    One thought on “Relentless: The Memoir”

    1. A long time fan of Yngwie, this book was always going to appeal and it didn t disappoint Written in first person, it s very much true to the lore of Malmsteen ie a genius who knows he s a genius Although covering his whole career, most of this book deals with Malmsteen himself with very little mention of his bandmates The Johansson brothers get a little airtime and Yngwie s got a few words for Joe Lynn Turner, alright although, I don t think Joe will much care for them , but from top to bottom, [...]

    2. Another autobiography of a musical artist whom I have always respected for his ability, and discussed with others about his reported self confidence.The first 70% of this book is terrifically interesting, talking of his childhood, and how he first started guitaring, and his first bands, and his first recordings Then how he was discovered and moved to the U.S to follow his dreams Lie it appears many other artists, he also details his dalliances in alcohol abuse, his failed business dealings of hi [...]

    3. There I was, some ten years ago, still reeling from the overwhelming experience of my first Malmsteen gig I had brought my signature Malmsteen Strat and I stood outside the venue for two hours in the freezing cold and drizzle waiting for him to show up and sign it When he finally did, our encounter was very brief In the end, someone April, his wife, I think had to take my guitar unto the tour bus and they almost took of with it I did get the guitar back and it s been one of my most prized posses [...]

    4. Did you know That as a teenager, Yngwie recorded music every day in a converted bomb shelter That his father was a Swedish spy in the Cold War That he had a near fatal drunken car crash that almost caused him the loss of function of his picking hand, but ultimately only made his hair go curly That he has an uncompromising musical vision, but that vision for some reason also includes baffling radio friendly cock rock That the thing he does is not actually sweep picking, even though that s what he [...]

    5. Yngwie turned the guitar world upside down when I was in college, and his first three albums were favorite listening of mine while studying I ve always loved his playing, and wondered if the interviews I ve read over the years were an accurate portrayal I read this book in a day just couldn t put it down He doesn t pull punches, yet has many charitable things to say about familiar names in the music business The book is written in a conversational style as though you re sitting across the table [...]

    6. Un genere di libri che tanto mi piace leggere sono le autobiografie, soprattutto quelle di musicisti la cui carriera seguo da tempo.In questo libro il vichingo pi famoso della sei corde racconta per filo e per segno la sua vita e la sua carriera.Il libro inizia con gli ormai classici dicono di lui di svariati personaggi pi o meno rilevanti, e in una breve introduzione ci racconta che questa autobiografia vede la luce dopo ben sei anni di lavoro Nella parte centrale della rilegatura troviamo un i [...]

    7. Review Summary Yngwie J Malmsteen is arguably the paramount technical metal guitarist on this planet And possibly several planets as well He has written a fascinating memoir that is presented from his unique perspective on life, music and his undeniable confidence in his own ability that many find too abrasive.Rating 80%Review in a bit detail Anyone who knows Yngwie Malmsteen s work generally falls in to one of two extreme categories you either love him or hate him He revolutionised metal guit [...]

    8. Yngwie s memoir is quite interesting from the start and does serve to illuminate his formative years As a guitarist, Yngwie was undoubtedly a huge influence upon me and so many others as a player He does share plenty of insights about his early career and rise to success.Yngwie also spends a lot of time praising himself for his contributions to music Mr Malmsteen doles out only the most sparing praise to his collaborators, most of whom he doesn t even bother to mention As an author, he does have [...]

    9. Recuerdo con lujo de detalles hace aproximadamente 24 a os cuando conoc a Ing i jam s podr pronunciar su nombre como deber a que es algo como Yngvei, no me parece correcto a estas alturas y nadie sabr a de qui n estoy hablando El lbum fu Trilogy y recuerdo que un amigo lo estaba tocando en su cami n al lado de casa y al pasar la vecina dijo que era m sica del diablo La canci n que sonaba era I m a Viking Yngwie ha sido uno de esos m sicos, que aunque no lo escucho frecuente, se ha quedado conmig [...]

