Yngwie Malmsteem Background
Born Lars Johan Yngve Lannerback in Sweden, Malmsteen was raised in an incredibly musical family. Malmsteen's infatuation with music started to grow at a young age, and by the time he was 10 he had already put together his first band. During his teenage years, Malmsteen was significantly influenced by classical music, drawing inspiration from classic composers like Niccolo Paganini. He soon discovered the music of Ritchie Blackmore, who became Malmsteen's biggest musical influence regarding the guitar.
Malmsteen continued playing and recording his songs throughout high school, and by the time he was 18, record executives and managers were already interested in the burgeoning new guitarist. Mike Varney of Shrapnel Records brought Malmsteen to the US and engaged him in numerous performances and recordings, including recording an album with Steeler and Graham Bonnet's Alcatraz. Malmsteen started to record his own songs, and released his first solo album, Rising Force, in 1984. This album went on to receive rave reviews and high critical praise, even earning a Grammy nomination for "Best Rock Instrumental".
From the release of his very first album, Malmsteen's recognition in the rock world just continued to explode, making him known as one of the best guitarists in the '80s. While Malmsteen continued to release killer tracks all throughout the Nineties, his success in the US waned, as the heavy metal styles of the Eighties had gone out of style. Fortunately, Malmsteen was still a huge success in other parts of the world like Europe and Asia. Over the years, Malmsteen has never put his passion for playing the guitar aside; he continues to release hit albums and singles and wow crowds with his incredible guitar playing skills. TIME magazine named Malmsteen one of the 10 best electric guitar players of all time, and because of his work on the guitar, he has been featured in video games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band.
