Sammy Hagar Records New Music With Original Montrose Members

YouTube

It was this time last year (March 3) that we lost legendary guitarist Ronnie Montrose (who battled prostate cancer for five years) to a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The last time the surviving original Montrose members were in the studio together was back in 1973. After forty years, Sammy Hagar joined original bassist Bill Church and original drummer Denny Carmassi last week to record some new music.

After the death of Ronnie Montrose last year, Sammy Hagar told Rolling Stone “We were planning a Montrose reunion for my birthday in Cabo. Montrose, the whole band, has not been there. Denny’s been there, Bill‘s been there, Ronnie‘s been there; but (the whole band together) has never been there. I said to Ronnie, ‘Come on, man. We’re all getting old. Let’s do this again while we can.’ And he was in, we were all in. It’s f***ed up that those songs will never be played by those four members again. That’s so weird to me. It’s like the end of an era. Songs can go forever, but we can’t. It’s trippy. Ronnie Montrose gave me my first break as a songwriter, as a front man, as a recording artist, as a touring artist, and for that I will always be grateful.”

Hagar recently posted “Denny and Bill in town. We recorded some new music last week. It was amazing. We still have that Montrose chemistry. Keep ya all posted.”
