Alice Cooper Guitarist Makes Comeback After Paralysis, Coma, Stroke and more
"I've come back from a lot of major stuff," Wagner now tells The Detroit Free Press with bluntness. Wagner is the guitar player on Lou Reed's Rock 'n' Roll Animal and many Alice Cooper staples such as Welcome to My Nightmare. He's also played with Aerosmith, Lou Reed, KISS, Meat Loaf, Steve Perry, Peter Gabriel, Rod Stewart, Little Richard and many more.
In recent years, Wagner had to re-teach himself how to play guitar. "It was so terrible at first," he admits. "It was a lot of work, a lot of stress, but I came through it with sheer determination and some brilliant doctors."
Wagner reunited with Cooper and producer Bob Ezrin for 2011's Welcome 2 My Nightmare album, contributing the song "Something to Remember Me By" and guitar work to the album-closing "Underture." more on this story
