Ronnie Montrose ~ 1947-2012
On March 3rd, legendary rock guitarist Ronnie Montrose passed away, losing his five year battle with prostate cancer. He was 64 years old. The following message has been posted on Montrose’s officialwebsite:
“A few months ago, we held a surprise party for Ronnie Montrose’s 64th birthday. He gave an impromptu speech, and told us that after a long life, filled with joy and hardship, he didn’t take any of our love for granted. He passed today. He’d battled cancer, and staved off old age for long enough. And true to form, he chose his own exit the way he chose his own life. We miss him already, but we’re glad to have shared with him while we could.”
Jeff Young’s Music Without Boundaries airs Thursday nights at 7:11 pm PST/10:11 EST, and worldwide. Tune in live right on Facebook.
