Alex Skolnick - Testament
I freaking love Testament.

Saw them at the Cuban Club back in the day on the Practice What You Preach tour. It's an outdoor venue. I had climbed to the top of the speaker tower stage right, and Chuck came over as he was singing "Over The Wall" or "Into the Pit" (I can't remember which), and was looking right at me as he sang pointing to me for the crowd with a big ass grin on his face. Near the end of the song security came over, and were telling me to get down, so I did a back flip into the crowd. Good times.

Well, I was really bummed at the news of Dave Sanborn's passing. I went back and started listening to some of my old recordings in which he was featured. This is one of my favorites from his first solo album.
