.
Mountain Legend Leslie West Loses Leg was a top 11 story of 2011 for June. Here is the recap: (Rock News Desk) Mountain's Leslie West has had his lower right leg amputated after suffering an infection connected with diabetes.

Doctors spent two days trying to avoid the extreme measure but surgery was deemed essential to keep him alive as the disease began to spread through his body.

The 65-year-old star was on a flight to Biloxi, Mississippi, to perform with the respected hard rock band when his leg began to swell and discolor. On arrival he was taken to hospital where doctors identified the infection was complicated by "peripheral arterial disease and blood clotting factors." - more on this story
