I never went for the either / or, heaven or hell thing. I figured there were more than two places.

So I think Leslie West and Felix Pappalardi are in the same place now. Mother Theresa isn't there, but neither is Pappalardi's gun toting wife.

I saw Leslie live with Mountain a couple of times. Also saw him in 1973 when he was touring with "Leslie West's Wild West Show" with Leslie West, Mitch Ryder, Corky Laing, etc. They did the Mountain hits and the Mitch Ryder hits. The 1973 tour was also when Corky Laing did the drum solo after setting his drums on fire. He did some trick with pouring gel lighter fluid on the heads or something. Anyway, It was a hell of a show.

here's something to check out...

Just picking up on this. What a bummer. One of my favorite bands. It's been so long, I had forgotten about Pappalardi in 1983. How bizarre that was. I'll be on a Mountain binge tomorrow. Leslie West - RIP
