    Default Sammy at Ronnie Montrose Memorial

    So, just seen this one facebook. Original Montrose lineup will be performing at the Regency Ballrom in San Francisco.

    "A Concert For Ronnie Montrose - A Celebration of His Life In Music" will feature the original Montrose lineup (Sammy Hagar, vocals; Bill Church, bass; and Denny Carmassi, drums), performing the landmark first Montrose album, with special guest Joe Satriani on lead guitar. The original Gamma lineup (Davey Pattison, vocals; Glenn Letsch, bass; Denny Carmassi, drums) will also be on hand, with special guest Marc Bonilla on lead guitar. There will also be an All-Star band, composed of many of the great musicians that Ronnie played with over the years. Some of those confirmed artists include: Neal Schon from Journey, Steve Smith formerly from Journey, members of Tesla, Eric Martin from Mr. Big, Rickie Philips from Styx, Eric Singer from KISS, Tommy Thayer of KISS and Jimmy DeGrasso from Y & T and Alice Cooper."

    Sammy Hagar stated, "One of my top priorities this year was a Montrose reunion. Ronnie and I planned to do it in Cabo in October. I am so sad it won't happen, but on April 27th, Joe Satriani, Denny Carmassi, Bill Church and I are going to play the hell out of some Montrose!!!"

    Tickets are $55

    I think Sammy had some bitterness towards Ronnie in the past, hence why a full on Montrose reunion/album didn't happen. If I remember correctly, they did a few dates here and there, but nothing really came of it. I guess this is a better way for Sammy and fans to remember Ronnie that goes beyond words.
    If I told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about what I've gone through over the last 20 odd years, what it took to finally get where I am, people just wouldn't fucking believe it. So it's pointless. I now realize that I can't change people's minds, and I really don't want to or need to try. I'm at peace with it, and that's all that matters. - Edward Van Halen

    Love to hit this show.

    Great for those guys. I think it is the best way to honor the music and the man. Peolpe will love it. Too bad it didn't happen before Ronnie's passing.

    What a show that will be! I hope they broadcast it somehow or better yet- release it in some form like an album.
