Legendary Mountain Guitarist Leslie West Recovering After Emergency Leg Amputation

Legendary guitarist Leslie West has undergone surgery in Biloxi, MS. West had flown in to Mississippi to perform at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino with his band Mountain.

On Saturday, his leg began to swell, and as a diabetic he was rushed to the emergency room. He was diagnosed with the decision to go through an amputation in order to save his life. Surgery was a success, and the procedure removed his limb up to the knee.

West is expected to fully recover, and faces extensive rehabilitation. The family has requested that the public and media respect his privacy while he comes to terms with this life changing transition.
