Alex Skolnick  Guitarist, Writer, World traveller. All pics by yours truly (except the ones I'm in, shares etc) via iPhone

Coming out of 48hr post tour rest/hibernation, catching up on news, difficult 2 process. Thoughts 4 the great city of #Manchester & hopes more can be done 2 keep all concerts safe. Be careful out there, everyone. And please if you wish to comment: no finger-pointing/demonizing/politicizing, especially towards ethnicity, religions, etc. This is not the time, nor place and we are better than that (at least we must aspire to be if we're going to rise above situations like this).

Last night of tour! This one's been a real blast, thanks 2 #Sepultura, #Prong (+ on select shows: #DyingGorgeousLies & #TheConvalescence). One final stop before heading home to Brooklyn...OF COURSE, Brooklyn Bowl (in Las Vegas. Impressive venue best of the BBowls yet) Imagine all these acts together? Would make a heck of an interesting festival @bbowlvegas

Very Proud of our latest issue @unbuiltmag ! Details: ORDERS for UNBUILT magazine’s Issue 03 are now LIVE via the link in our bio!

Limited to just 250 signed, hand-numbered copies worldwide, Issue 03 is now available exclusively at the Man Alive Creative online store. Shipping begins Friday, June 2nd. •
Each and every copy of Issue 03 is signed by D. Randall Blythe, Alex Skolnick, Alissa White-Gluz, and Tom Bejgrowicz while also being hand-numbered out of an edition of 250. As a very special bonus, issues #1-100 are signed by none other than legendary musician/radio personality, Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue, Sixx AM). Additionally, the cover features a photograph taken by Blythe and is strikingly printed in white ink on the cover’s black paper. The issue’s unique offset cover and interior page dimensions give Issue 03 a unique look and feel when reading it.

Issue 03 includes interviews about photography and sobriety with Nikki Sixx, celebrity culture with author Timothy Caulfield PhD, the future of food with the staff at the innovative Impossible Foods, the plight of orangutans in the palm oil conflict with the Communication Manager at the Centre for Orangutan Protection in Indonesia, and a discussion about the influence and legacy of the Misfits’ artwork with the creative team at House Industries.

Further, Blythe delivers a scathingly-wonderful photo essay about his time spent on an all-inclusive resort in Mexico, Skolnick pens a short, engaging piece on the relationship between Jews and heavy metal, and artwork from our featured “Works Of Art” artist, Wayne White (“Pee Wee’s Playhouse,” Smashing Pumpkins’ “Tonight, Tonight,” Peter Gabriel’s “Big Time”).

#TBT Never met Chris but had a really nice hang w Kim who was at our 2016 Seattle gig. When u respect each other's work, labels like "shred" & "grunge" don't exist. #RIPChrisCornell #soundgarden meets #Testament #BrosInGuitar

‪Entrance to today's venue: @HOBAnaheim doing it right #RIPChrisCornell

Arizona, views from the highway. Some wish for all this to be developed & drilled, along with various reserves and national parks in other US States (not naming names but not hard to guess who these ""people"" are). To them, on behalf of nature, I say this: 🖕

‪Italian review, #AST in Roma (assuming it's a 'good' review) 🤞😏‬

This was on TV in the hotel gym this morning, had no idea there was a show with this name. Better not mess with me or I will find you IN CONTEMPT! ‬

‪Happy #MothersDay‬!

‪Awesome signed #BBKing poster backstage last night (Boise, Id). Tour was '98 but used vintage fonts & pic of BB with a Tele(!), pre-Lucille (goes to show not everyone finds their ideal sound/instrument during their early years)

Photo pit? Press cred? Nah! Sometimes it's just a random person in the crowd who nails a great shot. Thanks to Farzan in Boise for posting this on Twitter

‪My personal version of #TheResistance: avoiding impulse purchases at great guitar stores. Today: Emerald City Guitars, Seattle ‬@ECGuitars
