I love Criss Oliva’s playing, but Alex Skolnick is the greatest!

Skolnick. I like everything he's done with Testament and I enjoy his jazz stuff too.

Criss, as much like Vito Bratta, I sometimes just focus on his guitar. I have always loved his tone, and the intros/outros to a lot 'Tage songs are great because of them.

Skolnick, just due to the fact that I've always been a bit more into Testament than I was with Savatage.

This isn't exactly a scientific poll, but it is one more piece showing that Criss is the most criminally underrated guitarist in the history of hard rock.

Crazy that Alex Skolnick is winning! He's a great guitar player, but no match for Oliva.

Criss O, nothin' against Alex but I always preferred Savatage over Testament.

Did Criss even say a word in that whole interview? lol!

Jon was always the talker, for sure. As evidenced by his Storytellers Tour.

I've seen a bunch of Criss interviews and he was never as comfortable in front of the camera.

I watch a lot of Skolnick videos on Youtube and he's creepy hilarious. Totally into his guitars, but not necessarily explaining everything that well. "And if you want to uh play this, uh you just uh put your hands here like this and... *impossible shredding, nearly melts the guitar*... like that." I can do a pretty good impersonation. Of the talking. Not the shredding.
