Dick Wagner may not ba a familiar name to a lot of fans of the artists he played with, but his guitar riffs are. The versatile player who logged time working with Alice Cooper, Peter Gabriel, Lou Reed, Aerosmith and KISS passed away Wednesday (7/30) after contracting a lung infection following a recent surgery.  Paul Stanley, weighing in on Wagner's death, said, 'Dick was a stellar player' and called his playing with Steve Hunter on Lou Reed's 1974 live album Rock & Roll Animal '...legendary', adding that Wagner was 'A huge talent with a huge heart. A great unsung hero.'
