I wonder if a group of art consultants were called in to come up with a cover for this album back in 1986? If so then maybe the conversation went something like this.
Art Consultant 1-What should the cover of the new Yngwie album look like?
Art Consultant 2-Well, the first one had his guitar in front of fire, the second album had him playing his guitar.So this album should have him uh...fighting a dragon.
Art Consultant 1-With a sword?
Art Consultant 2-Don't be silly, he would fight the dragon with his guitar of course. I saw Dio fighting a dragon with a sword on his last tour and he's just a itty-bitty guy so anyone could use a sword. So a rising star like Yngwie would use something cool like his guitar. Besides he's a guitar virtuoso.
Art Consultant 1-Guitar virtuoso? What does that mean?
Art Consultant 2-Dude,that means not only can he play ripping solos, but he could fight dragons by shooting blasts out of his guitar.
Art Consultant 1-I don't know, it sounds cheesy.
Art Consultant 2-Trust me.Yngwie is going to as big as Hendrix or Eddie so he needs a big, exciting cover and this is it. People will love it. It's not like 21 years from now someone will be making fun of this album cover.
Or maybe it went something like that.
