Leslie West (From Mountain fame check the video of "Mississipi Queen" live in Paris ) has had his lower right leg amputated in a life-saving operation related to his diabetes.
He underwent the emergency surgery after being admitted to a hospital in Biloxi, Mississippi, on Saturday when his leg started to swell and his foot went septic.
"The doctors tried for two days to save it to no avail. The decision to amputate was one that was necessary to save his life as the infection was spreading throughout his body," his wife, Jenni West, said in an email.
