About the Author

Dick Wagner: Hit Songwriter, Legendary Lead Guitar Player, Producer

DICK WAGNER’S songs and lead guitar have been featured on more 200 renowned albums, garnering more than 35 Platinum and Gold records, BMI songwriter awards, Emmys and numerous prestigious international awards.

The Detroit area native helped define an era in rock history by playing lead guitar and writing songs for Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Kiss, Lou Reed, The Frost, The Bossmen, Peter Gabriel, Meat Loaf, Guns N’ Roses, Ringo Starr, Tina Turner, Etta James, Air Supply, Hall & Oates, Little Richard, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Lita Ford, Nina Simone,Frank Sinatra, and many more.

Legendary for his groundbreaking collaborations with Alice Cooper—for whom he was musical director, lead guitarist and co-writer of the icon’s biggest hits, including Only Women Bleed, You and Me, and Welcome To My Nightmare, Wagner was Cooper’s right hand man on such groundbreaking albums as Welcome to My Nightmare, Alice Cooper Goes to Hell, Lace and Whiskey, From the Inside, The Alice Cooper Show and Da Da. Together, Cooper and Wagner co-wrote the majority of Alice Cooper's top selling singles and albums, including more than 50 songs that are featured on 57 Alice Cooper albums worldwide.

September 2010: GIBSON.COM selected the guitar duo of Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter as #25 out of 50 in Gibson’s “Top 50 Guitar Solos of All Time” for their sizzling and legendary guitar work on Lou Reed’s live album, Rock ‘N’ Roll Animal.

The youth of Michigan and the mid-western United States first took notice of Wagner’s talent in 1964, when he formed his wildly popular band THE BOSSMEN, whose songs like Baby Boy were #1 radio favorites. In the late 1960s, as Wagner's work became more complex and featured a harder edge, he formed the THE FROST, recording three Billboard charted albums and drawing enthusiastic crowds to hear songs like Mystery Man and Rock N' Roll Music.

Nearly fifty years after launching his storied and dynamic career, hit songwriter, guitar virtuoso, producer and arranger, Dick Wagner, remains a brilliant and vibrant force on the pop/rock landscape he helped create.

Dick Wagner has once again delivered the goods - after n incredible career as a guitarist, and hit songwriter, he's now completed the hat trick with one of the coolest rock autobiography's to come out in some time. From the minute I picked it up, I could not set it down. I remember speaking with Dick about the book back some years ago, and when I read it, it was worth the wait. This is a no holds barred battle to the near death and fantastic recovery of one very cool rock star. Tony Conley,  Rock Guitar Daily
