Leslie West

Leslie West, best known as a founding member and co-lead vocalist of the hard rock band Mountain, has died at the age of 75. 

Joe Donahue spoke with West in 2009 and we re-share that interview now, in memoriam. 

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets. Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady. And yes, he reads every single book.
