metal for people who hate metal, which means people like me who love metal think its like the musical equivalent of when a pubic hair curls its way into your dick hole. Its Christmas metal. I’d rather make love to a tube sock filled with jelly fish than go see one of TSO’s shows.
Well, Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick, I guess, was playing with Trans-Siberian Orchestra for, like, a decade? I had no clue. Guess I just try to block out all things Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Anyways, Alex has other things going on, and has no time for “the spotlight (and lasers, fog, fire and snow).” So, he’s bouncing.
Skolnick says his Alex Skolnick Trio has a new album to release and tour behind this winter with Rodrigo Y Gabriela.
“There are many other endeavors in the works, the information of which will be continually updated online at AlexSkolnick.com. Furthermore, as someone who has been on tour with multiple projects and running on all cylinders during the entire calendar year since 2006, reclaiming this three-month period will open up the option to take breaks once in a while, remember what home looks like, lessen the constant separation from friends and loved ones and recharge my own batteries as needed,” Skolnick says. “Of course, I’ll miss doing the Trans-Siberian Orchestra tour. The stage time, friendships and overall experience has been invaluable.”
