Leslie West Releasing New Album With Slash, Zakk Wylde and Billy Gibbons (A Top Story)
Unusual Suspects features West alongside some of the world's finest guitar players including Slash, blues-rock guitar superstar Joe Bonamassa of Black Label Society, ex-Ozzy guitarist and Black Label Society frontman Zakk Wylde, ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and Toto's Steve Lukather.
"These guys don't just show up to play on everybody's albums," said West. "They're all stars in their own right, and fantastic players – everyone with their own sound and style, about as far from 'the usual suspects' as it gets."
Illness almost stopped the album happening; indeed it could have ended West's life. - more on this story
