Another rock soldier, guitarist Ronnie Montrose, passed away yesterday after a lengthy battle with prostate cancer. He was underrated, though really quite a brilliant, dexterous player. Adept at various styles, Montrose played with many A-list artists and always raised the game of those around him with his chops.
Remember when people could actually play live without all of the fakery?
Here is a great reminder: "Bad Motor Scooter" from 1974.
