Leslie West's new album, Unusual Suspects, hits stores today, and you can check out a clip of one of the songs below. The track is called "Mudflap Mama," and features the talents of none other than former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash.
"You can't get more basic and efficient than this," croaks Leslie West as he gestures at his brand-new Les Paul Junior. Gibson has given him the first of their re-issued line, in honor of all he did for that model by playing it to death-his earlier ones literally fell apart from use -- in Mountain and West, Bruce & Laing.
Guitarist Leslie West of Mountain will be releasing a new solo album, Unusual Suspects, in Europe on Sept. 19 via Provogue Records. The album, a follow-up to 2006's Blue Me, features several guest appearances by big-name guitarists, including Slash, Joe Bonamassa, Zakk Wylde, Billy Gibbons and Steve Lukather.
