Ronnie Montrose ft. Ricky Phillips & Eric Singer - 10x10


Recommended Posts

Pretty good tune.

From ultimateclassicrock.com:

Ronnie Montrose fans are in for an exciting fall. His long-awaited final album10X10, now has a release date, and two classic albums with Montrose will also be expanded and reissued.

Montrose was at work on a guest-packed new studio project before his 2012 death, with a core trio rounded out byStyx bassist Ricky Phillips and Kiss drummer Eric Singer. Phillips has now completed work on 10X10, enlisting a group of Montrose's friends and collaborators that includes Sammy Hagar, Glenn Hughes, Phil Collen, Tommy Shawand Edgar Winter – the latter of whom played guitar on Montrose's 1972 album, They Only Come Out at Night. You can hear "Color Blind," featuring Hagar and Lukather, above.

"His songs still have the fire and angst of a young rebel, but with some added wisdom and foresight voiced in his own unique language of 'guitar-speak,'" Phillips says in a press release. "On 10X10, we hear Ronnie at the top of his game, from the opening crunch guitar of 'Heavy Traffic,' all the way to the closing song 'I'm Not Lying,' which was Ronnie's tip of the hat to his friend Robin Trower."

You can see a complete list of collaborators below. 10X10 is due on Sept. 29, just weeks before Rhino releases deluxe editions of 1973's Montrose and 1974's Paper Money on Oct. 13. These double-disc reissues include newly remastered versions of the original albums, which featured Hagar on vocals, plus bonus discs of previously unreleased material.
