This day found me going to a show that included Santana and a band that I had never heard of called Gamma.  I managed to work my way inside during Gamma's sound check and they were playing the intro to "Ready for Action" over and over again.  If you've ever heard the intro to that song you will know that it takes a real heavy guitarist to play it.  I soon realized  that this amazing riff was coming from the great Ronnie Montrose.  Once I realized who he was, I made sure I was parked right in front of his side of the stage for his show later that night.  He was almost sitting in my lap when I took my photos.  After he was done with his opening set, he came back out and jammed with Carlos Santana.  Two great guitarists on the same stage playing for me and I have a photo to remember it with.
