Yngwie Malmsteen spoke with Artisan News recently about the upcoming Guitar Gods 2014 tour and the departure of Uli Jon Roth (Scorpions) from the bill due to Visa issues. "I believe it was some work visa issue, which is a shame. It would've been great. I go way back with him. He's a dear friend of mine. I love him. But we'll have to do it next time I guess."

Guitar Gods 2014 also features Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (Guns N' Roses), and Gary Hoey. Guitar Center has announced a number of special Q&A; and autograph signings in support of the tour as detailed below.
