Now That's the Yngwie to Dress for Court

6/3/2008 1:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hulk Hogan might've gotten away with a bandana in court, but do ya think this Mickey Rourkean get up is the way to sway a federal jury?

In case you're a little rusty on your speed metal guitar heroes, that's fleet-fingered Yngwie (that's ING-vay) Malmsteen, the sultan of the Strat, whom we caught outside of court in New York. He's in the midst of a long legal battle with his former manager over some cash he says he's owed.

We're told that the judge tolerated Yngwie's chesty display -- though curiously enough, women in sandals and shorts were turned away. And guess what -- he just won a $400K judgment! We the jury love chest hair!

My man, Yngwie J. Malmsteen, one of the greatest guitarists in rock history. Hope he wins his court battle.

Another idiot. When I was younger, going to court was a REALLY big deal and you dressed accordingly to show respect to the court. This is another prime example of hoe little respect people have for one another. My mother went to the trouble to teach me good manners and explained the use of good manners is the way you show care and respect to the people around you.

anyone who calls themselves a fan of rock music should KNOW "who the f*ck this guy is". if not, move the f' on, don't comment on someone or something you know NOTHING about, and go listen to movie theme songs. and foo fighter - go ask your idol dave grohl who yngwie is, he surely knows...and i'm sure respects the hell out of him.

Yngwie is not doubt one of the most talented guitar virtuoso's. For years, however, his music has been repetitive and mediocre. He was so much better when he was hungry, back when he released his first solo, and when he was with Alcatrazz. He should consider losing some weight and should consider moving the distortion button down to 5 from 11.

Love Yngwie, but dude, the early 90's metal craze is over. Too old to be dressing that way, my man, especially in court.
