Tue, 21 Jun 2011 09:09:07
Mountain guitarist Leslie West is recovering after his lower right leg was amputated. The amputation was necessary when West's leg began to swell after he flew from New Jersey to Biloxi for one of the band's gigs. West went to a hospital in Biloxi and part of the leg below the knee was removed on Monday.
The condition was related to West's diabetes. We send our best wishes for a speedy recovery to West.
