Now, on December 10, “Concert for Ronnie Montrose – A Celebration of His Life in Music” will officially be released on DVD.
According to the official press release, some of rock and roll’s finest came together in San Francisco’s Regency Ballroom to celebrate Montrose’s life last April at a concert dedicated to “Ronnie classics.”
Among them were his former band mates from Montrose and Gamma, including Sammy Hagar, Denny Carmassi, Bill Church and Joe Satriani, as well as a slew of other musicians he’s worked with.
Journey’s Neal Schon, Ricky Phillips of Styx, Steve Smith, Tesla and more are counted among the colleagues who joined in to remember Montrose’s 40-year career performing and producing music.
