Concert For Ronnie Montrose DVD
The “Concert For Ronnie Montrose - A Celebration Of His Life In Music ” will be released on DVD on December 10, 2013.
Following Ronnie’s death March 3, 2012, friends and musicians gathered at San Francisco’s Regency Ballroom six weeks later (April 27, 2012) to pay homage to one of rock's legendary and influential guitarists with a tribute concert.
The resulting DVD from the event features performance by Ronnie's past band members in Montrose (Sammy Hagar, Denny Carmassi, Bill Church with Joe Satriani), Gamma (Davey Pattison, Denny Carmassi and Glenn Letsch with Marc Bonilla), performing both groups' hits.
Ronnie's colleagues and people he mentored and produced over the 40 years of his career are featured as well, including Neal Schon (Journey) Ricky Phillips (Styx), Steve Smith (ex-Journey), Ed Roth, Jimmy Paxson (Stevie Nicks), Tesla, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer (KISS), Eric Martin (Mr. Big), and more. source
