Ronnie Montrose’s death was suicide

Although previously reported that legendary guitarist Ronnie Montrose lost his life after a long battle with prostate cancer, it is now reported that his death was a suicide. Although Montrose had suffered cancer, a San Francisco coroner has confirmed that Montrose had, in fact, died, from a gunshot wound to the stomach.

It is said that by the time of his death, Montrose had beaten prostate cancer, but was still wrestling “personal demons”.
