SAN FRANCISCO -- Rock guitarist Ronnie Montrose, who formed the band that bore his name and performed with some of rock's heavy hitters, has died.

His booking agent, Jim Douglas, says Montrose died Saturday at his home in Millbrae, Calif. He was 64.

Douglas says Montrose had been in declining health for some time, battling prostate cancer and what Douglas termed "personal demons."

In addition to forming his own band in 1973, Montrose performed with a number of rockers, including Sammy Hagar, Herbie Han****, Van Morrison, Boz Scaggs and the Edgar Winter Group. Douglas says Montrose was working on releasing a DVD and starting a tour that would have taken him across the U.S.

Montrose is survived by his wife, Leighsa, as well as a son, a daughter and five grandchildren.

Ronnie Montrose Suicide: Coroner Rules Guitarist Took His Own Life

04/10/12 10:42 PM ET AP

A coroner has ruled that Ronnie Montrose took his own life.

SAN FRANCISCO — The death of rock guitarist Ronnie Montrose, who formed an eponymous band in the 1970s and played with heavy hitters such as Van Morrison and Herbie Hancock, has been ruled a suicide.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports ( ) the San Mateo County coroner has concluded that Montrose took his own life last month at his home in Millbrae, Calif. http://bit.ly/Hqcl67

His widow, Leighsa Montrose, tells the newspaper that her 64-year-old husband was tormented by clinical depression for much of his life. She says he suffered from severe self-doubt that caused him to harshly evaluate his performances, even on nights audiences gave him multiple standing ovations.

Leighsa Montrose says her husband left no suicide note. She says she was bewildered by his decision to take his life, especially since he spent two years being successfully treated for prostate cancer.
