Please remember the great Ronnie Montrose. (RIP)
I first found his music from the group Montrose, but came to realize he was more than a one group sensation.
Remember Edgar Winter "They Only Come Out At Night"? "Frankenstein". Yes, Ronnie played on that one. Several Montrose albums. I was pleased to hear a portion of one of their songs on "My Name Is Earl". I think it was, "Rock Candy", there was at that time, a little know singer named, Sam Hagar. He would at a later point, be known as Sammy Hagar, (The Red Rocker), then as the front man for Van Halen.
I think I remember him being in the running for, guitar player of the year, a long time ago when names such as Robin Trower, Jeff Beck, Eddie Van-Halen, Brian May would regularly appear in the running.
I'm going to play his works tonight, starting with Montrose, first lp. I'm Hot Sweet & Sticky!!!!!
