    I understand. We all know what we know. Some people simply aren't old enough to remember Yngwie J. Malmsteen's Rising Force's first releases. Having said that, Yngwie might be the last guitar "hero" that truly changed the way guitar was played. He more or less created a sub-genre of metal, called neo-classical. It didn't exist before him. Without Yngwie, we may very well not have Symphony X and countless other bands.
    The tenure with Yngwie is far from Jeff's only accomplishment, as he also sang for Journey, Talisman etc. but I stress his tenure with Yngwie simply because of the impact that band had on metal music. It is truly significant.

    Yeah I was really looking forward to ML. I thought they could easily be the darling of the show. However, I think JSS brings some incredible diversity to this show. Being an old fart, I would love to hear more of the Yngwie stuff, but I am excited for this. I think it is going to go over well Glenn.

    Lane said it as well as possible. Nicely done.

    Thank you, Glenn, for being so good to us.

    Yes and no about Yngwie....he was/is incredibly influential, but let's be honest, he basically took what Ritchie Blackmore was doing and pushed it to a ridiculous degree. Kinda like Jimi Hendrix...he was pretty much doing what Buddy Guy was doing at the time but a lot louder with much more distortion.

    Back to JSS....man, I wish I had a ticket just to see Soto. I got the chance to see him with Journey, but to see him solo would be awesome. He's got such an incredible catalog of music....any of it would be great to witness live.

    Since about the only Soto I'm familiar with is his work with Yngwie, I request that he plays Marching Out in its entirety!

    I'm seriously regretting not getting tickets to this show. Adding Saxon and Armored Saint, then Evergrey and now Jeff Scott Soto. What a great talent. I absolutely loved the work he did with Takara though I doubt he'd cover anything with his discography he has to choose from. Couple of my favorite tunes.
