"You're in Houston, so let me ask you something," a gravelly, low voice asks on the other end of the phone. "Is the bed you're sleeping on from Finger Furniture?"
An odd question to hear outside of a TV commercial, to be sure. But even odder since the voice asking the question -- and now laughing -- comes from Leslie West, the classic-rock singer/guitarist best known for fronting the band Mountain of "Mississippi Queen" fame.
But it turns out that West has more than a passing interest in interior design of Texas homes, due to an interesting family tie.
