Video: Yngwie Malmsteen Live at Beale Street Music Festival

Not only does it seem that the Swedish guitar hero’s formidable guitar chops remain well intact, but he also seems to have hardly aged a day since he burst into the scene in the early 1980s with Graham Bonnet in Alcatrazz. Granted, the sound in this clip is a little rough, but Malmsteen’s technique is as smooth as ever as he stands before the requisite wall of Marshalls wailing away on his Fender Strat during this performance of “Heaven Tonight.”
