NEWS: Leslie West has amputation surgery

Sending my thoughts to Leslie West, who just had part of his leg amputated due to complications from diabetes.

According to Blabbermouth.net: “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. It was decided that an amputation was required 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.”
