Here is how Ace Frehley bid farewell to his dear friend:
“I lost a dear friend yesterday, he was Leslie West the lead guitarist from Mountain… Probably best known for their hit Mississippi Queen…
He was an amazing guitarist, and I was awaiting a call from him, since I did a remake of one of his songs on Origins Vol. 2… But now I’ll never get a chance to hear what he thought of the cover…
It’s so sad, we’ve lost so many great guitar 🎸players this year… My prayers are with his family & friends during this holiday season! He was one of the great guitarists and a good friend over the years! He will be missed in the Rock & Roll Community! I’m sure he’s up in R&R Heaven w/all the other musicians we’ve lost! R.I.P Mr. West!”
