YNGWIE MALMSTEEN Discusses The Infamous 'Unleash The Fucking Fury' Tape

Swedish guitarist YNGWIE MALMSTEEN has spoken to Norway's Metal Express about the inspiration behind his new album's title ("Unleash the Fury") — the infamous "unleash the fucking fury" tape (mp3), which first surfaced exclusively on BLABBERMOUTH.NET in December 2002 — 14 years after it was allegedly made.

The now-legendary recording was originally said to have been made during a translatlantic flight to Tokyo, Japan after Malmsteen's unruly behavior (including his alleged gay-bashing remarks) resulted in a woman passenger pouring a glassful of water on the guitarist.

A member of Yngwie's touring entourage (believed to be former YNGWIE keyboardist Jens Johansson), who was traveling with Malmsteen at the time, had a tape recorder running and managed to catch Yngwie's reaction on tape immediately after the guitarist was "assaulted" by the offended passenger.

Listen to the audio (Windows Media) of Malmsteen's explanation for how the MP3 recording was made and the events that preceded the alleged incident back in 1988.
