When Ronnie Montrose passed away on March 3, 2012, friends and musicians immediately wondered what they could do to pay homage to one of rock's all-time legendary - and influential - guitarists. The result was some of music's most renowned artists uniting for a concert only a month and a half later (April 27) and performing Ronnie classics throughout the evening - which will now make its official DVD release on December 10, 2013, Concert for Ronnie Montrose - A Celebration of His Life In Music.

Recorded in San Francisco at the historic Regency Ballroom and mixed in 5.1 surround sound, the DVD features performance by Ronnie's past band members in MONTROSE (Sammy Hagar, Denny Carmassi, Bill Church with Joe Satriani), GAMMA (Davey Pattison, Denny Carmassi and Glenn Letsch with Marc Bonilla), performing both groups' hits.

Additionally, Ronnie's colleagues and people he mentored and produced over the 40 years of his career are featured as well, including Neal Schon (JOURNEY), Ricky Phillips (STYX), Steve Smith (ex-JOURNEY), Ed Roth, Jimmy Paxson (Stevie Nicks), Jeff Watson (ex-NIGHT RANGER), TESLA, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer (Kiss), Eric Martin (MR. BIG), and more.

The DVD will also include interviews, bonus features, a photo gallery, and an additional set of Ronnie's hits by an all-star band featuring Chuck Terpo, Mario Cipollina, Tal Morris, Dave Meniketti and the members of Y&T. This was recorded and filmed at Bob Weir's TRI Studios.

A trailer can be viewed below.

The iconic and legendary Ronnie Montrose has been called the Father Of American Hard Rock - an innovator and an incendiary guitar genius. In his short time with Van Morrison, Ronnie created the iconic guitar riff for the classic song “Wild Nights”. In the EDGAR WINTER GROUP he left even a bigger mark with his catchy heavy-handed riffs on songs like “Free Ride” and “Frankenstein”. But it would be his self-titled release, Montrose that would become the cornerstone of American hard rock. This debut in 1973 crafted such classics as "Rock the Nation”, "Bad Motor Scooter", and "Space Station #5". It laid the ground work and became the template for bands like VAN HALEN and countless subsequent musicians. His musical journey lead him to the creation of GAMMA where he crafted songs like "Voyager", "Thunder And Lighting" and "Ready For Action". Ronnie was always searching and reinventing himself musically. Venturing through a brief instrumental period he brought us both "Open Fire" and his masterpiece version of "Town Without Pity".

And now, fans will be able to experience the music of Ronnie once again, with the new DVD, Concert for Ronnie Montrose - A Celebration of His Life In Music.
