    Default Sammy Recording with Ex-Montrose Rhythm Section

    http://www.blabbermouth.net/news.asp...sitemID=186999

    Sammy Hagar has posted a photo of himself with fellow original MONTROSE bandmembers Bill Church (bass) and Denny Carmassi (drums) along with caption "Denny and Bill in town. We recorded some new music last week. It was amazing. We still have that MONTROSE chemistry. Keep ya all posted."

    Legendary MONTROSE guitarist Ronnie Montrose was found dead at his home in Brisbane, California on March 3, 2012 from a self-inflected gunshot wound. The autopsy also revealed his blood-alcohol level was at 0.31-percent when he died — nearly four times the legal limit in California. Montrose had been battling prostate cancer for five years.

    At the time of Montrose's death, Hagar told Rolling Stone: "We were planning a MONTROSE reunion for my birthday in Cabo. Montrose, the whole band, has not been there. Denny's been there, Bill's been there, Ronnie's been there — but (the whole band together) has never been there. I said to Ronnie, 'Come on, man. We're all getting old. Let's do this again while we can.' And he was in, we were all in. It's fucked up that those songs will never be played by those four members again. That's so weird to me. It's like the end of an era. Songs can go forever, but we can't. It's trippy. 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."

    Me neither. The cancer must have been too much for him, I guess. Real sad.

    People had kinda said Ronnie struggled with internal issues for years, never happy or content with where he was at. Some say that would explain his shifts in musical tastes and ideas over time.

    well when Ronnie first died it wasn't revealed that it was self inflicted, it didn't actually come out for a week or 10 days after and I don't think it was officially announced. I think Sam might have mentioned it during interviews and statements but it was just in passing, no one made a big deal of it, it's almost like alot of people around him knew he had alot of really bad things going on and this was just a natural step for Ronnie's tortured soul.

    Seeing Sammy with Denny and Bill (nice look BTW) makes me really want him to reconcile with Jesse Harms as well for this alleged new album. I always thought they were a great song writing duo.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what was the falling out? or, was there one at all? I thought Jesse wanted to do his own thing. And got sick of the beach party music sam wanted....

    Might have been tired of touring, but I also heard/ read he was upset about Sam going back to VH. A few years back Sam did a benefit for a little girl that Jesse was also supposed to attend. Last I heard, Jesse has a music store in Novato(sp) Ca. Sam and Jesse were great together!
