It’s being reported in guitar media circles that the Swedish government is considering using the image of the country’s favorite shredding son, Yngwie Malmsteen, on a bank note. As Blabbermouth tells it:

The Swedish government is in the process of reducing the number of coins in circulation by replacing them with bank notes (and) Yngwie Malmsteen is one of the names being mentioned to grace one of the new notes, which will be decided later this month.

I hope this doesn’t affect his ego.

Don’t you think an Yngwie krona would be a nice companion to his business card?
