Leslie West will forever be associated with the legendary rock trio Mountain. Still going strong after being in the business for more than 40 years, he enlisted an impressive list of guest guitarists for his new album Unusual Suspects. Slash, Joe Bonamassa, Zakk Wylde, Billy Gibbons and Steve Lukather answered his call without hesitation.
West is a lifelong sufferer from Diabetes. His leg was amputated above the knee in June during a life-saving surgery in June. Despite all this, he is adamant to tour behind his new album.
Unusual Suspects is released in Europe by Provogue Records. Release date: September 19 (September 20 in the USA).
