Sammy Hagar recording new music with former Montrose bandmates
Sammy Hagar has posted a photo of himself with fellow original Montrose bandmembers Bill Church (bass) and Denny Carmassi (drums) along with caption "Denny and Bill in town. We recorded some new music last week. It was amazing. We still have that Montrose chemistry. Keep ya all posted."

Legendary Montrose guitarist Ronnie Montrose was found dead at his home in Brisbane, California on March 3, 2012 from a self-inflected gunshot wound. The autopsy also revealed his blood-alcohol level was at 0.31-percent when he died — nearly four times the legal limit in California. Montrose had been battling prostate cancer for five years.

At the time of Montrose's death, Hagar told Rolling Stone: "We were planning a Montrose reunion for my birthday in Cabo. Montrose, the whole band, has not been there. Denny's been there, Bill's been there, Ronnie's been there — but (the whole band together) has never been there. I said to Ronnie, 'Come on, man. We're all getting old. Let's do this again while we can.' And he was in, we were all in. It's fucked up that those songs will never be played by those four members again. That's so weird to me. It's like the end of an era. Songs can go forever, but we can't. It's trippy. Ronnie Montrose gave me my first break as a songwriter, as a front man, as a recording artist, as a touring artist, and for that I will always be grateful."
