City Slang: Dick Wagner gets writing

Posted By on Mon, Jan 2, 2012 at 1:08 PM

Dick Wagner of Lou Reed / Alice Cooper / Frost fame has written an e-book.

According to the man himself, “Dick Wagner’s Not Only Women Bleed stands tall amongst a proliferation of memoirs about sex, drugs and rock and roll. Supported by an edgy and ironic wit, Wagner creates rich visualizations that transport and envelop the reader in place and time. An agile and intuitive writer, Wagner’s phrasing is both colorful and literate. He delivers tales of reckless behavior and intimate debauchery with an emotional reverberation that will resonate with a wide reading audience. A man whose fans and friends refer to as “The Maestro of Rock,” Wagner shares a lifetime of experience as a songwriter, lead guitarist and producer/arranger with top international performance and recording artists, including Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel, Air Supply, and dozens more.”

Further, “The hands-on, day to day collaboration with his editor, Susan Michelson, struck a rare balance, creating a great read that preserves all that is fresh and different about Wagner’s book. No ghost writing here no heavy handed “fit-the-mold” editing and rewriting. The result is a hard-driving, heart-driven life scripture, vividly and joyfully conveyed. In the pages of this book you will find reflections of family and personal dynamics, uncovering pure and unexpected emotion. Wagner’s collection of vignettes takes you on a literary journey that is an easy, compelling read.”

Sounds fantastic.
