Yngwie Malmsteen is one of the most influential and talented guitarists in the world. He grew up in Sweden and his classical style quickly became known throughout Europe. Yngwie's worldwide popularity grew when he joined Ron Keel and then later went on to be part of Alcatrazz. His solo career has no doubt brought him further fame and many talented musicians have had the chance to be part of his lineup.
The Trooper's Review:
"Rising Force" and "Marching Out" are two great metal albums of all time!

Zebra was a local band from Louisiana that started back in 1975. They were a three man band with one of the members, Guy, who was from Long Island and who had gone down to New Orleans for Mardi Gras and decided to stay permenantly. The three members came up with the groups name from a wall picture in a bar in New Orleans (The Boot). The picture had a woman riding a Zebra and so the band was born. They started out playing many lounges and bars in New Orleans and a few back in Long Island. Eventually they made a record and began getting air play from local stations like New Orleans WRNO (we're the rock of New Orleans). Their first LP became Atlantic Records fastest selling album in history, over 75,000 in the first week! The next few albums did not sell as well as the band had expected but they became famous enough to travel and tour all over most of the United States.
Zebra is still hard at work producing albums and still touring, although mainly throughout Louisiana and Long Island.
