I like him. Most people don't like him because that's what everyone else is doing...

I mean, sure, he ripped off a lot of his stuff from classical composers, but he still wails.

He's an arrogant and obnoxious wanker that had a raging hissy fit at a little old lady and raved on about killing her. I find him to be a detestable person, but i do like the stuff he did in the 80's. Oh i guess i like all his music then.

I actually like him. Even though a lot of his songs are bland harmonic minor wanking there are quite a few gems thrown in here and there and they are truly great.

I like him because his limited repetoire of stuff is both uniquely his own and quite good.

Anyone who hates him because he's fat or opinionated needs to pick a fight with a tiger with large pieces of bacon stapled to them.

Meh he's alright. His skills are obviously excellent but I'm not a big fan of his music. I'm totally basing my opinion of him on his album Rising Force btw, cause that's all I've heard from him.

^^Yngwie is legendary for his arrogance and twattery. He even refuses to give autographs sometimes or talk to fans because he thinks he is better than everyone. EVERYONE. That and the plane incident, is the tape recording of that real btw?

He doesnt think he's better than everyone...at guitar, better than everyone he doesnt know already, and thats a decent assumption in his case, how many times a day does some pentatonic wanker come up and try and play his songs to him?

Yngwie says 'hes at the top of his game' alot...which is just being an arse, I get bored by his music quickly, even the good tracks, I've never seen yngwie in concert but from videos,
Yngwie in concert <<<<<<<< (times the number of times vai's cryed over bamby) vai in concert.

People need to look at Yngwie as an artist, not a person. That's why.

Yngwie in concert owns as well (pp )
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

I like some of his songs, but I can only listen to him in small doses, it all sounds the same after a few songs. rising force is an awesome album.

and I dont care if hes a bad person - I like him okay as an artist, Im not looking for him to be my best buddy or anything...

I agree that Malmsteen is an ass and does put himself much higher than deserved, but he's still a wicked guitar player as I've said earlier. Vai beats the hell out of him, sure, but he's still great.

I don't mind him. He's sh*tloads better than me so I can't really badmouth him and have it mean anything. I could be cliche' and bash him for being fat, but what purpose would that serve seeing as he isn't really anymore?

he didnt say he sucks, he doesnt like his vibrato in the song. SO?! i'm not fond of steves vibrato in the song either. He is allowed to have his own opinion. Jesus.

Yngwie has his moments, but some of his stuff is just bland harmonic minor wanking.

i dont like him because in every interview ive read with him, he thinks he's king ****. for how seriously he takes his compositions, they all sounds soooooo similar its not even funny. he's obviously one of the most talented guitarists in the world, but his songs suck. on g3 live in denver during the jams, he just wanks and wanks while vai and satch have good melodic ones and in one solo, he gos too long and vai and stach look at each other and you can tell what theyre thinking; "WANKER"

It seems that everybody here hates yngwie
why???



Not "everybody" hates Yngwie. Many who hate him have simply heard/read somewhere that "It's cool to hate Yngwie, cause he's arrogant and fat.", so being the trendwh.ores that they are, they've joined this Yngwie hating cult, even though a good percentage of them haven't even listened to his music.

Besides, anyone who uses "lol", "rofl" and "your" when they mean "you're" (for example: "your a dumbass") couldn't possibly have a relevant oppinion when it comes to music and judging artists.


EDIT: seems the good old doesn't work anymore, so we can't type fuck when we want to say f.u.c.k. Aww...
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.
