Random Rock Star Moment #13: Yngwie Malmsteen

Tour Manager Doug ("TMD") sent Umlaut a Blackberry message from Madrid, España to say that the local radio station was playing Yngwie Malmsteen. Umlaut replied with "What year is this?" and sent him this pic:

Yngwie with Steeler (His 1st show outside of Sweden)
The Old Waldorf, San Francisco - 1983
(Pic by Umlaut)

TMD then forwarded the pic to his buddy who is Yngwie's current tour manager.. who replied with this:

"Just showed this to Yngwie. He asked me in his best Jerky Boys "Where does dis guy get dis wacky shit?" Surreal."

Sometimes, Umlaut's world is THIS small.
