Dick Wagner, from Saginaw. Founder of Michigan groups The Bossmen and The Frost, also formed Ursa Major in New York, the original line-up included Billy Joel on keyboards and Rick Mangone on drums.
Another obituary. In 1973, along with guitarist Steve Hunter, he recorded the Lou Reed album “Rock & Roll Animal”. In 1974 he joined up with Alice Cooper. Wagner played guitar and also co-wrote many tunes with Alice. An incredible guitarist, writer, producer…and a wonderful person. Rock on Mr. Wagner. (RIP July 30, 2014) Ed Buchanan
