I’m wondering which successful artist I’ve missed that’s managed to do the Malmsteen thing and isn’t Malmsteen, don’t mean to be a smart/dumb ass; from what I’ve found it’s only Joe Stump who comes close?
Anybody else out there? I guess I should say music in the vein of Malmsteen’s style, as in single-coil tone ( I know it’s stacked, but that sound ) into a raging marshall?
I’m thinking Vinnie Moore etc have a different sound, Joe Stump really gets close with his ‘original’ albums but I guess that’s a different discussion as plagiarism is an essential part of any and all music created these days. Hell, I had no idea Zimmerman was an outright ‘borrower’ as well. I digress.
edit: just feeling a bit lost, I think many people have been burned in this chase.
edit2: Just occurred to me it, Impellitteri is the only other one I can think of.
