Thanks Bruce.

I started thinking about which song of theirs I used to play in cover bands...

Dreams of Milk and Honey
Never in My Life
Silver Paper
Crossroader
Theme From an Imaginary Western
Mississippi Queen

I know I saw him in concert more than any other guitarist by double.

Maybe I’ll make a resolution to get my ‘63 Melody Maker out of the case and revisit some Mountain.

"Beside the sea" will always be one of my favorite songs of care
He made that p90 sound huge.
When I play guitar, I'm trying to find that kind of volume

There is also another thread here about Leslie's passing, I think it's called R.I.P Leslie West. I am amazed at how much Mountain music there is on YouTube including a lot of old concert recordings from Woodstock all the way up to more recent independent work from Mr. West himself which I have been binge watching for the past week. it brought back a lot of fond memories of the many Mountain concerts I was at in the very early 70's. They were the only band that I went to see each and every time they came to Montreal.

Yea, I posted a pic (in that other thread) I took of Leslie in the early 70's when he played in
Asbury Park, NJ.

I dabble in guitar and bass also. Blood of the sun and others where among the
first songs I learned.

BTW Rush was the opening act for Mountain when I saw them.
Neil Peart mentioned that concert in one of his books.

We lost both of them in 2020. RIP guys.
