I recently got the opportunity to review the new Mountain CD and speak to its lead singer/guitarist, Leslie West. This is a man who has been working it strong for over 30 years, even doing movies and voiceovers. His voice sounds better than ever! I mean, anyone who’s listened to “Mississippi Queen”…”you know what I mean”.
I asked him to what does he attribute this crystal clear, but not teenaged voice. He said without hesitation, it’s because he stopped doing drugs. He also recently stopped smoking, since he was diagnosed with bladder cancer. So, among the many other benefits of staying clean and sober, you can restore a beautiful voice.
