Leslie West recieves New Truck
December 31, 2011

Leslie West was given the new MV-1 truck,by ManhattanMotorCars, which sells RollsRoyce,Bentley,and Lotus to name a few.The owner of the dealership,Brian Miller,General Mgr. Steven Schneir, and the guy that started VPGautos,Fred Drasner,who used to own the Daily News,saw on my facebook page,I had to cancel the Guitar Heroes tour because we could not find a wheelchair accessible Tour bus.

They saw this and Fred Drasner said give Leslie one of these new wheelchair friendly trucks,"I was so thrilled "to say the least,and it has made things so much easier till I learn to walk again mainly for my wife.It has 2 ramps that you can choose from ,a short one or a longer one and the wheelchair goes right in where the passenger seat goes.It is an incredible vehicle and I can't thank the guys enough.

We will have more press soon on my upcoming shows starting January 31 at BB KIngs in NYC with Uli Jon Roth from the Scorpions

Great news indeed! Was so sad to read he couldn't tour for that reason. What a cool initiative!

LOL ! And God bless him for it .

I seem to be late to the party more often than not anymore, but I just heard Unusual Suspects for the first time last week.

Damn! Nice album!

With the exception of the very last track, (which seems to have been destined to a totally different album and artist), it is a true smoker w/ some fine guitar from Leslie and guests .

I Was very disappointed when they had to cancel guitar heroes tour. I was going to the show at the filmore in Silver Spring.

Very Generous to give Leslie this truck so he can tour.

Hoping to see leslie, Uli and Micheal Shenker in the near future.

The folks at the car dealership scored a big hit -- above & beyond the call -- no, it isn't -- when it's music & they saw someone as great as Leslie in his situation, it became a no-brainer -- tremendous gesture -- Leslie is a guitar hero of mine too

Agree that this was a great gesture to a great guy/musician. Nice to hear a positive news event such as this...Nice to know there are still those who are willing to give and help a fellow Human Being...just my thoughts

Leslie gets emotional about 1:50 in. Great to see him back on stage.
