Yngwie Malmsteen - Far Beyond the Sun

Fresh off my "Unleash the &?$%* Fury!!!!" post, I thought I'd post a vid of Yngwie playing my favorite tune of his. "Far Beyond the Sun", a tour-de force barn-burner that contains all the hallmarks of his incredible style and technique. This is not a song so much as a neo-classical composition. Great pic of him on his website (posted upper left). This is Yngwie how I remember him, all young and skinny. Nowadays he kinda looks like Steve Vai's fat crazy uncle (I speak only the similar experience of gaining 50 pounds in my late 20's early 30's. Yngwie, meet Atkins, it worked for me...)

And here's a nice where is he now video from VH1.
