First of all, the Montrose album came out in 1973. Second, while it's an excellent album, it bears very little resemblance to the Van Halen debut album. I suppose you are comparing that little 20 second riff at the beginning of "Bad Motor Scooter" to "Eruption"? And we all KNOW that Dave sounds nothing like Sammy.Mike Anthony's harmonies certainly had nothing to do with anything on the Montrose record. And Denny Carmassi's drum sound on the Montrose debut is far closer to John Bonham than it is Alex Van Halen.

Other than the fact that Templeman produced both albums and that both bands had the name of the guitarist, yet were led by the singers, I don't see many similarities.
