Wagner update
The following message has been posted on Dick Wagners official site:
"I have on occasion been able to reach the bottom of my heart for an emotion to define the character of a song. I have been able to feel deep love for certain people and to share the fruits of that love.
I've led an extraordinary/ordinary life. By most standards, I've "made it" in the music business. I will always be deeply grateful for those years of music and madness.
Today I sit in intensive Care at Scottsdale Healthcare, a state of the art hospital facility where the combined skills, compassion and technologies and prayers of thousands of people from around the world were converged on me as I lay dying from a massive heart attack. My kidneys had failed, the prognosis was not good, and I was in a world of hurt. I believe that my current state of recovery can be laid at the feet of every one of you people out there, who showed the tremendous outpouring of love for me and to me in a time of deepest need. My left arm and hand are completely useless, but doctors tell me that with occupational therapy, I should be able to be back playing guitar again.
As much as you've loved me and cared for me, I love and care for you right back, from the bottom of my heart."
Dick Wagner

Dick Wagner News
From Suzy Michelson, Dick Wagners business partner:
"Dick Wagner had a very serious heart attack. He has been in ICU all week on life support, but I am very relieved to tell you he is finally coming back to us! As of today, we expect Dick to fully recover. Dick is not only a brilliant songwriter and phenomenal guitar player, but also a very special and beautiful man"
Of course all our best wishes go out to Dick for a speedy recovery and we'll try and keep you updated on condition as we hear more information.. I'm sure if you want to send Dick a message you can do it via his website or MySpace page and they will be passed on.

In other Wagner news when Dick is fit again he will be recording some new music with Steve Hunter and Fred Mandel (of the WTMN band) for the upcoming Wagner/Hunter documentary, which also features Alice. A one minute trailer is featured here

Blabbermouth have an interview with Geoff Tate of Queensryche (Openers on the US leg of the tour) who has some nice things to say about Alice and his influence on his band. These are echoed in a yet unpublished interview conducted by STUK's own Mitch Lafon:
"It’s great and I can’t wait for it. Alice Cooper was the first rock concert I ever saw when I was a kid. I saw the Billion Dollar Babies tour and I guess I subconsciously was inspired by that. I thought, at the time, this is what a rock concert is. It defined my vision of what rock music is and I carried that with me. I like a theatrical production when I see a band and playing with him is going to be fantastic."
