Hey folks, Went on what is apparently going to be a regular yearly excursion to witness a Trans-Siberian Orchestra Christmas show (second time I got "dragged" there by fam). For the "Eastern" portion of the tour schedule (there's two simultaneous touring units, East and West) they have Alex Scholnick as one of the guitarists... I've read of his reputation in guitar magazines since his time in Testament but this is my first time actually hearing him... and you know what? Alex Scholnick has got to be the most OVERRATED guitarist in the past thirty years of recorded music. For the entire night he sounded like a goddamn bumblebee on methamphetamines. Ugggh. Why do some people consider THAT to be great guitar playing?
