West, Bruce and Laing were a blues-rock power trio super-group consisting of Leslie West (guitar and vocals), Jack Bruce (bass, harp, keyboards and vocals) and Corky Laing (drums and vocals). In 2009 West and Laing teamed up with Jack Bruce's son, Malcolm, and began touring as West, Bruce Jr. and Laing

West, Bruce and Laing

The trio formed in Chicagomarker in the spring of 1972 following the breakup of Mountain, West and Laing's previous band. In the 60s Bruce had been a member of legendary Britishmarker rock band Cream, whose sound had strongly influenced that of Mountain (Mountain's bassist/vocalist Felix Pappalardi previously had produced all but one of Cream's albums, and also performed with them as a sideman).

The trio toured extensively and released two studio albums, 1972's Why Dontcha and 1973's Whatever Turns You On. They disbanded shortly before the release of their live album Live 'n' Kickin' in 1974.

West and Laing reunited in a reformation of Mountain in 1985 and have continued playing together ever since.

West, Bruce Jr. and Laing

In 2009 West and Laing teamed up with Jack Bruce's son, Malcolm Bruce, and will be touring as West, Bruce Jr. and Laing. This new group is being considered a reformation of West, Bruce and Laing as most venues are describing Malcolm as "filling in" for his father and they have been rehearsing several Cream as well as West, Bruce and Laing songs.
