Leslie West streams Soundcheck in full
Hear Mountain man's entire 16th solo album now via The Blues
Leslie West has made his upcoming album Soundcheck available to stream in its entirety via The Blues.
The album – which features guest appearances from Peter Frampton, Brian May, Max Middleton, Bonnie Bramlett and the late Jack Bruce – is released on November 30 via Provogue/Mascot Label Group.
West made his name in Mountain and has influenced guitarists including Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhoads and Jethro Tull's Martin Barre.
Barre says: “Prior to going into the studio to record Aqualung, I met Leslie, whose playing I absolutely loved. Leslie is well known for his association with Les Paul Juniors, and just after meeting him, I picked up a 1958 Junior because his sound was so incredible. I would say that he's the only guitarist who has ever influenced me directly.”
