Leslie West (born Leslie Weinstein on October 22, 1945) is an American rock guitarist, singer and songwriter. Originally named Leslie Weinstein, West was born in New York City, grew up in Hackensack, New Jersey, and in East Meadow, Forest Hills and Lawrence.After his parents divorced, he changed his surname to West. His musical career began with The Vagrants, an R&B/Blue-eyed soul-rock band influenced by the likes of The Rascals that was one of the few teenage garage rock acts to come out of Manhattan itself (as opposed to the Bohemian Greenwich Village scene of artists, poets and affiliates of the Beat Generation, which produced bands like The Fugs and The Velvet Underground). The Vagrants had two minor hits in the Eastern US: 1966's "I Can't Make a Friend" and a cover of Otis Redding's "Respect" the following year. In September 2009, Leslie West: The Sound & The Story was released; a guitar instructional DVD from Fret12. The DVD includes the story and breakdown of Leslie's biggest hits, including "Mississippi Queen". Guest appearances from Zakk Wylde, Joe Satriani, Mark Tremonti, and Corky Laing are also included West continues to make occasional appearances on radio, notably on Howard Stern's radio show.

Leslie West, Corky Laing, (and new bassist Rev Jones) light up the same stage they lit up 40 years ago. Its amazing that 40 years later just how HEAVY Mountain still plays. They STILL sound BAD ASSED, fresh, innovative, after so many years. Leslie's amazing tone and 10 ton chord progression is on display here.
From the album As Phat As It Gets, Leslie West tributes the band he started with. Like fellow New Yorkers the Rascals, the Vagrants prominently featured a Hammond organ, and often played soul-influenced rock. The Vagrants were far more guitar-based than the Rascals, however, as well as projecting a more garagey, less mature outlook; their later material lands somewhere between the Rascals and Vanilla Fudge. Most famous for featuring Leslie West on guitar in his pre-Mountain days, the Vagrants were extremely popular in their home base of Long Island, NY in the mid-'60s. Although they never charted, several singles are now choice collectibles. One of the few rock bands signed to the folkie Vanguard label, the Vagrants cut some fair singles between 1965 and 1968. "I Can't Make a Friend," which shows up on some garage compilations, is the most well-known of their initial efforts. The group took their closest swipe at stardom after Felix Pappalardi helped them sign to Atco. A rock version of Otis Redding's "Respect" (which surfaced on the Nuggets compilation) was a hit in some Eastern regions in 1967. After a couple of other singles on Atco, the group broke up in late 1968, when West formed Mountain (which also included Pappalardi). Much of the Vagrants' material was reissued in the mid-'90s. Today, it's Leslie West who remains a rock 'n roll legend. In fact, the term "legend" is no exaggeration. Leslie's exploits include rare demo "jam" sessions with John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix ...
