Malmsteen's Blue Lightning 4/2/19


Legendary guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen releases his new album 'Blue Lightning' on Friday 29th March on Mascot Records. Only a few guitarists are known with only their first name. Yngwie is one of them. With 'Blue Lightning', Malmsteen highlights not only his enduring dexterity and diversity, but also pays homage to those from the Blues and Rock worlds who have fuelled his artistic spirit for so long. Anyone who is expecting Yngwie to copy exactly the way the original versions sound is in for a shock. Because that is not what he has done. He has masterfully transformed classics like 'Smoke On The Water', 'Purple Haze' and 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' into his own inimitable style, plus wrote and recorded four new new tracks, one of which, 'Sun's Up Top's Down', is today's Track Of The Day'.
