The best heavy metal duo of all time
Young Yngwie Malmsteen and Graham Bonnet together in the same band,
Alcatrazz circa 1983-1984
Yngwie at his peak untouchable, the biggest prodigy of heavymetal/rock guitar, only michael schenker in his UFO early days(1974-1977) is comparable.
Yngwie was only 20 in the video..
And what about Bonnet? after Rainbow and Michael Schenker group he tried with alcatrazz.. at this peak one of the best voices of Metal ever, right up there in the mount rushmore with Dio, Rob Halford and Bruce dickinson in My humble opinion.
Bonett was also working with Chris impellitteri, another good guitarrist, although dont bring me at the same emotional state of peak malmsteen, Schenker or uli jon roth.Great stuff definitely but Uli Jon Roth is way up there and Yngwie took a lot from him directly. And I'd also put Blackmore with Rainbow in there as well, again the other source for Malmsteen. And nothing tops Blackmore and Dio for this music (Uli with Klaus Meine is up there too).
Other guitarists I like in the metal idiom include Vinnie Moore, Chris Poland, Michael Schenker, Greg Howe, Fred Akesson, Fred Thordendal, Per Nilsson, Emil Werstler, Michael Romeo, Vai, John Norum, Gary Moore...
Bonnett is also great and deserves a spot on top like pretty much all the vocalists who worked with Blackmore who was amazing in this regard.
