The first Montrose album is my favorite hard rock album of all time. This album influenced many future hard rockers and introduced Sammy Hagar, Denny Carmassi,Bill Church and Ronnie to the world in a profound way. I liked the comment from an Audio Specialist installer (about 20 years old)

Often cited by many bands such as Van Halen as a major influence on themselves and early 70's basic hard rock in general.

One of Sammy Hagar's first bands. Very influencial, underground, hard rock. Bands like Iron Maiden have covered them.

If the Rock Hall inducts replacement members Denny Carmassi and Mark Andes with the original 6 members of Heart, Denny Carmassi will become the second former member of Montrose to be inducted into the Rock Hall. Sammy Hagar was the first with Van Halen.

Latest word is that the sisters have decided to exclude Mark Andes and Denny Carmassi from the Rock Hall. No reason given at this time.
