Death guitarist, other musicians, for whom Montrose was a friend and idol:
Myles [Kennedy] told me that Ronnie Montrose left. Fucking grief . 'Montrose' is one of the best rock and roll. He was a great inspiration for me. R.I.P, man.
R.I.P Ronnie Montrose! I am sad to hear that. I had the pleasure to play with it somehow between 2005 and 2007. Very energetic and crazy wild man guitarist. Many learned from him! Rest in peace.
I have just heard that my dear departed friend, Ronnie Montrose, is dead. I have no words. RIP, brother ... you will be missed in Hughes.
