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 ;-) .
Yes Leslie was a Queens boy.The Vagrants played at Mather Christi HS my friends went there and it was a great show.I remember seeing Mountain at the big Randall's Island Show they played on a Sunday night to close out the Show...They were fantastic, Van Morrison, Rhinoceros also played.Last time I saw him was at the Paramount in Huntington NY it was sad seeing him in a wheelchair and missing a leg...RIP Lesile
