Grammy nominated and critically acclaimed guitar maestro Yngwie’s Malmsteen’s explosive guitar has firmly established him in the neo-classical and rock categories. He’s inspired aspiring guitarist worldwide for decades with such powerhouse classic albums as “Marching Out”, “Trilogy”, “Odyssey,” “Live in Leningrad/Trial By Fire”, “Fire & Ice”, and “Inspiration”. Malmsteen’s first album, “Rising Force” made it to #60 on the Billboard charts in 1984, gained him a Grammy nomination for best rock instrumental performance, and the album became Album of the Year. Then, Malmsteen proved that he was much more than a rock phenomenon in 1997 when he produced his first completely classical work, Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar and Orchestra in Eb minor, Op. 1. This groundbreaking album was recorded in Prague with the prestigious Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and famed symphony conductor Yoel Levi. 200 marked Malmsteen’s resurgence on the rock music scene – he scored the cover of Guitar World’s “Kings of Shred” issue, appearing alone on the cover instead of sharing it with other musicians and released his first studio album in several years titled “Perpetual Flame”. Perhaps the biggest, recognition, however, came in October when Malmsteen was inducted into Hollywood’s Rock Walk of Fame on Sunset Boulevard. Time Magazine, placed Malmsteen as one of the “10 Greatest Electric Guitar Players.”
