The founding member and the lead guitarist of thrash metal band Testament, Alex Skolnick, has shared an unbelieved photo of himself with three legends via his verified and official Instagram account.

Alex Skolnick has shared special photos of himself with Tom Morello from Audioslave, Geddy Lee from Rush, and Dave Grohl from Foo Fighters. He had taken these photos with them in 2019.

Also, he has written an evaluation message for 2019 and shared some details about what he experienced with his friends and fans.

Here’s the 2019 story of Alex Skolnick:

“Happy New Year! #best9of2019 New Year can be a bit bittersweet, especially at the end of a decade. So much change from then till now.
I can’t help but reflect on the many highs but also some lows (more highs on my end, thankfully). Also thinking of so many fine folks we lost during these ten years (including a really great one just today, guitarist #vicjuris, still in shock, will post more soon)…I wrote some reflections in a blog that’s too much to fit here, a sample below. Whatever you’re doing this evening: be safe and let’s make the 2020’s the best they can be (we’ve got a lot of work to do)…Thank u for the support 🙏 You guys/gals rule 👊 🎉

ENTER 2020 This is my third time entering a new decade as a New Yorker (I arrived in the late ‘90s). The first time was overshadowed by the fact that we were simultaneously entering a new century, which in turn was overshadowed by crossing over into a whole new millennium.

The second time around, in late 2009, had more of a sense of transition. The decade’s most defining event, 9/11, had taken place right here in NYC (which I witnessed firsthand). Its long, tragic aftermath (experienced by the whole country and indeed, the world), dominated the 00s. By decade’s end, the rise of innovative tech companies headed by idealistic, young CEOs, not to mention the election of a youthful and idealistic US President (our first “person of color”), felt like the turning of a page. Soon, we would all be better connected (via smartphones and mass-social media) in a post-racial society more reflective of the ideals the nation was founded upon. Meanwhile, truth would dominate conversations, since it could be shared so easily, and we’d all be more enlightened, entering a new, brighter phase of existence. Right?

I don’t need to tell anyone that things didn’t quite turn out that way. The faint sway of possible hope and progress that defined the beginning of the 2010s feels as distant as an episode of The Celebrity Apprentice.”
