Some Ronnie Montrose...R.I.P.

Would never claim to an expert on Ronnie Montrose's music. Sorry to hear he passed. ....





    The first Montrose incarnation featured Sammy Hagar on vocals. A lot of hard rockers site their work together as an influence  (ironically, even Van Halen!)



                                                   "Bad Motor Scooter"





                                        "Rock the Nation" is a pretty cool tune
                                          




                                            "Rock Candy"

                              

The first I heard of Montrose's music was in the 80's. He had the band Gamma who still could rock hard, but also moved in a more AOR/melodic rock direction.

                                           "Meanstreak"






 Having  Mitchell Froom on keyboards added a different dimension to their music.

                                                    "Right the First Time"

                
                            

                                                     "Stranger"
