Sammy Hagar Teases Reunion with Surviving Montrose Members

Sammy Hagar doesn’t “record albums” so much as he simply invites some bros over to have fun and get down — and it looks like one of his most recent recording sessions found him reconnecting with some old friends.

Hagar broke the news on his Facebook page (via Blabbermouth), posting a snapshot of himself (pictured above) with fellow former Montrose members Bill Church and Denny Carmassi above the caption, “Denny and Bill in town. We recorded some new music last week. It was amazing. We still have that Montrose chemistry. Keep ya all posted.”

Both Church and Hagar quit Montrose before the band finally imploded in 1976, and their records were never huge sellers, but they scored a handful of AOR hits that continue to enjoy mainstay status on classic rock stations — and more importantly, they remained friendly over the years, with the once-contentious relationship between Hagar and Montrose leader Ronnie Montrose eventually thawing to the point where they occasionally played together over the last 15 years of Montrose’s life.

Given Hagar’s recent comments about recording a new album in 2013, it’s easy to assume that his recent reunion with Church and Carmassi is a sign of what we can expect to hear from his next batch of material — but then again, given how frequently Hagar seems to be in the studio, this could very well be the beginning of yet another band project.
