Former ALICE COOPER Guitarist DICK WAGNER Suffers 'Very Serious' Heart Attack

ALICE COOPER fan site reports that former ALICE COOPER BAND guitarist Dick Wagner recently suffered a very serious heart attack. According to Dick Wagner's business partner Suzy Michelson, Wagner "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. If you want to send Dick a message you can do it via his web site 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 "Welcome to My Nightmare" band) for the upcoming Wagner/Hunter documentary, which also features Alice.

Wagner was Alice Cooper's right-hand man on the albums "Welcome to My Nightmare", "Goes To Hell", "Lace And Whiskey", "From The Inside" and "DaDa", helping in songwriting, composing, production and playing lead guitar.
