( Dick Wagner, celebrated guitarist known for his work with Alice Cooper, KISS and Lou Reed, has died. He was 71. According to the Detroit Free Press, Wagner succumbed to respiratory failure following two weeks in intensive care after undergoing a cardiac procedure.

Wagner's website posted the following on his passing: "It is with a heavy heart and great sorrow we have to let you know that Dick Wagner has left this world. Dick had a huge heart, which is perhaps why it gave him so much trouble, it was simply too full of love, of music and life.

"His creativity and passion will live on forever in the legacy he has left for us, in his music and his words. We have so much of him to celebrate. Dick was prolific not only in the tangible realm of what we can see and hear but in the boundless energy of his spirit, which will never die.

"He was a fighter, but in the end his body couldn't keep up with his spirit, and so he lays to rest. Dick said in 2013, 'Love is in the air. Breathe deep.' Take Dick's advice into your own hearts, and notice all of the beauty in the world, even when it seems cruel and unfair." more on this story is an official news provider for
