YNGWIE MALMSTEEN's 'G3 - Live in Denver' Among 50 Greatest Guitar DVDs
The February 2008 issue of Guitar Player magazine features a cover special on the 50 greatest guitar DVDs. "G3 - Live in Denver", featuring Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen, is one of the DVDs included. A scan of the article is available on Yngwie's official web site.
Malmsteen's "Fire & Ice" album (1992) was reissued in June through Noble Rot, the new label launched by Collectors' Choice. A press release reads: "By the time he released 'Fire & Ice' in 1992, Yngwie Malmsteen was established as one of heavy metal's reigning guitar gods, and was considered by many to be the most technically accomplished axemen in hard rock. The self-produced 'Fire & Ice' combines the baroque classicism of his early work with more commercially oriented material, resulting in a memorable showcase for the Swedish shred king's lightning fretwork."
Yngwie Malmsteen is working hard on a new rock album. The CD, which is once again expected to feature drummer Patrick Johansson and vocalist Doogie White (ex-RAINBOW), is tentatively due early next year.
