Dick started with The Frost in the late '60s (a Grande Ballroom "house" performer). He composed and played with Alice Cooper, was a credited player with Lou Reed (that amazing intro and lead on Sweet Jane on the live "Rock n Roll Animal) and a session lead who sat in on recordings for at least KISS and Aerosmith while their band-member leads were too zonked out to make it to the studio (Get Your Wings and DESTROYER!)...probably others. If you are a fan of classic rock, you HAVE heard him play and/or heard his compositions performed by big-name artists. I met the wife of the modern-day Dick Wagner Band's guitar player and have since gotten to know Ray. I am sure that I never would have gotten to know and love Dick Wagner the guitar player and composer if I hadn't met Sue but I'm sure glad that I did. If I hadn't met her, I'd never have become a fan of this great musician and all of his spectacular work... So, now you know... Rock ON!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQxTIre9354
Well, the Rock Hall is inducting another group of musicians, and they are Green Day Stevie Ray Vaughan Lou Reed Joan Jett & The Blackhearts Bill Withers The Paul Butterfield Blues Band Additionally the 5 Royals will receive the early influences award, and Ringo Starr will receive the Award of Excellence. As a reminder, these are the groups that did not make the cut this year. Kraftwerk Sting Chic The Smiths Nine Inch Nails N.W.A In my personal opinion, called it on Green Day being inducted, happy for Stevie Ray as well. I feel that Kraftwerk still deserves the nod however. Discuss
