Legendary MOUNTAIN guitarist Leslie West returned to the stage last night for the first time since undergoing an emergency leg amputation last year. West played at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in New York City as part of a tour with Uli Jon Roth. Check out fan-filmed video footage of the concert below.According to JamBands.com, West — who performed while sitting in a wheelchair — opened his set with "People Get Ready" but was forced to pause halfway through the song due to his overwhelming emotions. The crowd responded with a standing ovation. West's leg was removed last late June just above the knee due to complications from diabetes. "I cried a couple fuckin' times," he told Billboard.com. "You still feel the nerves and stuff like that. I had to make a decision — lose my leg or lose my life. What are you gonna do? But I'll tell you, it's a good thing it wasn't one of my arms. Then I'd be really fucked."
