Testament’s founding member and lead guitarist, Alex Skolnick, recently responded to Ted Nugent’s comments on Joe Biden through his Twitter account and revealed whether he has ever shared a stage with Nugent and if he would want to.

Alex Skolnick is known for his successful career as the lead guitarist of Testament and his collaborations with well-known bands such as Metal Allegiance, the Alex Skolnick Trio, and Savatage. In addition to that, in a Guitar World reader’s poll, Skolnick was voted as one of the best guitarists of all time and he is widely considered to be one of the fastest guitarists ever.

As he’s so involved in the metal and rock scene means, Skolnick regularly follows the latest news in the rock scene and as a vocal musician, he has the courage to comment on things that he disagrees with. Recently, Skolnick came across an article that discussed Ted Nugent’s comment on Joe Biden and he couldn’t resist the urge to comment on it.

Some days ago Nugent said that Joe Biden is ‘the worst human possible to represent the United States of America’ because as you already know, he’s a passionate Trump supporter and conservative political activist. Upon seeing this comment, Skolnick struggled not to tell off Nugent but he couldn’t and eventually commented a series of ‘I’m not going to respond’ sentences.

After that, a fan asked Skolnick if he ever met Ted Nugent and whether they have performed together. To this, Alex responded by saying that he only went to a concert of his in the ’80s to watch the support act and that right now he feels quite happy that he never had the chance to meet him in person, as he finds Nugent’s statements upsetting.

Here’s what the article’s title said:

“Ted Nugent says Joe Biden is ‘The worst human possible to represent the United States of America'”

To which Skolnick responded:

Im not going to respond. I’m not going to respond. I’m not going to respond. I’m not going to respond. I’m not…”

And a fan asked:

“Alex, have you ever played with him on tour?”

Here’s what Alex replied to that:

“Never on the same bill. Saw him live once in the ’80s, high school days for me, he was good but I was there for the support act (MSG/Schenker). Haven’t met him (no regrets, especially when he makes statements like this).”
