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)
who heard the album in the car stereo. He said "Dude, who is this band? My friends and I were listening to it when we worked on your system, It totally rocks, we have to buy it!"

Often cited by many bands such as Van Halen as a major influence on themselves and early 70's basic hard rock in general.
It would be nice to see journyman guitarist Ronnie Montrose be rewared for all his various contributions,but it most likely won't happen via TRRHOF.

I still vote yes though.

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.

This makes no sense because, like it or hate it, this period was a successful segment (the 80's Heart) for the band, and they continue to include this era in their biography.
