Saw him last nite.....

Dear god the man still has it........ His band rocks aswell..... Not that you really notice them too much.... Douggie White is an awesome singer, and we all know how Derek Sherinan is on keys...... Best concert i will ever see id say......

They did some hendrix stuff like red house aswell as a cover of Rainbows "Gates of Babylon" which was one of the highlites....

They played my fave Yngwie song aswell.. "I am a viking"

Anyway if your considering going 2 a Yngwie concert i highly recomend it.... Hes an amazing performer aswell as guitarist!!!

The guy gets slated too often for wanking. He's not the most emotional or melodic of the lot, but he's the pride of the genre! And yes, terribly entertaining to watch. What a backing band!

I didn't know that sherinian was on the keys, thats pretty cool.
People slam Malmsteens live perfomances all the time because he jumps around alot and throws picks into the crowd. But I love watching him. Its cool how much he gets into it. And yeah sure he is arrogant but that just makes you love him even more.

I cannot agree with you more...... I would much rahter see him charging round the stage full of excitement then watch Petrucci stand in the one spot looking at his guitar not even moving or aknowledging the crowd....... **** who cares if hes arrogant.... Alot of people in this world are, he has an excuse (if there is such a thing) hes one of the greatest guitarists ever.... A virtuoso....

Malmsteen's pretty good but there are better you know guys... and I don't consider him the pride of shred(which should be either becker,gilbert,petrucci, or vai), he's just one of the most awesome ones.

to all who flame Yngwie, id love to see you guys pull of stuff like that, let alone create that music. Many people flame him for not 'feeling' it on stage, but trust me, the mans a genius. Maybe its because he comes from a Classical background, that some people might not understand or appreciate, but for those of you who do appreciate classical music, and like rock just as well, you will love Yngwie, he blends the two so well. In my opinion, hes the top dog when it comes to shredding with magnificent melodies, awesomely masterclass, just listen to Magnum Opus, you'll see, its no mindless wanking, its awesome melodic MUSIC, not noise, i assure you, but hey thats me, maybe you prefer Hip Hop or something, but hey, whateva turns ya on mates!!

Hes definently the best at what He does- that is Neo- classical rock music... its just that hes very repetitive and sometimes it just seems like all he can really do is Alternate picking runs, Sweeping arpeggios and pedal tone licks.

To me, that's one of his few redeeming qualities. Why would someone rather watch some stiff ass stuck up dork play guitar with no emotion than watch someone get into it? If I just wanted to hear the music, I'd sit home and listen to the CD. But I go to a concert for the show as well as the music.

I respect him. He's a very talented guitarist. However, I really dislike his music, and he's an arrogant prick, although lately he's been a little better. His cover of Purple Haze is surprisingly good though.

I think what he meant was that some players don't have " emotion" written all over their face (in their performance). Rather than the music not having any " emotion" .

Doesn't mean that, although it may not look like it, a particular player isn't enjoying his own music, of course.

I agree. When I go to see a concert I want to see a real show and that Yngwie can definately do.

Dream Theater's gig was one of the most boring gigs I've ever attended. The guys just stood there, played their set and left. They played well, but couldn't get contact to the crowd.

i got my first yngwie cd (Unleash the Fury) about a week before he come to where i live, but i didn't get to go, i was so pissed. People tell me they don't like his solos because they're so detached and just straight blazing, but he's the only person i listen to who sounds like that (besides cooley, but their styles are hugely different) so it doesn't bother me. The show in Columbus OH, where i live, the PA system went out, so apperenlty he solod by himself for about 12 minutes.

Pfft, no such thing as emotion(Hot human emotions), it's the dynamics, key, and tempo that usually makes people think that something is, "emotion".

I love Yngwie's live style. He just rocks out without abandon. I like to do that myself, so I can identify. No ninja kicks - but really, if you really get into things onstage and buy into it, the audience will too. Guitar flipping and pick throwing = very cool.

Agreed, since I took up guitar tossing. We've been so busy we've had to turn down offers for gigs. My band thinks it's just because we're good. He he. THey don't get it. Show biz sells!
