Early Montrose footage

Killer footage. Sammy killing it. Ronnie was a fantastic guitarist, way ahead of his time.

Ditto, though I dig the 3rd album too. Gamma had so much potential. Criminally underappreciated. Brilliant.

"So much potential" sums up Ronnie Montrose to a "t".

Bailed on the Edgar Winter Group, at the height of their popularity. Fired Sammy Hagar, which basically torpedoed Montrose.

Ronnie had a good career, but it could've been so much more.

If anyone wants to hear another side of Ronnie Montrose's playing. He's great on this. Also Bill Church on bass here.

More Ronnie Montrose with Van Morrison. He plays some really nice stuff in this one.
