Yngwie Malmsteen Shreds with Alcatrazz in 1984 — Video
For today's flashback video, we're dropping in on a young Yngwie Malmsteen, circa-1984.
Fans who got to see the Graham Bonnet-led Alcatrazz perform in the early to mid-'80s were treated to bits and pieces of Malmsteen's mastery in pretty much every song — but especially when he took his extended solo breaks.
Below, you can check out one such break, recorded during Alcatrazz's 1984 tour of Japan.
After some mind-blowing, scalloped-fretboard hijinx, Malmsteen launches into his interpretation of Bach's "Bouree."
