Legendary Guitarist RONNIE MONTROSE Passes

March 4th, 2012

On March 3rd, legendary rock guitarist RONNIE MONTROSE passed away, losing his five year battle with prostate cancer. He was 64 years old.

The following message has been posted on Montrose’s official website:

“A few months ago, we held a surprise party for Ronnie Montrose’s 64th birthday. He gave an impromptu speech, and told us that after a long life, filled with joy and hardship, he didn’t take any of our love for granted.

He passed today. He’d battled cancer, and staved off old age for long enough. And true to form, he chose his own exit the way he chose his own life. We miss him already, but we’re glad to have shared with him while we could.”

Ronnie Montrose ~ 1947-2012

Ronnie headed his own bands as well as performing with a variety of musicians, including Sammy Hagar, Herbie Hancock, Van Morrison, The Beau Brummels, Boz Scaggs, Beaver & Krause, Gary Wright, Tony Williams, The Neville Brothers, Dan Hartman, Edgar Winter and Johnny Winter.
