Alice Cooper's electric guitar player returns after five years
Dick Wagner, who has cut his teeth with Cooper on albums like Welcome To My Nightmare, Goes To Hell and Lace and Whisky, was left unable to play his beloved electric guitar after experiencing the heart attack and stroke.
He was then beset with a number of health complications including water on the brain, coma, kidney failure and as a recently as January 2011 a near-fatal blood clot.
Speaking to the Detroit Free Press, Wagner said: "I've come back from a lot of major stuff.
"I never wanted stardom. It's not what I was born for. I'm a musician first and foremost. Whatever stardom I do have is strictly bestowed on me by people who like what I do. All I want, really, is to have great music."
He went on to talk about how he had to re-teach himself how to play the musical instrument, which for someone of his renown was a difficult and emotional affair.
"It was a lot of work, a lot of stress, but I came through it with sheer determination and some brilliant doctors," he told the news provider.
