Although he wasn't as well known by the general public as many other famous guitarists, Ronnie Montrose was a GREAT musician and a dear friend of mine. He played with The Edgar Winter Band and then later formed his own band called "Montrose". I knew that he had been struggling with prostate cancer for the last few years, but yesterday, he lost his battle to that terrible disease. I will miss his warm personality, friendship and playing. RIP Brother Ronnie . . . You will not be forgotten http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rN0-CRDdsw4 "Wiz"
