Leslie West obituary


Leslie West, who has died aged 75 following a cardiac arrest, could claim to be one of the creators of heavy metal. His band Mountain made a spectacular impact when they played their fourth gig at the original Woodstock festival in August 1969, alongside the likes of the Who, Jimi Hendrix and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

When I was a kid, the theme tune was the only reason I watched Weekend World. (For the youngsters and non-Brits, Weekend World was a current affairs program hosted by Brian Walden.)

GNU Leslie. :(

I remember ol' Leslie from an audio cassette where we did not remember his last name (strange enough we were East germans so there might have been a fools bridge ) Anyway, he was a great rocker and is now another one hopefully picked up by the round earths version of THE GRIM REAPER
