Leslie West talks to Iris about the new album, "Still Climbing."
Leslie West has been there and back. He's one hell of a guitarist, and we all know the mega hit Mississippi Queen from Mountain, a staple of all Classic Rock libraries. He's been to Portland for shows at the Aladdin and each time just blows away the audience. The best news is that he keeps getting better and better all the time! Not only health wise, but I have to say that the new album "Still Climbing" is fantastic! Song for song, it's so strong!
We talk about the album, his hesitation of having his wife involved with his music and the whole ordeal with losing his leg. He was very open about everything that I asked and I will forever be grateful that I got to talk to him. Enjoy the conversation!
