Yngwie Malmsteen

Yngwie J. Malmsteen is no stranger to fans of neo-classical, shred guitar. In fact, in the minds of many, this Swedish six-string supernova is the undisputed king of the genre. He got his first guitar when he was 5, but it wasn't until he moved to America at 18 that he began to make a name for himself quickly. Since then he has influenced countless guitarists all over the globe. Yngwie likes to cram as many Marshalls as possible onto every stage he plays. There are only two manmade objects that can be seen from outer space, he grins, the Great Wall of China and my wall of Marshalls!
