Brief History: John Macaluso gained the attention and favor of guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen, using the first ARK album as the platform to jump to his next project. Yngwie flipped over John’s playing and loved ARK so much that he instantly hired John to fly down to Florida to rehearse and record Alchemy. It was this album that proved be a benchmark for John, having a drum solo on the record and being the only drummer ever to record a drum solo on an Yngwie Malmsteen album. John spends three years recording four albums with Malmsteen, spanning multiple world tours. After his tenure with the Swedish guitar god, John reunited with former ARK members to write and record music until the band’s split in 2003. Ark has reformed with new members and is working on a new album. More news to come...
