PAUL GILBERT, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN To Record Album Of ELVIS Covers?

Former MR. BIG guitarist Paul Gilbert and Yngwie Malmsteen have discussed a possible collaboration — on an album of Elvis Presley covers!

"Swedish guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen was a big influence on my guitar playing when he exploded onto the heavy metal scene in the mid-'80's," Gilbert wrote on his official web site.

"Now I have the honor of appearing on the cover of Japan's Young Guitar magazine with him.

"I dressed as Elvis and put rhinestones and fringe all over my Ibanez PGM guitar for the occasion.

"I asked Yngwie about doing an album together someday of all Elvis songs, and he seemed to like the idea.

"We could call it YNG and The KING.

"Move over, Celine and Barbra. Here comes a REAL duet."
