i completely owe my love for this band to my boyfriend's father, who got my boyfriend into it, who then recommended it to me.
Leslie West is one of the greatest guitarists in the history of music- man is a legend in his own time. i saw Mountain live at BB King's in NYC a few years back, and it changed my life. maybe that sounds corny but i don't care. the music ... just... it reminds me of Emily Dickinson's definition of poetry:
"If I read a book and it makes my whole body feel so cold that no fire can ever warm me, I know then that is poetry. If I feel as if the top of my head were taken off, I know then that is poetry."
every one of their songs is a work of art, a matchless beauty.
if anyone here likes classic rock, i urge you to look up this band.
