Are you a fan of Yngwie Malmsteen? His guitar playing is unmatched - but I've always been on the fence about his music. Again, I appreciate his talent - but I've never really been drawn to any of his songs.
Actually, I find many of them quite boring.
It's possible I'll be seeing Malmsteen live - he and his band are rumored for the final day of Rocklahoma. Tim "Ripper" Owens is apparently signing for Malmsteen these days. I guess if this happens, I'll be excited. At least it would be a chance to see someone different - because I'm pretty sure I'd never deliberately buy a ticket to see Malmsteen live.
Is it me? Am I missing something? Remember: I am a huge fan of guitar heavy albums. I love just about everything from Van Halen to Avenged Sevenfold when it comes to complex riffs. With Malmsteen - I turn my nose.
Here are some videos featuring Malmsteen and his Rising Force. Maybe I'll learn to love it. Do you?
Here is "Heaven Tonight."
Here is "You Don't Remember."
I feel like I've just revealed a dirty secret: I don't really like Yngwie Malmsteen. Scandal!
