(Rock News Desk) Mountain legend Leslie West says he's learning to live with one leg after he lost his lower right limb in emergency surgery to deal with an infection.

The guitarist explains: "It changes everything. I can't just jump out of bed and go outside. It's been different, trying to remember you have one leg.

"You still feel it because the nerve endings are in there. It's called 'phantom pain' you think it's there but it's not. I've had to learn how to use crutches and be in a wheelchair. But it was either my leg or my life." more on this story
