Concert tribute to rock guitar legend Ronnie Montrose on his way to DVD

When Ronnie montrose passed away on March 3, 2012, friends and musicians immediately wondered what they could do to pay homage to one of rock’s legendary and influential guitarists. The result was that some of the most renowned artists in music came together for a concert only a month and a half later (April 27) and performed Ronnie classics throughout the evening – which will now be released on official DVD on December 10, 2013, “Concert for Ronnie Montrose – A celebration of his life in music”.

Recorded in San Francisco in the historic Regency Ballroom and mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound, the DVD features performances by Ronnieformer members of the group in MONTROSE (Sammy Hagar, Denny carmassi, Bill Church with Joe satriani), GAMMA (Davey pattison, Denny carmassi and Glenn Letsch with Marc Bonilla), interpreting the hits of both groups.

The DVD will also include interviews, bonuses, a photo gallery and an additional set of Ronniehits from a celebrity group featuring Chuck terpo, Mario cipollina, Tal Morris, Dave meniketti and the members of Y&T. This was recorded and filmed at Bob weir’s TRI Studios.

The iconic and the legendary Ronnie montrose has been called the Father of American Hard Rock – an innovator and incendiary guitar genius. In no time with VAN MORRISON, Ronnie created the iconic guitar riff of the classic song “The wild nights”. In the EDGAR WINTER GROUP, he left an even bigger mark with his heavy-handed catchy riffs on songs like “Free ride” and “Frankenstein”. But it would be his eponymous release, “Montrose”, which would become the cornerstone of American hard rock. These beginnings in 1973 designed classics such as “Rock the nation”, “Bad scooter” and “Space station # 5”. He laid the groundwork and became the model for bands like VAN HALEN and countless later musicians. His musical journey led him to the creation of GAMMA where he created songs like “Traveler”, “Thunder and lightning” and “Ready for action”.

Ronnie was always looking and reinventing himself musically. Venturing into a brief instrumental period, he brought us both “Shoot” and its masterpiece version of “City without mercy”.
