I haven't personally seen any posts made by Alex to this forum or any other where the claim is made out of context. I guess I'll have to take your word for it. That is voxhumana's impression of the Web version of the Guitar World article, in which the layout is changed. Nobody at Wikipedia bothered to refer to the print version, in which the "Where Are They Now" section appears on p. 84 but the article continues for another 2 pages; there are 14 guitarists listed after Alex, so he's hardly a footnote. Not that anyone at Wikipedia seemed to care.
