THE GREAT RONNIE MONTROSE

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-NOV 29, 2019…TODAY LET’S REMEMBER THE BAY AREA’S RONNIE MONTROSE. BORN NOVEMBER 29, 1947 TODAY HE WOULD HAVE BEEN 72 YEARS OF AGE. THIS GUY WAS A HELL OF A GUITARIST AND A GREAT GUY. RONNIE MONTROSE FRONTED THE BANDS MONTROSE (1973-1977 & 1987) AND GAMMA (1979-1983 & 2000) AND PERFORMED A TON OF SESSION WORK WITH ARTISTS LIKE BOZ SCAGGS, GARY WRIGHT, EDGAR WINTER, SAMMY HAGAR, JOHNNY WINTER, THE NEVILLE BROTHERS, AND VAN MORRISON. AND LET ME JUST SAY HERE AND NOW THE FIRST MONTROSE RECORD IS STILL ONE OF THE MOST UNDERRATED HEAVY METAL ALBUMS IN ROCK HISTORY.

RONNIE DIED IN 2012 AT THE AGE OF 64. RIP RONNIE

HERE’S SOME CLASSIC MONTROSE
