Widely recognized as perhaps the single most important protagonist of neoclassical guitar playing, he is seen by many as a trendsetter who has often been considerably ahead of his time. Roth invented his own unique instrument - the now-legendary six-octave Sky guitar - which is without peer. He has been cited by countless guitarists from all over the world as one of their main influences. LESLIE WEST - Leslie West has gained fame the world over during his over 30-year career as one of the most innovative and influential musicians in the history of rock music. He is most noted for his role as leader of the explosive hard rock trio Mountain, which was named by VH1 as one of the Top 100 Hard Rock Groups of all time. With Mountain, West climbed the heights of rock stardom on the strength of a unique, signature guitar sound and classic songs such as "Mississippi Queen," "Never in My Life," "Theme for an Imaginary Western," and "Nantucket Sleighride," all of which are staples of rock radio to this day. West has earned the admiration of a long list of famous peers. During his career, he has recorded or played with a litany of rock icons, including Billy Joel, Van Halen, The Who, Mick Jagger, and Jimi Hendrix, to name just a few. In fact, Eddie Van Halen, Michael Schenker, and Richie Sambora have all cited West as an important influence on their own music. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=102286 B.B.
