MALMSTEEN MONDAY: A CLASSIC BALLAD

30

For this week’s edition of Malmsteen Monday we’ll dial it down a notch but by no means relent on the fun. “Forever One” from 1994’s The Seventh Sign, showed Ying-Ying’s soft and tender side, and the video showed his desire to always be the center of attention despite poor Michael Vescera’s strong vocal performance. I’m mystified (but titillated) by the mysterious broad in the leather jacket, stone-washed jeans and studded bra; chicks like this were the only reason anyone watched hair metal videos in 1994. If you can’t wait to get your shred on, the ball-ripping solo starts at around 2:50 (complete with acoustic shred intro!)
