Corky Laing´s MOUNTAIN

Corky Laing's MOUNTAIN

US/CAN | blues rock

MOUNTAIN was founded by Cream producer Felix Pappalardi in 1968 in New York. The heavy blues rock trio was centered around guitarist Leslie West. At times the trio was expanded to a quartet with a keyboard player. This was the case at the famous performance during the Woodstock Festivals.

MOUNTAIN is characterized by its mighty mountains of sound and heavy, heavy rock with distinctive, expansive guitar improvisations. Hits like “Mississippi Queen” and “Nantucket Sleighride” made MOUNTAIN famous and are still relevant today.

In the eventful history of MOUNTAIN, the line-up has changed several times, but has kept the constant Corky Laing on drums.

Corky Laing is now reforming the band for the umpteenth time to what it always was. One of the most competent heavy bands that can effortlessly compete with young bands with the finest high-pressure rock. The absence of Leslie West, who cannot play for health reasons, can tour more hardly makes any difference.

Corky Laing has now managed to bring a new formation onto the stage with Richie Scarlet (ex-Ace Frehley Band) on guitar and Joe Venti (ex-Carmine Appice, -Billy Squire, -Frank Marino, -Kofi Baker et al.) on bass. which is in no way inferior to the original in terms of quality and power.

Line up:

Richie Scarlet: guitar
Joe Venti: bass, vocals
Corky Laing: drums
