show me: Seems? Really, does nobody proofread anymore? You got his name right but you can't spell sees?
hogans: I object to the tags. David St. Hubbins is not the lead guitarist for Spinal Tap, Nigel Tufnel is!Yngwie was pretty good on Alcatrazz's first album. Then he heard he should move to Los Angeles for the good of the group, and a new soloist was born. Good on him!/Then Steve Vai ate all the table scraps
fusillade762: But the unintended consequence of the social welfare system was that it basically killed your ambition to try for anything out of the ordinary or to strive to reach higher goalsI know the only reason I ever strive to achieve anything is the thought of freezing to death on the street or dying if I get sick.
darkjezter: Yngwie Malmsteen is the Swedish Eddie Van Halen: a very talented guitarist who is also a massively egotistical prick who drives away his bandmates.
TheJoe03: Heard this guys name a billion times but I for the life of me couldn't name one song from the guy. Kind of exemplified the soulless metal stuff coming out in that era. All technique over emotion, which ain't the best way to make good music.
DrBrydon: "Yngvi is a louse!"/obsure?
zappaisfrank: I remember hearing all about Malmsteen back in the day, so I poined up a couple of bucks for one of his albums...and I was amazed at how much I didn't like it. The singer was awful (don't even remember who it was) and the guitar playing was this million-notes-a-second nonsense that just totally missed it with me.I'm not a big fan of shredders anyway. My wife bought a "G3" video tape a long while back; Satriani and Vai totally bored me. Eric Johnson was a welcome relief by the time he got his segment.
MadAzza: Ah, Malmsteen, the epitome of soulless, boring, self-indulgent "shredding."
drkats: Say what you want about Yngwie, but he did he did change guitar playing and most players are still trying to emulate him today. He pretty much invented sweep arpeggios and he is still the best at it. His songs may have been boring the last twenty years or so, but his talent is unsurpassed.
Commander Salamander: I agree with every negative comment made about Yngwie, but must admit that I still love the album Marching Out.
Some Bass Playing Guy: Malmsteen is one of the few guitarists with an ego as big as Ritchie Blackmore's.
