West

Decades Active: 1960s 1990s

Biography

Formed in San Francisco in 1967, West revolved around guitarists Ron Cornelius and Michael Stewart, the latter of whom was previously a member of We Five. Lloyd Perata (guitar), Joe Davis (bass), Bob Claire and Jon Sagen (drums) completed the line-up featured on West, a gentle country/folk collection which contrasted the acid-rock preferred by many geographical contemporaries. Bridges offered a similar fare and having shed some of the MOR trappings prevalent on their debut, West emerged with a confident, contemporary sound. However, the members embarked on separate careers soon after its release. Michael, brother of singer-songwriter John Stewart, then resurrected We Five, while Cornelius found fame accompanying Leonard Cohen, and as a solo act.
