Yngwie Malmsteen  


Yngwie Malmsteen is arguably the most influential classical metal guitarist of the 80's and 90's. Though he was already well known in Europe in the early 80's with his Rising Force project, he didn't really get worldwide acclaim until he collaborated with Ron Keel (who later went to found his band, Keel) on a short-lived project called Steeler, and then followed that with a stint in Alkatrazz before going solo. Detractors may criticize his songs-written-just-for-soloing style, but his musical and technical talents are unparalleled. The numerous people who have played on an Yngwie album comprise a virtual all-star lineup in the field of hard rock/metal.
