Ronnie Montrose Remembered was most definitely a night to remember in more ways than one. Hosted by Montrose singer Keith St. John, along with Leighsa Montrose, the late giuitarist's wife, the show highlighted the music of Ronie Montrose, played by his contemporaries, former bandmates and players he influenced. As the photos below attest, there were some heavyweights on the stage that night to pay tribute, including Brad Whitford (Aerosmith), Steve Stevens (Billy Idol), Gilby Clarke (Guns N’ Roses), Brad Gillis (Night Ranger), Tracii Guns (LA Guns), Jeff Young (Magdeth), Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake), Jeff Scott Soto (Yngwie Malmsteen), David Ellefson (Megadeth), Derek St. Holmes (Ted Nugent), Marc Bonilla (Keith Emerson Band, Toy Matinee), Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge), Jimmy Degrasso (Black Star Riders), Travis Davis (Keith Emerson Band). and Brad Lang (Y&T).
