Default R.I.P. Leslie West - Mountain

I saw the man play many a time and was never disappointed. Some nice conversations as well.
One of my early guitar milestones was learning the
lead from “Theme from an Imaginary Western” note for note.
Enjoy your reunion with Felix...

This was taken by me at Convention Hall, Asbury Park in the 70's (1972???)

RIP Leslie.

RIP, indeed. A shock for sure. I went to see Mountain every time they came to Montreal in the very early 70's and my late wife saw them at Woodstock (before I met her). My favorite album was always Nantucket Sleighride which I still listen to once in a while.
