Leslie West was one of the most important guitarists and songwriters of modern rock music.
He became widely known through his Hard Rock band, Mountain.
West helped spread the Gibson Les Paul Jr. guitars with P-90 pickups, along with the use of Sunn Amplifiers, creating a sound that became a trademark.
