Sad to hear Leslie died. He was an awesome musician. Saw him not to long ago at the Ridgefield Playhouse in Ridgefield, Ct. He was awesome and funny…I saw Leslie and Mountain a month before Woodstock at the Wiskie a go go in L.A. He invited us to the festival..He didn’t know my relative was Max Yasgur. Rest in Peace Leslie West (Weinstein).

So I got my 6 year old daughter a cowbell and I have her practice rhythm to Mississippi Queen and she loves that song. Of course she has two guitars and a piano, but she loves that cowbell and that song the most! Rest in Peach Leslie.
