Leslie West, the legendary guitarist, vocalist and original founding member of MOUNTAIN, will release a new studio album, "Still Climbing", on October 28 via Provogue Records/Mascot Label Group.
The CD is a testimonial to the strength and durability of West's artistry. Born October 22, 1945, as he approaches his 68th birthday, West has packed some of the most soulful and searing vocal performances of his half-century career into these 11 tracks. His guitar has never sounded more massive or riff-orientated.
West, who ascended rock's Mt. Olympus with Mountain in a historic performance at 1969's Woodstock festival, accomplished all of that despite a life-threatening battle with diabetes that cost him most of his right leg in 2011, just after his previous Mascot Label Group release, "Unusual Suspects", was recorded.

Twisted Sister frontman shares his take on the Twisted Manifesto with Twisted Sister - The Movie:
"In the bars, bands were expected to be human jukeboxes - regurgitate the hits, play the music that people want, but not too loud, so they can talk, and pick up guys or girls or do what they do. And Twisted Sister from day one refused to be that band. We would be heard, we would be loud. We didn’t care who was there, who wasn’t there, you were going to watch us, you were going to be aware of us, and we would do whatever it took to get your attention.
