Ronnie Montrose joined the Heart of Gold band after a long battle with prostrate cancer, and what an addition he is, I remember in 72 when Montrose hit the airwaves with this unknown singer and those awesome guitar riffs, he will be missed.
Davy Jones singer for the Monkees, amerika's answer to the beatles, the "cute" monkey. I remember back in 67, I was just a wee lad and was a big monkey fan, my older brother and I went to see the Monkees, I had no idea who Jimi Hendrix was, being but 13 I was one of those "Davy, Mickey screamers", but my brother had heard him and he was there to see Jimi, I wanted Davy. Then, I heard Hendrix and it was a life changing moment. I would never listen to surf music again.
Rest in Peace
Both gone before their time.
