RONNIE MONTROSE (1947-2012)

Ronnie Montrose
November 29, 1947 – March 3, 2012

Simply said one of the finest guitarists to have emerged in the 1970′s.  Montrose’s self titled debut album released in 1973 set the blue print for all hard rock albums that would follow.  Even today some 39 years later the album stands up as one of the best sounding and best crafted hard rock albums of all time.  Yes the band gave the world Sammy Hagar but its Ronnie’s massive riffs and classy lead work, not to mention one of the biggest and best Les Paul into a cooking Marshall tones you will ever hear that have made its mark on history.   Further works with the band that carried his name, along with solo records and Gamma all showcase a supremely talented musician, yet one who in recent years never got the attention he rightly deserved.

Ronnie Montrose rest in peace.
