Leslie West has Passed On


I really liked Mountain, and later West, Bruce and Laing. Mountain was my second concert and I'll always have a soft spot. He was a very good guitarist with a sound of his own, and an interesting character too.

Another one gone. Rest in peace my friend.
So sad to learn of this! Leslie West - one of the BEST! 
First time I saw Leslie, he was onstage in the band The Vagrants, wearing a fishnet cape adorned with feathers (?!). I think as the opening act for The Jeff Beck Group at the original Fillmore Auditorium (Fall of '68). Leslie was playing a Les Paul Jr., which on him looked like a mandolin or ukulele ;-) .
One of my favorite concerts West, Bruce and Laing in Boston Ma just a killer show.

RIP Leslie. You were one of a kind.
