Re: Joe stump Vs Yngwie Malmsteen
Yeah. He was & is influenced by him, as well as the composers he mentioned & Blackmore, Schenker, Hendrix, Chastain, Moore, probably Uli Roth too but that doesn't suggest he copied or copies from him. Stump has got better with age & Yngwie has been going down hill since Rising Force.
They're influenced by almost exactly the same people so its hardly suprising they share similarities in their playing. I think they both borrow from the Baroque period, but not from each other. I would think that cos Stump learns Yngwie's **** still, taht would further inhance he wouldn't copy him.
I get pissed off when i come up with something that sounds like anyone. My feelings are "****, that sounds like....".
I dunno, but he hasn't intentionally copied Yngwie's style. Being influenced aint the same as copying.
Stump even done a tribute to Yngwie on Speed Metal Messiah called Unleashing The Fury.
