RIP Ronnie Montrose

Posted on Ronnie Montrose’s official Facebook page just now:

Ronnie Montrose
1947-2012

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.

    We had recently learned a few of his songs and played them at our wedding last month…
    MONTROSE is a rock n roll legend and a huge influence to guitar players everywhere…
    He will be missed….
