ALICE COOPER guitarist/collaborator Dick Wagner will make a guest appearance on the sophomore album from Danish rock singer Maryann Cotton (born Jackie Patino), the son of KING DIAMOND bassist Hal Patino. Maryann (pictured below), who calls Wagner "one of my biggest heroes and inspirations ever," is currently working on material for the follow-up to this year's "Free Falling Angels", which will feature contributions from his father. Maryann says, "The last album, 'Free Falling Angels', was a very classic rock-inspired album, and the idea is to go darker one the next one, and show a more darker side of the character. We expect to be ready in February next year, to go in the studio and start the recordings for the album."

Maryann Cotton debuted his new band on September 14 at Amager Bio in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The group's lineup for the show consisted of the following musicians:

* Maryann Cotton - Vocals
* Hal Patino - Bass
* Sebastian Sly - Guitar
* Soren Berlev - Drums
* Ronni Clasen - Piano/Keyboards

"Free Falling Angels" was released on June 15 via Pure Steel Records. The CD featured guest appearances by four musicians who performed on KING DIAMOND's 1990 album, "The Eye"Hal Patino, guitarists Andy La Rocque and Pete Blakk, and drummer Snowy Shaw.

Maryann Cotton's career was launched in 2006 when he performed live on Danish TV as part of the "Scenen Er Din" program (Danish version of "Star Search").
