    Well with Christmas on the was, I've been brainstorming ideas for things I'd like for then or for later. So far my list is dominated by music, and this is to be honest, not a surprise.

    History of Malm Fu:
    In his autobiography "Much ado about Malmsteen", Yngwie relates the story of the early days of Malm Fu. During his time spent in Alcatrazz (having been convicted from the future for writing the song "Teaser") the young Malmsteen had a lot of time to think up devious escape plans and soon realised success hinged on honing his skills as a fighter as well as those of a guitar player.

    With this in mind he trained his body to breaking point - often for 56-57 hours a day - with the goal of avenging…
