Ronnie Montrose : "I've
finished rough mixes of tracks to present to 10 of my favorite
singers and have each one contribute lyrics and vocals to some
incredible “Power Trio” tracks that Ricky Phillips
(bassist – Babys, Bad English, and now Styx,) Eric Singer
(drummer - Alice Cooper and now KISS) and I recorded live in
the studio. We have most singers on board now, and I’ll list
them next month… I’ve contacted many of my old as well as
new friends, and am very excited to bring this assemblage of
talent together on one project… The title will be “Ronnie
Montrose and Friends – 10x10.”

Not only that, but the long in
progress Montrose record continues to take shape under Ricky
Phillips guidance. With much of the music completed, it's now
time to start recording lead vocals for the album, which is
set to be an all-star affair. Musically the line-up features
Ronnie Montrose on guitar, Ricky on bass and Eric Singer on
drums. Guest vocalists lined up to do a track each include
Sammy Hagar, Eric Martin, Tommy Shaw, Paul Stanley, Gregg
Rolie and more. The style of the album says Ricky "is old
school 70's heavy rock n roll...no overdubs, no
from KISSfaq (2005)
Paul Stanley was also suggested to be involved musically with
In July 2005 Paul announced that he expected to be recording the
guest vocals for a Montrose song. He said, "Barring any
unforeseen contractual problems, I'm hoping to do it since
Ronnie Montrose is a friend and killer guitar player. The first
album by the original lineup of Montrose is one of my all-time
The tracks Ronnie Montrose had done, that needed lead vocals,
had been recorded during the summer of 2003 with Eric Singer and
bassist Ricky Phillips.
Ronnie commented in 2004, "I'm now working on bringing 10 of my
favorite singers together to each contribute lyrics and vocals
to some incredible 'Power Trio' tracks that Ricky Phillips and
Eric Singer and I recorded live in the studio last summer.
The tentative title will be 'Ronnie Montrose and Friends -
10x10' and the complete list of singers will be listed here as
soon as everyone is on board... I've contacted many of my
friends, and am very excited to bring this assemblage of talent
together on one project" (RonnieMontrose.com).
Unfortunately, within a few months Paul Stanley's involvement
was cancelled, apparently because he wasn't happy with the song.
