In April 2012, rockers including Sammy Hagar, Joe Satriani, Neal Schon, and members of Ronnie Montrose’s bands Montrose and Gamma convened at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco to pay tribute to the late guitarist (who passed away in March of that year).
On December 10th, the night will be commemorated with the release of Concert for Ronnie Montrose – A Celebration of His Life In Music on DVD and Blu-ray.
As well as live footage from the all-star performances that took place throughout the night, the DVD/Blu-ray set will also feature appearances from a number of rock n’ roll luminaries, including Ted Nugent, KISS, and more:
The DVD also includes interviews, bonus features, a photo gallery, and an additional set of Ronnie’s hits by an all-star band featuring Chuck Terpo, Mario Cipollina, Tal Morris, Dave Meniketti and the members of Y&T. This was recorded and filmed at Bob Weir’s TRI Studios.
Here’s the film’s official trailer:
Coincidentally, our upcoming November issue will feature a lengthy interview with Sammy Hagar and some of Montrose’s band mates – so be on the lookout for that soon!
