Why did Yngwie change his name?
I remember playing until my fingers got all sore, and I put Band-Aids on them and kept going.” When he turned ten, Yngwie decided to change his last name to his mother’s maiden name, Malmsteen. Around the same time, he skipped school often and focused all of his energy into music and improving his guitar playing.
Yngwie Johan Malmsteen is a Swedish guitarist and bandleader. Malmsteen first became known in the 1980s for his neoclassical metal playing style in heavy metal, and has released 20 studio albums in a career spanning almost 40 years. In 2009, Time magazine rated Malmsteen as among the 10 greatest electric guitar players of all time. Malmsteen was born Lars Johan Yngve Lannerbäck in Stockholm, Sweden, the third child of a musical family. At the age of ten Malmsteen created his first band, Track on Earth, consisting of himself and a friend from school playing the drums. At the age of twelve he took his mother’s maiden name Malmsten as his surname, then slightly changed it to Malmsteen and altered his third given name Yngve to “Yngwie.” As a teenager he was heavily influenced by classical music, particularly 19th century Italian violinist composer Niccolò Paganini, as well as Johann Sebastian Bach, a German multi instrumentalist and composer of the 18th century.. During this time, he also discovered his most important guitar influence, Ritchie Blackmore. Malmsteen has stated that Jimi Hendrix had no musical impact on him and did not contribute to his style, but watching the 18 September 1970 TV special, where Hendrix smashed and burned his guitar, made Malmsteen think “this is really cool”.Read Full Biography Wikipedia
