Leslie West 26/12/20

American Rock guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, Leslie West (Video Of The Day), best known as a founding member and co-lead vocalist of Mountain, sadly passed away at the age of 75 this week, just days before Christmas. This legendary Power-Rock band made its electrifying debut at Woodstock in the summer of 1969, and thirty-five years and millions of album sales later, the line-up still included the whiskey voiced West, plus the incomparable Corky Laing on drums (who believe it or not did not play with them at Woodstock), when we were lucky enough to see them at Dartford's Mick Jagger Centre, back in February 2005.
