Journey guitarist Neal Schon took to social media to pay tribute to Mountain icon Leslie West, who passed away on December 23rd.
Schon shared a video tribute to West and he wrote, “What a year friends.. first Ed and now Leslie West. Wanted to pay tribute Leslie tonight as he truly was a major influence on my playing and he really taught me to Soar. Ever since seeing Mountain at Woodstock with ‘Theme for an Imaginary Western’ I was blown away by his majestic playing. God Bless Leslie RIP brother.”
