Classic Rock Releases For October: Leslie West – ‘Still Climbing’ [VIDEO]
Leslie West and Mountain performed at Woodstock back in 1969, hence the name considering his size, his nickname was ‘Mountain’.
Leslie has a good share of solo albums, ‘Still Climbing’ will be his 15th. His new album is a comeback album, if you will; a crowning moment due in part to a partial leg amputation he had in 2011.
Leslie has been friends with Johnny Winter since the Woodstock days and the album features a duet with him. The two have a lot in common as both overcame drug addictions.
Leslie’s motive of accomplishment on this album as he states is, “I wanted my guitars to sound as big as I look.”
