Dick Wagner's Update on "W2MN"

Post by WickedYoungMan » Sun Jun 12, 2011 6:52 am

Dick Wagner just posted this on his Facebook:

"Played my first recording session since my heart attack this week-Alice Cooper's "Welcome 2 My Nightmare" - that's me & orchestra on "Underture." My song "Something to Remember Me By" is also on Alice's new album. I think its a hit. That would be a comeback blessing. Thks for the friendship & encouragement. Been a rough 4 yrs. You've all played an important part in my "comeback" to life & music. Love you, my friends."

ok,so now we really are starting to formulate the track listing,with details.

1.)I'll bite your face off (originally a neal smith song)

2.)underture w/ d.wagner and an orchestra

3.) when hell comes home

4.) runaway train (dennis song?)

5.) something to remember me by (wagner's comp)

6.) I am made of you (a ballad I believe)

7.)and a track about a zombie beach party??

Great to have Wagner involved. He definitely needs his sound on this disc at least on a few songs.

Nice to see this project playing a role in his recovery too.

Glad to hear he's back in action. I was wondering if he would ever be able to play again. I hope he's back to form. This album needs his style all over it. I hope this album lives up to my expectations, which is for a very musical album.

Good news, a little bit more excited about this new album.

Well, I've got an idea knockin' on my brains:
Underture (w/ Wagner and Orchestra) could be the openning song of W2MN. Alice said in an interview that the first track will be an intro similar as the one in DaDa. The fact that it will be an orchestra on this one make me think about it.
Furthermore, the title of the song could be a play with words ; "ouverture".

That's just an idea ;)

is this going to be another concept album? i just can't see (at the mo) how the songs would fit together, given the titles.

^^ Of course it is. It's "Welcome 2 My Nightmare." The songs are what's important.
