Corky Laing - Stick It

Canadian born Corky Laing is probably best known as the drummer with Mountain. Corky Joined the band shortly after Mountain played at the famous Woodstock Festival although he did receive a gold disc for sales of the soundtrack album after over dubbing drums on Ten Years Afters’ performance.

Whilst with Mountain Corky Laing recorded three studio albums with Mountain before the band split. Following the split Corky along with Mountain guitarist Leslie West formed a rock three piece with former Cream bassist Jack Bruce. West Bruce and Laing recorded two studio albums and a live album before West and Laing re formed Mountain along with Felix Papplardi.

 Since 1974 Corky and Leslie have led Mountain through various line ups and recordings and continue to record and perform today at numerous concerts across the world

In addition to his work with Mountain Corky Laing has recorded one solo album and formed the band Cork with former Spin Doctors guitarist Eric Shenkman and recorded a further two studio albums with the band which has also featured former Jimi Hendrix bassist Noel Redding.

More recently Corky Laing and Leslie West published their own book of on the road stories entitled Nantucket Sleighride and other On The Road Stories which sold exceedingly well.

Stick It is the next stage on from the book and on this double CD audio book Corky Laing re tells many of the stories associated with working in a leading rock band over the last forty years. The stories are told in an incredibly frank, engaging and amusing manner and will appeal also to those people who may not necessarily be fans of Corky Laing’s work with Mountain and as such should appeal to fans of rock biographies.
