Montrose has returned full force, playing the tunes that rocked a nation with heart-thumping, foot-stomping, fist-pumping energy. The legend has been reborn. “a scorching outfit…” “incredibly impressive…” “part [Jeff] Beck, part Led Zeppelin, and three-fourths nitroglycerin…” “sheer rock and roll ecstasy.”

Lookout for Michael’s 2011 release TBA featuring Matt Abts and Andy Hess (Gov’t Mule) and Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones) on Magnatude.
Ol’ Cheeky Bastards
First generation punk-rocker Dave Dalton got bored and pissed off with the whole modern punk scene, and started busking “bastardized” Pogues tunes with bagpiper Sean Cummings.
