Rock guitarist Ronnie Montrose had been in poor health from some time battling
prostate cancer. He died Saturday at his home in San Francisco.
Besides forming his own band in 1973, Montrose had performed with rock greats
including Van Morrison, Boz Scaggs, and Sammy Hagar.
His booking agent, Jim Douglas, said Montrose had been working on releasing
a DVD and plans for a tour across the United States.
