These two Montrose records were transforming when I first hard them. I got turned onto them by an old friend who played guitar and loved Michael Schenker and Ronnie Montrose. Plus, she knew I was a Sammy Hagar fan and he was the lead singer on both records.
Ronnie Montrose was great at what he did. He's one of those artists that should be way more recognized but the consolation for him not being super famous is the respect he's earned form within the industry and by the niche market who adored what he gave us.
