Could be, could be. Do you really think so?
Didn’t hurt...I’ll say that.
I think Eric Johnson had a big impact as well.
Actually, in the early days, Leo Fender gave a ton of stuff out for free, usually as a live testbed....
Anybody who played a Fender though the 80's had as much a part in Fender's success as that guy.
Maybe more, since we actually invested in them.
I think Yngwie is full of crap on this one. He thinks his album in 1984 saved Fender? Poppycock.
Stevie Ray Vaughn released Texas Flood in 83 and Couldn't Stand the Weather in 84. Clapton released Money and Cigarettes in 83. In 1988 Fender released both Yngwie and Clapton models and i can guaran-dang-tee a lot more people bought Fenders because of Clapton.
At least he's humble.....................
Without denying his influence I think most of those influenced by him bought Ibanez and Kramer’s etc. I’d think that the comment citing SRV is more apposite.
Be interesting though to do the study ...

its all about SRV, Yngvie is a nozzle tug and I feel ashamed I play his Viper acoustic
nozzle tug...I'm writing that one down
Isn’t he one of those guys that ruined guitar music for a little while?
Love Eric Johnson He just preformed in Texas for the Guitar International thing this month. It's on YouTube.
I'm not a big Ingwie fan. I like a lot of shredding stuff Eric johnson, Jeff Beck, Satriani, Even Vai. Never really got into the Neo Classical stuff. Countless Others have contributed to Fender's success.
The list goes on and on.....and on.....
I resem...nt that comment...
His first album was with Alcatraz. I love Yngwie, but no.
Like Paul said to the demon in the bible "Stevie Ray and Clapton I know, but who the hell is Yngwie?"
I would say that Yngvie probably had an impact on those that knew of him. Was he THE savior of Fender? Like others, I doubt that it was all about him, because there were too many other great players that were playing a Strat.
I didn't play a Strat until the early 2000's, so I'll never get any credit for lifting Fender's profile. Hey, I may not play real well . . . but I did buy a couple of new Strats, and bought a couple of used Strats to help other players buy a new one. Yeah, that's all I got.
It was really Hank Marvin......
as long as you all agree Buddy Holly did nothing for the stratocaster.
didn't Knopfler play a Strat in the 80's as well? certainly got more air time tham Malmsteen... Maybe Blackmore and that famous intro riff should be considered too?
