Alex Skolnick: "10 Things Your Favorite Musician Won't Tell You"

Testament er lige på trapperne med en dobbelt live udgivelse, "Dark Roots of Thrash". I mellemtiden fordriver bandets leadguitarist, Alex Skolnick, tiden med hans fritidsprojekt, jazz bandet: Alex Skolnick Trio. I øjeblikket spiller de koncerter på de britiske øer, og afslutter i morgen en mindre turné med en koncert i London.

På Alex Skolnicks blog kan man følge stort og småt fra guitaristen. Blandt andet er der en tankevækkende og underholdende artikel: "10 Things Your Favorite Musician Won't Tell You".

Her får særligt skandinaviske fans en bredside med på vejen, i punkt 9 om berusede fans der opsøger en musiker:

"...but it seems that Europe (Scandinavia in particular), suffers from an epidemic of fans who go to shows, drink all day long and end up barely coherent - slurring, mumbling, repeating themselves, talking over others and when we meet, engaging in "conversations" like this:

Drunk fan: "You (hiccup) are the greatest!"

Artist: "Thank you. It's nice to meet.."

Drunk fan: (Louder) "NO. I mean it. YOU... are... the... greatest (hiccup)"

Artist "That's very kind. I appreciate..."

Drunk fan: (Yelling, causing heads to turn) "YOU don't UNDERSTAND!! (hiccup) I.. (hiccup) MEAN it!! YOU... are... the GREATEST!! (hiccup)"
