born in Illinois. 5 year Navy veteran. Married for 26 years (not counting the first five when we just cohabited. 4 kids, 6 grandkids, 3 brothers 2 living, 2 sisters 1 living, a mother living, a father not living. 1 dog a labradoodle, and a current cat population of 2/6 (If you count feral kittens ) I've done a lot of jobs in my life, from shill at a carnival burlesque show to making medium caliber ammunition. I built inkjet printers, embedded computer boards, restored and repaired both cars, motorcycles and electronics. I read, write, and do arithmetic (albeit poorly) My wife claims that I have more useless knowledge than anyone on earth and resultingly no one will play trivial pursuit with me anymore. I do play pinohcle but due to my inability to cheat I don't win very often. Recently disabled I turned to Open Salon to re-engage my writing bug. Update add one cocker spaniel to the list and maybe just shoot me.

Get on your Bad Motor Scooter, Ronnie Montrose Dies at 64

Rate: 6 Flag

They say these things come in threes.  One of the seventies best guitarists, Ronnie Montrose, died yesterday from prostate cancer.  He is best known for his work with Montrose, a proto metal band that featured Sammy Hagar and Bill Church along with drummer Denny Carmassi.

The band was most famous for its debut release titled "Montrose" that featured a few tasty classic cut such as "Rock Candy" 

 "Rock the Nation" was another defining track for the band.
Of course the track that caught my ear so many years ago, "Bad Motor Scooter" 
2012 is supposed to be the end of the world, well I can't say if that is true but as I continue to witness my prime dissolve into the history books, I'd have to say that it isn't looking good for my world right now.
Montrose was the shit back then.
