A Tribute To Leslie West Of Mountain In WZLX's Decibel Diaries Sunday Night


Sunday nights 10-midnight on WZLX and wzlx.com, it's the Decibel Diaries with Carter Alan, two hours of music, interviews, and stories from his Vaults. This week (1-3-21) on the show:

It's a tribute to the late guitarist and singer Leslie West, whom we lost on December 23rd at the age of 75. The talented bear of a man was famous for his enormous weight back in the early 70's as a member of Mountain and sang the group's biggest hit "Mississippi Queen." Mountain played Woodstock and then had a four-decade on-off relationship right up to the present. Leslie developed complications from diabetes and had a leg amputated, lost most of his weight, but kept on playing and releasing music.

In 2012 Leslie called Carter to talk about a recent solo album and upcoming visit to Boston. We'll remember a Classic Rock great by playing back the interview and a bunch of Leslie's songs.

The second part of the show is a re-run of the hilarious occasion when Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer visited Carter Alan's midday show at WZLX in 2007.
