If he wasn't a complete asshole I'd be a fan. But he thinks he is the only one on the planet that plays guitar. I'll take Randy Rhoads over him anyday

Interesting to note that he doesn't use the "correct" Ritchie Blackmore fingering on this song.

And PLEASE note the quote unquote around the word correct.

What a douche. He ruined a perfectly good song. Not to mention he sounds like shit.
