Drummer Corky Laing to Play the Music of Mountain on European and U.S. Tour

by VVN Music

Corky Laing is bringing the music of Mountain to both European and U.S. audiences.

Laing, a native of Montreal, Canada, actually got his start playing for the vocal group The Ink Spots in 1961. Later in the decade, he started playing rock drums with a group called Energy which was produced by Felix Pappalardi.

In 1969, he became the drummer for Mountain, playing on the albums Climbing! (1970) with such classics as Mississippi Queen and Theme From an Imaginary Western, Nantucket Sleighride and Flowers of Evil (both 1971) and, when the group broke up in 1972, he went on with guitarist Leslie West and bassist Jack Bruce to form West, Bruce and Laing.

For the new tour, Laing is promising an evening of Mountain music from the three studio albums from the early 70's along with Avalanche (1974), Go For Your Life (1985), Man's World (1996), Mystic Fire (2002) and Masters of War (2007), all from later group reunions.
