Do you mean that he's trying to look as "ripped" as Eddie? That might be a bit of a stretch for Malmsteen. I think Eddie might be benefiting from his asian genes for that "Bruce Lee" , zero percent bodyfat look.

I'm sure his new weight loss will now allow those "certain people" to actually appreciate his playing now :)

certain people - defined: those who totally lack the ability to actually hear what a guitarist plays, or how good a guitarist is. Instead, they base their judgement on what the guitarist looks like, or, what others say about them.

I say good for Yngwie. Hauling aroung extra weight isn't healthy. I should know, I used to be 50 lbs heavier when I was in high school.
Glad he's taking care of himself.

I hope I'm not considered a CERTAIN PERSON, as I believe I have the ability to appreciate art, whether the artist is a twig or a tub. :icon_thum

No way, man! I was just commenting on those who continuously say that Yngwie sucks. I could never finger out why(or how) anyone could say this. For the most part, it seems like he is getting dissed because of his weight. That's such a crock.

Here's the link to the replies the news of his weight loss got (some of those people really suck):

Glad to see you are still posting DB! As for Yngwie, he is in the current power on (Roland free mag) and he doesn't look particularly thin in there - so I guess he has either lost weight very recently or this is an old phot. Either way I love the guys playing. By far the most aggressive player I have ever heard and he is very funny too; be it intentional or not :D
