ROCK HITstory

Dick Wagner

Wagner in 1995 released this collection of songs he wrote and co-wrote from his solo career as
 well as being with Alice Cooper. There's "Mystery Train" from his Early Frost album and
 "Motor City Showdown" from his self title "Richard Wagner" album. There is even the song
 "Just As I Am" Wagner wrote that was on Air Supply.

Then of course you have five songs from his collaboration with Alice. But since this is Wagner's
 album he sings vocals on these songs which are "I Might As Well Be On Mars", "How You
 Gonna See Me Now", "You And Me", "I Never Cry", and "Only Women Bleed". 
It's interesting to hear his version of the songs but have to say I'm use to Alice's vocals. 
But Wagner's guitar seems to sound much stronger on these tunes which I believe was his
 intension of doing since he is an excellent guitarist.

The artwork on the inside booklet shows some pictures of Wagner with Alice and on tour. 
There is a 1976 picture of Alice Cooper during The Welcome To My Nightmare Tour with 
the band holding a Gold Record that was presented to them in N.Y.C. The other picture show
 Wagner on stage with black top hat in the 1975 WTMN tour. Also a picture of Wagner from
 1978 King Of The Silver Screen tour which was Alice's "Lace & Whiskey" album. Then there
 are some other pictures from earlier groups and performances.
Although none from his time with Lou Reed.
