The rock-and-roll memoir of one of the world's greatest guitarists
Yngwie Malmsteen's revolutionary guitar stylecombining elements of classical music with the speed and volume of heavy metalmade him a staple of the 80s rock scene. Decades later, he's still a legend among guitarists, having sold 11 million albums and influenced generations of rockers since. In Relentless, Malmsteen shares his personal story, from the moment he burst onto the scene seemingly out of nowhere in the early 80s to become a household name in the annals of heavy metal. Along the way, he talks about his first bands, going solo, his songwriting and recording process, and the seedy side of the rock business.
- Malmsteen was named one of Time magazine's ten greatest electric guitar players
- The author's most recent album, Spellbound, was released in December 2012
- Ideal for guitar players, heavy metal fans, and those who enjoy rock memoirs
Nota de la solapa
How does a kid from Sweden make his way to America at the tender age of eighteen and, within a month, have people lining up to hear him play guitar? Where did he get those chops? How did he develop his singular style of playing? And what happened next?
In "Relentless," world-renowned guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen relives the greatest and worst moments of his storied career as one of the most admired, talked about, and emulated guitarists in the world--from how he managed to buy his first Strat and assemble his first wall of Marshall amps to the truth behind the title of his 2005 "Unleash the Fury "album and beyond.
At the center of Yngwie's story is his lifelong rebellion against the conventions and restrictions of the Sweden in which he was raised. "Don't stand out," he was told when he dreamed of being a professional musician. "That won't work," he was warned when he wanted to play loud or little-known songs. His entire musical career has been a proclamation that he "will" stand out, and it "will "work.
That determination drove the fourteen-year-old Yngwie to make his now legendary Demo Powerhouse tape, the recording that later caught the ear of Shrapnel Records' Mike Varney, who brought Yngwie to America in 1982. It drove Yngwie to become the de facto leader of two already existing bands before launching a solo career just "eighteen months" later. It also drove him to act out in sometimes bizarre ways and develop a reputation as a mercurial, perhaps unstable, personality.
Yngwie recounts these incidents with neither pride nor apology, but with a great deal of color. And he gets into the seedy and unscrupulous side of rock and roll, revealing how managers, record companies, and others ripped him off, before his wife, April, rescued both him and his business.
Musicians will be drawn to Yngwie's descriptions of how he composed his greatest songs and his overall approach to composition and to band dynamics. He writes with admiration about musicians, from Deep Purple's Ritchie Blackmore to nineteenth-century violinist and composer Niccolo Paganini, who influenced his playing and the development of his unique neoclassical-metal style.
Whether you're a total metal freak, an aspiring musician, or someone who just loves a pull-out-all-the-stops rock-and-roll biography, you will read "Relentless" relentlessly from first page to last.Ver Descripción del producto

El tipo tiene el ego mas grande que la catedral de Burgos y se hace a veces insoportable como se vanagloria de lo grande que es (en todo caso que fue,ahora mismo es una parodia de el mismo),asi que al final estas deseando que se termine el libro, la verdad.
Eso no quita que Yngwie al menos hasta el album Eclipse nos ofrezca un trabajo de guitarra genial ,a partir del Fire and ice se empieza a repetir demasiado aunque aun molan sus discos ,para mi a partir de alchemy se hizo bastante insoportable y hoy en dia solo repite el mismo solo una y otra vez ,en fin ...
Un libro entretenido, que se lee de un tirón, aunque se añora una mayor extensión y mayor profundización en el mundo que le rodea, ventila de un plumazo las relaciones con sus mujeres, lo que con mayor detalle describiría todavía mejor al personaje.
Dirigido a aspirantes a músicos, por su profusión de detalles al respecto en especial con respecto a los managers, y a admiradores de la estrella.

Malmsteen is alone with his ability to do what he does, but the constant need for attention, when fans have fallen off by the thousands since the 80s is telling. Idols rarely lose fans to the degree Malmsteen has over the past 20 years. I last saw him in Atlanta, just 3-4 years ago, where he sold about 2k seats, if that. Steve Vai, about the same - with about 3k seats (if that much) at the Atlanta Center for Puppetry Arts.
Guitar heroes are dying and 12 year olds are playing as good or better because there is so much access to things we never had. Instruments are 10 fold better than 30 years ago, studios 100 fold better, videos are in the billions for angles, techniques, etc. Malmsteen was the first in many ways, but comes in last in respect.
He should easily be in the top 5 list in every Greatest Guitarist list, no doubt, but his attitude, lack of sales, falling off of fans, and his tendency to repeat the same old stuff has cost him places. Now he usually ends up around #15-25 in most books. Sad, and this book is a correct title, it is a RELENTLESS bore.
Good book. Yngwie teamed with a real writer so it reads well. I didn't find him as egotistical and others seem to. I think he just speaks his mind and people don't seem to like that. People like to be placated and blather in self depreciating folksy "humour". Malmsteen doesn't do that and thank god. Fact is Malmsteen is well beyond most people. As a player and composer I mean. Nothing wrong with knowing it.
