Leslie West : Still Climbing

You can’t keep a genuine guitar hero down.

Despite losing most of his right leg in a desperate battle against diabetes, former Mountain mainman Leslie West is still gigging and this is his best album in many years.

Powered by gutsy blues rock but credibly contemporary, Dying Since The Day I Was Born finds him duelling with Alterbridge axeman Mark Tremonti, there’s redneck rock in Hatfield Or McCoy and Long Red, plus classy covers of Feeling Good and When A Man Loves A Woman, the latter with Jonny Lang.
