Unhappy r.i.p. Montrose

First Davy Jones, now Montrose. Not a good week for music.

"Rock guitarist Ronnie Montrose, who formed the band that bore his name with ex-Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar, died yesterday (March 4) at the age of 64.

It is believed that the cause of death was related to the prostate cancer he had been diagnosed with in 2007."

Prayers for repose of his soul.

So, combined with Whitney Houston...does that make the three...in the old saw that they tend to go in threes?

hey you're right. I have noticed that with celebrities it's always in groups of 3's. I'm sure it's coincidence more than anything but all the same it's odd.

I am embarrassed to say, I don't know who he is. I was even a teen-ager during his prime.

Here is some more information about his career.

Quote:
Mr. Montrose, a San Francisco native, got his first break when he was hired to play guitar on Van Morrison's 1971 album, "Tupelo Honey." His career as a sideman continued with Boz Scaggs, Herbie Hancock and the Edgar Winter Group, playing on the hits "Frankenstein" and "Free Ride."

But his greatest success came with his own band, Montrose, which he formed in 1973. The original lineup featured [Sammy] Hagar on vocals and released two Led Zeppelin-inspired albums considered rock classics, "Montrose," and 1974's "Paper Money." The hits "Bad Motor Scooter," "Rock Candy" and "Space Station No. 5" became FM radio staples.

The group continued to release albums after Hagar left to pursue a solo career and eventually front Van Halen. In 1979, Mr. Montrose went on to try commercial hard rock with Gamma and made several serious solo records.
