    I still get goosebumps to his opening riffs on "Space Station # 5".

    Glad Sammy put the band back together for a few shows in 2004 -5 (thanks for link Cabo Chris)..

    Would be cool if Chickenfoot did a tribute show in Bay area before their tour cranks up. Metallica, Neil Shon, Y & T, maybe our hero Ed?

    I think Montrose influenced allot of guys in the day..

    Official website statement states, "And true to form, he chose his own exit the way he chose his own life." Sounds like suicide to me.

    Sad, sad news. That first Montrose album is a monster... I don't know if there's another debut album that strong. It's a shame we never got a reunion tour/album from these guys.

    RIP Ronnie.

    A message from Sammy, on redrocker.com:

    "Ronnie Montrose gave me my first break as a songwriter, as a front man, as a recording artist, as a touring artist, and for that I will always be grateful.

    I was looking forward to a reunion for my birthday bash in Cabo with Denny, Bill and Ronnie - one of the few bands from that era where all four original members were still able to do it. It's a shame to lose Ronnie and I'm so sorry for his loved ones. Rest in peace."

    Van Halen with David Lee Roth honoring Montrose:



    Not often that you hear Dave singing a Sammy song, btw.
