    Default European Guitarist Pissing Contest...

    Yngwie Malmsteen vs Michael Schenker


    http://www.michaelschenkerhimself.com

    To my true Fans,

    I am sorry to tell you that I have to cancel MSG's upcoming tour with Yngwie Malmsteen. It has turned out to be a catastrophe. The tour I agreed to was a co-Headline Deal with Yngwie closing the show. I was fine with this because he plays so loud and it would tend to deafen the delicate ears of my fans. However, reports have been coming in via e-mail, by phone, etc., that I was advertised only as a special guest. Yngwie himself was advertising it on his Website that way too. MSG was not even mentioned on the London Hammersmith tickets. This is an insult to MSG and myself

    I consulted with my brother Rudolph and he who usually finds a positive way out suggested that I should not do these concerts. I was hoping that it could have been straightened out, but, to date this situation has not been corrected. I need 20 days to put this unique event-25 Years MSG Celebration set together and cannot at this late date. This tour could have been saved, but, people are not working in my best interest. I Co-Headlined with Joe Satriani in '97 and there is no reason why this Tour should have been any different and that is how it was presented to me.

    To the best Fans in the world ...all my love,
    Michael

    Man, I hate that prick.

    I'm glad Schenker backed out of that wanking show Malmsteen puts on.

    Booooaaaring!

    I can take about .5 minutes of Yngwie in one sitting...

    Wanker.

    Is it possible that Michael can play with his big bro's band headlining or co-headlining, as the case may be.

    Is there too much history for that to happen??? I seem to recall something like that when Michael left. Or am I growing more senile with each passing day.

    I'm confused, are we talking about Yngwie Malmsteen or Rock Guitar God: Yngwie "J" Malmsteen ????

    Without the "J" I get him confused with all the other Yngwie Malmsteen's that play rock guitar....

    F that guy

    Contrary to what my signature might imply, I think Yngwie is the biggest tool in the history of sound. Even bigger than Axl.

    He thinks he's WAY too important to rock guitar. Guess what Yngwie? You're your biggest fan and everyone else thinks you're a joke. Playing fast does not make you God.

    He's a douche and I hope he looses the use of his hand while beating off to his own picture.

    Say what you want about the "J" but the first three records kicked serious ass.
