Yngwie Malmsteen Net Worth $7.5 Million

Yngwie Malmsteen is arguably the most technically accomplished hard rock guitarist to emerge during the ’80s. Combining a dazzling technique honed over years of obsessive practice with a love for such classical composers as Bach, Beethoven, and Paganini, Malmsteen’s distinctively Baroque, gothic compositional style and lightning-fast arpeggiated solos rewrote the book on heavy metal guitar. His mostly instrumental debut album, Rising Force, promptly upped the ante for aspiring hard rock guitarists and provided the important driver for the ’80s guitar phenomenon known as “shredding,” in which the music’s main focus was on impossibly quick, demanding licks rather than songwriting. Malmsteen released a succession of records on the length of the ’80s that, aside from minimal differences in strategy and performance, were strongly similar to Rising Force, and critics charged him with showing little artistic progress. He was also reviled as an egotist whose emphasis on blazing technique ultimately made for dreary, mechanical, masturbatory music free of room for subtlety or emotion.
