Yngwie Malmsteen was asked by Metal Wani whether he'd be open to collaborating with singers such as Joe Lynn Turner and Tim "Ripper" Owens again, to which he replied (transcribed by UG):
"I find it very comfortable to sing myself, first of all.
"Secondly, there is a certain disconnect when you write a song and when you have someone else sing it for you. There's kind of like a fakeness about that.
"I always wrote everything. I wrote all the lyrics, I wrote all the melodies, just somebody else sung it.
"And to me, singing is not different than being a bass player or a keyboard player. They're not more important than the other musicians.
"They unfortunately seem to think that they are. I had it with their self-absorbed way, and I'm very much against it.
"I don't like that, I don't like any of those people. I would not like to do anything with them ever again."
