Description

The rock-and-roll memoir of one of the world's greatest guitarists.

Yngwie Malmsteen's revolutionary guitar style - combining elements of classical music with the speed and volume of heavy metal - made 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.

Bloviations

You know that frequent, unpleasant occurrence when you talk to someone who only talks about how awesome he is at everything, and how he's almost never made any mistakes, or has never suffered like most people suffer? This book is basically like that. There's a lot of delusion to sift through. He talks about how smooth his shows are now that he's sober and that he only hires sober people. But I went to a workshop of his recently and it was a mess. Further, he raves about how great his guitar tone is now, but at that clinic he played obnoxiously loud and his tone was shrill and brittle. You'd thing 11 Marshall cabs (or was it 11 heads? I forget) would have a fuller, deeper sound. I think his hearing is damaged. Mine might be too after that show. Thanks, Yngwie. But it's fairly interesting to hear his take on things.

Amazing book!

After listening to Yngwie Malmsteen for so many years, I greatly appreciate him sharing his memoirs. There were so many things I wondered about, and this book explained so much. Really really enjoyed it. I would recommend it to anyone who appreciates his music and guitar playing.

Very Inspiring

The pase was good. Even when it jumps to a different point in his life, it stays solid. He gives a lot of good advice at the beginning and end.

Yngwie rules

if you love Yngwie you will love this. How do you get that good? Well it's hard work and being a maniac. the guy is unrelenting as the title implies in his conviction and his vision. But he's funny and he has a big heart.

I couldn't put it down

I listened to the whole book in just 2 days (neglecting a lot of school work to pull it off). I just couldn't put it down. The book gives an insight into the mind of Yngwie and his life in Sweden that ultimately shaped him into the guitar maestro that he is.
