Anybody else heree a fan of Leslie West (mostly his later albums). I have Blues To Die For and it's among one of the best heavy bleus albums I have ever heard. It's great overall, he has a tone to die for and he's one hell of a player! Highly recommended to all you blues fans out there.
Was he the guitarist from Mountain?
Im a big fan. Mountain stands among my favorite bands. I like his more recent heavy blues stuff too, but its still only a shadow of his glory days with Mountain. You realy gotta listen to Mountain's live stuff from the late 60s early 70s. Its amazing. He also had even better tone back then IMO. With his sunn amps and Les paul Jr.
Yeah, my first Mountain album was Twin Peaks you know! Mountain is great, but I think that goes in the classic rock forum. Leslie West as a solo artist is mroe blues stuff. He's also playing on the Joe Bonamassa track "If Heartaches Were Nickels" which is cool!
