RIP – Ronnie Montrose

RIP – Ronnie Montrose who has passed away aged 64.
From his official website:
‘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.’

Fellow rock musicians reactions from Twitter:

Glenn Hughes (@glenn_hughes): Just heard that my good friend Ronnie Montrose has passed away….I’m speechless…RIP my brother…you will be missed @ the Hughes’s…GH
 
Peter Frampton (@peterframpton): Saddened to hear the passing of friend Ronnie Montrose. He was a wonderful person & an amazing guitar player, I will miss you dear Ronnie.
