Leslie West hooks May and Frampton as guests

Mountain co-founder Leslie West has revealed his next solo album will features Brian May and Peter Frampton in guest spots.

The follow-up to 2013’s Still Climbing is to be called Soundcheck, and it’s been pencilled in for release in November.

West says: “I’m thrilled with how this came out. Other guests are on it as well, but that will come out in a little while.

“I’m excited for the sound on this – it’s extraordinary, if I do say so myself.”

More details will be released in due course.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
