Re: Maybe yngwie needs some anger managment
Well, he needs something. Most rock musicians have some sort of ego - that's why they practiced so much to get good - but when the topic of ego comes up as much as the topic of skill whenever you talk about a particular guy, then you know something's out of whack.
The Yngwie G3 was pretty funny, there were these "Yngwie Unleashed" t-shirts for sale. I'd say that shows he at least has a good sense of humor about it, but I have a feeling he didn't know about the shirts.
BTW, watch the outtakes at the end of the G3 DVD. There's a little after-show chat b/w Joe, Steve and Yngwie. There's this interesting part where Steve compliments Joe's playing on Red House, at which point Yngwie jumps in and says "oh, I didn't even hear that", and then starts talking about himself. It's like an exact replay of how he carried himself onstage.
