TESTAMENT's ALEX SKOLNICK To Perform U.S. National Anthem At CHICAGO BULLS Vs. DETROIT PISTONS Game

TESTAMENT and METAL ALLEGIANCE guitarist Alex Skolnick will perform the U.S. national anthem as the Chicago Bulls battle the Detroit Pistons on Friday, November 1 at 7 p.m. at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. That same night, the Bulls will have a METAL ALLEGIANCE band spotlight that night.

Don't forget, METAL ALLEGIANCE plays the night prior (October 31) at the Bottom Lounge, paying tribute to the mighty BLACK SABBATH.

A televised performance of the MILES DAVIS ELECTRIC BAND in the late '90s led Skolnick to New York City, where he immersed himself in the jazz world. For the past decade and a half, Skonick has led a double life as a member of TESTAMENT, the seminal thrash metal band he joined at the age of 16.

A year ago, the ALEX SKOLNICK TRIO — comprised of Skolnick, bassist Nathan Peck and drummer Matt Zebroski — released "Conundrum", its first album since 2011.

On returning to jazz with his trio for the first time in a number of years, the TESTAMENT guitarist noted: "These days I still love playing screaming, loud guitar and heavy metal, though I don't think I'm going to be one of these guys who's past social-security age and in a rock band and touring. But I can see myself doing these songs with the trio for many years to come."

Come watch our guitar guru Alex Skolnick perform the National Anthem as the Chicago Bulls battle the Detroit Pistons on...
