Leslie West: the new album - Still Climbing!

Leslie West, the legendary guitarist, vocalist and original founding member of Mountain, will release a new studio album "Still Climbing" on October 28th via Provogue Records / Mascot Label Group.

Since his historic performance with Mountain at the 1969 Woodstock Festival, West has enjoyed a glittering career spanning over half a century, accomplished in spite of a life threatening battle with diabetes, which cost him his right leg in 2011 (shortly before the release of his “Unusual Suspects” album).

"I’m lucky it wasn’t one of my hands or I’d be screwed," says West. "It was a difficult struggle, and after the amputation I didn’t know whether I’d ever want to or be able to perform again. A month later I played at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp in New York City, and I heard my guitar on stage and that was it. I knew I had to keep going."

Looked upon by West as a sequel to “Unusual Suspects”, which featured collaborations with the likes of Slash, Zakk Wylde, Steve Lukather, Joe Bonamassa and Billy Gibbons, “Still Climbing” sees West joining forces with Jonny LangJohnny Winter, Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider and Alter Bridge and Creed’s Mark Tremonti.

The fusion burner on the album. Insertion Point came from one of those ideas that I rush to write down then think about all night instead of sleeping. The A section came from an EWI patch that I was fooling around with, and can still be heard in the final mix. Ric and Dave took the tune and turned it up to eleven. This song also features some of the guitar work that I'm most proud of.

Dan Wexler,John Aquilino: ICON - set to play again

Dan Wexler

It is with deep regret that we must inform everyone that the Schoolboys will not be performing at the legends of the Mason Jar event on September 20, 2013.

The timing of this event and the band's current schedule working on their forthcoming new ICON release could not be resolved.

The present-day lineup of ICON (previously know as Schoolboys); consisting of Stephen Clifford, Dan Wexler, John Aquilino, Pat Dixon, and Dave Henzerling have been hard at work for quite some time in the development of the new release and are looking forward to live performances in the future.

We appreciate all of your support and hope to see you soon at the next ICON show.
