Leslie West Cranks It Up For A New Album

Leslie West is returning to the studio this month to start work on the follow up to his Grammy nominated, Unusual Suspects, one of the finest pieces of rocking blues to cross my path in 2011. He's being joined again by producer Fabrizio Grossi, who helped make the last album maybe the finest sounding hard rock record I heard that year.

2013's new release sheet is already shaping up nicely, and after Unusual Suspects raging slab of sound, I'm sure that this new record will go that much further - the combination of West, Grossi, super drummer Kenny Aronoff and a host of great cameos (Joe Bonamassa, Slash, Steve Lukather, Zakk Wylde) made for a great record, and I can't wait to hear what this combo dishes out next. I'm guessing I'll have to drive up to New York and check on them, make sure they don't burn the studio to the ground.
