Well check this guy out….Yngwie Malmsteen (pronunced Ing-vay)

Yngwie is going to be on “That Metal Show”  Saturday April 9th, the show will air at 11pm ET/PT you can watch it on VH1 Classics!

Malmsteen was born Lars Johan Yngve Lannerbäck in Stockholm, Sweden, as the third child of a musically-inclined family.[6] At age seven, he saw a television news report on the death of Jimi Hendrix, an event which had a profound impact on his musical path. To quote his official website, “The day Jimi Hendrix died, the guitar-playing Yngwie was born.”.[7] At the age of 10 he took his mother’s maiden name Malmsten as his surname, slightly changed it to Malmsteen, and Anglicised his given name Yngve to “Yngwie”. Yngwie also created his first band “Track On Earth” at the age of 10, consisting of himself and a friend from school on drums (Armin). Malmsteen was a teenager when he first encountered the music of the 19th century violin virtuoso Niccolò Paganini, whom he cites as his biggest classical music influence. Ritchie Blackmore and Uli Jon Roth are also cited as being significant influences. He played featuring Denim And Leather song with Saxon during The Eagle Has Landed part II tour.
