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!

I am reading cut the hair, pathetic old fart, etc... etc...but guess the pathetic old fart who needs a hair cut just won 400k can any of you say that? I have had the pleasure to meet Yngwie and he is a very down to earth person so STOP judging appearances. He has big time talent people only wish to have.

the truth    

Does anyone REALLY expect the majority of the TMZ audience to know who Yngwie Malmsteen is? This is, for the most part, an audience whose realm of musical knowledge more than likely consists of Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, and whichever flavor-of-the-day made a name for themselves on (insert random crappy reality TV show).

30. First of all, I could'nt believe that Yngwie is even on this site! And to the nay sayers......when you see the rest of roll our eyes when you talk about how talented that slut Madonna is or whoever your flavor of the month is, guys like this are why! He's a f*&king legend!!! Not to mention easily one of the greatest guitar players the rock/metal world has ever seen. How many of your pop stars could pull of an album with a full symphony, WITH ONLY A GUITAR? His work has stood the test of time, and always will.

And I'll still be laughing when Yngwie is still putting out great albums and all of you are denying you ever liked Justin Timberlake!!!

Ha ha ha this is so true Yngwie Malmsteen is a living legend a musical genius!! I too laugh at the shallow comments the same folks that made Nsync and backstreet boys stars only to pretend they were never bought there stuff and they have the gall to laugh at Yngwie! LOL you mindless sheep do not know what TRUE music is! You let MTV tell you how to live you are weak. Yngwie Rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
