West was affectionately nicknamed "The King of Tone" by his legions of fans, referring to his influential and world renowned guitar tone. West was also nicknamed "The Fattest Fingers in Rock N' Roll", due to his large build.

On June 20, 2011 West had his lower right leg amputated as a result of complications from diabetes. Leslie made his 1st public appearance after his surgery on August 13, 2011

Keep it going Leslie!


We are raised to honor all the wrong explorers & discoverers-
-thieves planting flags, murderers carrying crosses.
Let us at last praise the colonizers of dreams.