    10. 5 stars for Yngwie, but only 3 for his book There s definitely some interesting material for rabid fans like me Run ins with various former bands and bandmates years and years of excessive drinking and rock star behavior crooked managers and the fortunes they stole two failed marriages one great marriage the birth of his son and his greatest pal Antonio and above all, Yngwie s love of music He s telling it like it is and not in his native language but at times the cliches and repetitious writing [...]

    11. Truly amazing I read this eBook very slowly I didn t want to finish it I can really connect with this book as I am a musician with obsessive tendencies and have always been an individual It s like reading about myself in the way that I approach thinking about music and how to write music.Yngwie Malmsteen to me has always been misunderstood This book hopefully will help explain how Yngwie does things He is a modern day J S Bach rather than an electric guitar player in a band.The magic does not di [...]

    12. Newsflash Yngwie J Malsteen is the greatest technical rock player of all time Don t believe me Read his new memoir, he ll tell you he is Seriously, he is an amazing guitarist I have loved his signature style since I was a teenager His book was very well written and really painted a different picture than what I had imagined his life to be Also loved that he added some music theory geekdom into his writing of this book It would have been impossible to tell his story without it, so I m glad he add [...]

    13. Very awesome book Never read an autobiography before It was like Yngwie Malmsteen himself was talking in my head all the time i was reading the book It didn t really sound like i am ready a book, it was like he was sitting in front of me and telling me stories of his life.I didn t like the fact that the book wasn t based on a timelinee other issue i didn t like was that it was not very detailed I still have tons of questions and probably if he wanted to tell all it would be a 500 pages book.Over [...]

    14. Surprisingly enjoyable tell all memoir from the original enfant terrible of shred guitar Sure, his ego looms larger than a stack of vintage Marshalls over every page, and he does go on about his love of Ferraris and Rolexes a little than I d like, but for the most part it s refreshingly candid and heartfelt.The infamous you ve unleashed the % %ing fury incident can be heard here and it s hilarious soundcloud massivecoiler

    15. At last the biography of one of the most accomplished composers, arrangers, and instrumental virtuosos ever I was impressed by the author s intellect and insights as well as the profundity and breadth of his knowledge and understanding of music Guitarists will find a few worthwhile tips, although not nearly as many as I d hoped for A unique glimpse into the founder of neo classical heavy metal.

    16. J ai toujours appr ci la musique de Malmsteen mais comme personne je l ai par contre toujours detest , si quelqu un la m me vision que j avais de lui je l invite lire ce livre, au pire des cas il remontera un chti peu dans votre estime.Livre tr s int ressant, AC DC, KISS, Billy Sheehan et j en passe sont mentionn s dans le livre.

    17. I was expecting to not like Yngwie before starting this book but I found myself respecting him greatly This is a fantastic book It is not your typical memoir It s a focused and detailed autobiography that shows the real side to the Swedish guitar god.

    18. As the Kerrang headline once read when reviewing the Odyssey album Ready, Steady, Ego For committed YJM fans only, fills in some of his bio history and guitar kit gaps.If only he would just play a little bit faster

    19. The story is interesting, but I would have liked to have heard the opinions of some of the people mentioned in the book There are always two sides to a story I felt there was a bit too much repetition in the commentary Some things only need to be said once.

    20. a Very interesting Memoir of a Highly controversial Musician and Guitar Virtuoso All I can say is that after reading this my opinion of Yngwie has changed, for the better And I m no Fanboy a quick read.

    21. Great biography I really enjoyed this I ve always loved his guitar playing but didn t know anything about his life I highly recommend it

    22. nice to hear him explain his life in his own words however, the whole ends up reading like a very long advertisement and, as much as he tries to deny it, the dude is arrogant.

    23. It explains why he is how he is So I enjoyed it, could ve done without all the technical guitar speak, but really, did I expect that to not be there No.
